When you look in spider webs, have you noticed how little amount of flies are in there? It is mostly moths and ladybirds, which are needed.

I hate spiders but i think we need them,
the spiders eat insects bothering us C: (Some weeks ago a ton of insects was bothering me but a spider eat them C:) and if the spiders extinct or something like that,there would be a ton of insects.

There would be more insects if there were no spiders, but there are still many creatures that eat them, like bats, birds, fish, lizards.

It's just an example from all over the world. Birds are one of the biggest eaters of insects, fish too.

I just went camping and while I was animating on the computer, a spider came off my hat O.O I thought I got bit, so I killed the spider. And then I went to wikipedia to go search both of the dangerous spiders in Texas, so I could find a picture. I was glad to say I did not find a brown recluse or a black widow hiding on my hat, but I want to know what type of spider it was. It was brown, with little black streaks. It was about the size of a quarter. What do you think it was? I have no idea.

I eat danger for breakfast!
Actually, I don’t. I prefer cereal.

I have no idea, but if you wern't affected by it, then it was probably not poisonous.
everything out of the ordinary is considered weird, i try to stay clear of the eathlings and their fears

Maybe I don't like spiders because they move too quickly in the complete opposite direction that you think they are going to go. Tarantula's tend to move a little slower than your average house spider, maybe this is why people are afraid of spiders?

I think spiders are really good because they catch the bugs that we do not like. My mom always tries to kill spiders, but I try to save them if the weather outside is warm. If the weather is cold, I leave spiders inside the house. They have never done anything wrong to me.
