Oh man; I have been to Kihei, Maui 5 times now and this last time in July 2011 we were greeted by a cane spider in our condo! This is the first time we've had a ground floor condo so I don't know if this is the reason. It wasn't fun, he is in cane spider heaven. These things move extremely fast and are ugly. I spoke with several locals who all seemed to tell a different story; one said they bite, one said they don't bite (either way the heart attack will get me!); all in all they are huge; someone told me they charge at you others say yes they charge at you but then run away. I don't know what to believe but I am a terrible arachnophobe, for the duration of my stay I had to double check everything for cane spiders and stinging centipedes not to mention scorpions! I still love Maui and the people! Oh and one person told me the centipedes crawl up your bedskirt sometimes and to check the bed before entering!
