Re: Are you afraid of spiders?

I'm not afraid of spiders.  On the other hand I hate snakes ... any size, any color, any kind, etc.

Re: Are you afraid of spiders?

Don't much like them but there are other creepy crawly things that scare me more.

No because I had a teacher that said they eat other pest bugs

Re: Are you afraid of spiders?

I am not afraid of spiders but if they or ANY insect enters my home, they are dead.  I can't relax until I get them.   I am, however, afraid of mice.  If I were to ever see one in my home, off to a hotel I go and hubby can and better deal with it.

Re: Are you afraid of spiders?

Yes, I am!!!  Especially the ones that jump!!!  If possible, and DH is around, I get him to off them.  If he is not handy, I grit my teeth and hold my breath and do it.  Praying all the while that I have a good aim!  I just wish all of that kind of stuff would just stay outside.  Stay outside - don't bother me and I won't bother you!!!!

Re: Are you afraid of spiders?

Nope! If it's ugly and freaks me out, I call for my husband. Mostly 99% of the time, I just stomp the little sucker out.

Sending joy, prayers, love and gentle hugs to all who need them this holiday season.

Re: Are you afraid of spiders?

 

Are females "programmed" to be afraid of spiders?   Sometimes I see women react and think it must be an act ... or something.   

 

I don't find spiders particularly bothersome, but my kitty wishes we had MORE of them.   LOL

No it's not an "act". It is a real fear that started when I was a child and saw my mom almost die from a severe allergic reaction after being bit by a spider.

I hate spiders-they creep me out-also clowns.
