I thought it would stop after Billy sprayed for bugs a few days ago, but it's been there every morning regardless.
I don't think the boys have noticed it. At least they haven't said anything to me about it. I considered mentioning it to them so they would get busy and get their toys picked up, but I thought that would probably have the opposite effect. They would refuse to even set toe in the room. So I've kept it to myself.
Last night after the boys went to bed, I picked up the few stray toys that hadn't made it to their proper places. Then I got out my big can of bug spray and went crazy spraying all over the carpet and rug where I had seen the spider's trail.
I haven't been in there yet this morning. I've been kind of scared of what I might find: either a dead tarantula or another silk trail. Maybe I've seen too many scary movies in my life (I'm not a fan of them by any means!), but I'm having fears of a horrendous spider hunting me down in the middle of the night, seeking revenge for trying to poison it.
I guess I better put on my brave face and peek around the corner. I've glanced that direction from the living room, but all appears well from that vantage point. But that's also not the main range of my uninvited guest.
Note: That is not my uninvited guest in the picture! It's one from the bug building at the zoo.
Update: I ventured in
