are you for or anti spiders? - Page 2

post #31 of 52
Spiders are the creepist things on earth as far as I am concerned.
However spiders in my household don't stand a chance against Sassy the great and mighty spider killer.
His favorite are dandy long legs whom he feels make a nice light snack.

Yuck

Persi is for spiders! He loves to chase them around and knock them on their back, then knock them back over so they can run and then knock them over again....etc.

I used to be anti-spider (panic attacks) until I got my tarantula.
I can now co-exist with them if they stay off of me and they are not toxic species.
The cats say differently though, as does my brave bug hunting dog

You mean these things?? NAH I dont like them, but I think I would rather find them in my bed or shower or toilet than a snake!! YUCK'O!!

I hate spiders, though I feel a bit of a wuss considering I live in the UK, where the biggest spiders we have are not really that big, and certainly not on par with tarantulas.

Any spider I see in my room will die, any others will probably just be put outside or ignored (if they're already outside)

Spiders don't scare me that much, unless they're crawling on my neck or something.
I don't mind snakes or bats or anything like that either.
The only time spiders or snakes scare me is when I think they could or are going to hurt me or the animals.

Ditto here! It runs in the family. My mother kept lizards for pets when she was a little girl and I did too!

I love all of them. They are here for a reason and all fit into nature's plan. At least that's my theory. I've never been afraid of them. Not sure why so many people are and why is it usually women?

I hate spiders. We get a ton in our basement even though it's finished. I usually go around once a week with the dust buster and clean house of them

I HATE spiders!! My father and I are alike in this feeling. We are so scared of them that we actually dream of them... how crazy is that?! My younger sister tells me that I have a different squeal for when I am encountering a spider. I used to get my mom to kill them all, then it was my bf, and now that I am single I have to fend for myself. But I live on the 4th floor and so am hoping that I am relatively safe... no one please destroy my safe haven ha ha!

Stanley just plays with them... he doesn't kill them just imobilizes them. I have no pity.

If they aren't in the house then that's fine, once they enter my home they are on my territory and they will find themselves dead.

For me it's kind of a long story. I used to be absolutely terrified of them. Then at the end of grade 2, my teacher's son came to visit us and he has a pet tarantula. When I first saw it, I started to shake I was so scared and nervous. He let everyone hold it and when it got to me I nervously put my hand out and let it crawl onto my arm. I was so sure it was going to bite me because I was shaking so much but it didn't. After than I developed a greater respect for spiders and I considered working with them as a career. I studied them for about 8 years and learned a lot about them.

Now I'm only afraid of one spider in the world: the funnel web spider. They are more scary to me than anything else in the world. They are about the size of the palm of your hand, extremely aggressive, fast, and very strong. Not to mention that they are extremely poisonous and their fangs are very big and can easily bite through your toenail.

Other than large, dangerous species like the funnel web, I like spiders because they help get rid of those pesky mosquitoes.
