    Default Spiders in YOUR HOUSE

    *shudder*

    A huge stripey fat spider is right outside the window where I am sitting typing this; it's eating its prey. Or swirling it. Whatever. Now I can't come back into this room once I leave. I'm too scared.
    Do you sometimes get too freaked out in your own house, paranoid that there's a spider somewhere? Sometimes if I see one in my room and it vanished, I do not sleep that night. Argh! It moved! Help!

    Oh sweetie, I feel your pain. I'm OK with the little bastards when they're minding their own business outside, but if there happens to be a spider in my room that I can't get rid of, I won't sleep a wink that night. I know it's silly, but they just freak me the hell out.
    Is your eight-legged friend still there, Allie? Urgh, now I'm all itchy!

    There's glass between us! I feel safe, oddly curious as well.
    I've always wondered about a human's natural fear of spiders.

    I'm not afraid of anything...snakes, bugs, lizards, etc...but spiders give me shivers down my spine.

    We get lots of funky ones out here in California. In the early fall, they make these webs across all of the trees and just hang there. I can't walk along paths or anything, it's awful. They are ugly and brown.

    Still, I don't kill them. I just leave them alone. Even my boyfriend is freaked out by spiders.

    if we didn't have spiders we'd be knee deep in bugs. For real.

    Still, they're the vampires of the insect world. Blech.

    Reminds me. I was posting on this very board a long time ago, when I went into the kitchen & saw a tarantula scurrying on the floor.

    k, the worst we have here are house centipedes or house spiders.

    Years ago on a HOT night I'm laying in bed.. no covers, no jammies, on my stomach.. and almost asleep when I feel a lil.. something run across my back.. I SPRUNG up and flipped the light on..and saw a BIG ASS spider scurry off the bed. I looked high and low to find it.. didn't..needless to say I didn't sleep in that room that night.

    I scared the shit out my husband the other day when I shrieked after seeing a spider run across my desk. Hubs was sitting next to me and we were both quietly working away when I suddenly screamed...practically in his ear. Hehe, oops!

    I swear that spider just APPEARED out of nowhere. It took me by surprise.

    I'm not scared of spiders. I went to Australia a few years back and nearly walked into a Golden Orb web and spider in some rainforest bit in Cairns. Those are BIG Fuckers! Makes the sad-sack small spiders we get here rather tame in comparison.

    And they do a good job getting rid of flies, who I find infinitely more irritating!

    We get nasty Black Widows out here quite a bit. They are a bit scary.

    I'm not afraid of spiders. I'm pretty sure it's a learned behavior. Your parent (or someone close to you) screams when they see one, you observe their behavior and suddenly see it as a threat. Babies will willingly pick up anything and put it in their mouths, regardless of pincers, teeth or claws , with absolutely no "natural fear."

    I heard that there is always a spider at least three feet away from you at all times. But I saw it on CSI so maybe it's not true. I have daddylonglegs everywhere. I vacuum the poor suckers right up yet they keep coming back!
