  1. Spider more freaked out to be in Canada no doubt.

    • Hardly think so we don’t hear or see these things out in Canada it’s a lot colder up here last thing Canadians would generally expect finding a venomous spider in their food alive or shopping around it

    These are not rare in Western Canada at all. Come to B.C., the Okanagan and North Thompson…they are eveywhere!

    I live in Western Canada – BC and can go in my garage and prob find a couple of those buggers. Not rare at all around here. Doubt they are very dangerous either.

  10. I found a rat trap in the bread section behind the bread. Have a look, I bet you’ll find one. Where there’s rats, there’s rat poop


  12. They are not rare in southern Ontario, seen many in the shed
