    i do not have the room to tent the vehicle. im not buying chinese junk tent just to do this one thing either.
    also, yeah, not easy taking pictures of 'wolfspiders' underneath such domain

    i can take pictures of the webbing though, though the best one would be using a snake cam into the tail light, which im just not going to do

    i assure you this story is not fantasy

    there is one particular behavior which led me to the... infestation

    silken strands,
    in a grouping, from part of the underbody, connecting to the floor, like puppet strings, anchoring the vehicle to the ground

    though they re appear when the vehicle is moved, or if the webbing is manually cleared
    seems like multiple spiders are working together here

    i should probably tell you people more of the one which decided to move in with me.... it was not a widow :)
    i can see the widows which moved out, they are also taking 'strategic position' outside in the open, at my building complex, at least one of them are,
    directly in a plain open sight, a gateway rather, which is seldom used by humans, (perhaps only twice a day)
    this is an odd location for such creature. i would definitely call it bold. i study nature.

    though the one which lived with me seems to have been doing a bit of studying on me.
    i would catch smaller males of a similar species of turbo jumping spider, though not the same species as her, in my lair,
    there was one particular serenade which i managed on my electric musical instrument, it must have been at the exact moment of her meal.
    i am certain the males were simply there to feed her on demand. yes, this music i played, must have been during this feeding, i am sure of it.
    she was quite the fan.
    spiders are funny little creatures.

    only one needs to hear my tune :)

    There was an episode or two on Breaking Bad where Walt and Jesse would cook their meth under the guise that “Vamonos Pest Control” was actually fumigating the house.

    So that got me thinking…since you don’t want to invest in a “chinese junk tent”, you could instead have your entire house fumigated (since they’re now in your house/bedroom), to include the garage where you park your Expy with all the windows down. This would kill all the nasty arachnids that are still in your ride and now in your house.

    So when the spiders take over the world I'm going to say you started the great infestation

    update

    some funny little sh** with a sense of humor decided to jump onto my arm the absolute moment i was drifting into sleep
    thee most vulnerable state to be in. perfect timing, that little sh**

    i flung that thing off me so damn fast
    it puts its cute little arms up in the air like as if it were the previous species i mentioned in this thread
    but its not.
    its fast, but not like the other one.
    its cute. its trying to be like the fast one. but its not.
    but its trying to be.

    I hate to break it you but they are all conspiring to develop a super species of spider. Cross bread between widow, recluse, cute looking innocent little spiders. They're watching your every move. Determining your behavior patterns, your habits, your weaknesses. One evening you're going to go to bed, tired, yearning for peaceful slumber, completely unaware of what is about to unfold. You'll wake, if you can call it that, completely wrapped up in a cocoon of spider web. Unbeknownst to you they all snuck into your bedroom... one at a time... out of sight. Waited for the perfect moment when you were tired and unlikely to be awakened by a small, seemingly harmless bite. A small one, yet so strong that you were rendered unconscious for hours. They will then lay their eggs under your skin and the babies will live on your fluids until they mature and crawl from your now dehydrated body... they will all crawl back outside and reinfest your expedition where they will lay in wait... for the next unsuspecting buyer of a low milage Expedition.

    which creature comes in an orange spawn pod, with distinct black and white markings on it, a symbol if you will,
    and the pod fixates itself using what seems to be an array of tentacles which used to be its face?

    funny thing, really
    how one creature can decide to totally change itself into something... different
