I live in Canada so I don't come up close with things like tarantulas and I've never heard of most of those you've mentioned except golden orb spiders and daddy long legs. Its the little red ones that don't scare me although surprisingly they are the ones that actually bite you -_-'

generally the bigger the spider is or the longer the legs the more it scares me. If its small I usually just flick it out of my way or leave it where it is. I mostly only see those ones outside though. Its the big ones that I end up seeing in my house, in the corners of my bathroom just hanging there or scuttling across the floor. sometimes I just let it go. If it disappears in a day I won't care. As long as I don't see it it's fine, I could care less. But when its just sitting in the corner day after day stinking me out...I get rid of it. Or rather my mom does.

Spiders are so cute! If you look at them up close they have these big shiny eyes and they are all fluffy! The eat annoying bugs like mosquitoes and flies. Imagine where we would be without spiders! Before you kill something that is ACTUALLY helping you think about the poor thing first!

When I was little I used to be big into the outdoors and I'd go right up to spiders and bugs and pick them up. I'm not sure what happened but now that I'm older I'm actually kind of scared of them. Actually I'm terrified. If I see one in the house I have someone kill it for me (as I'm too scared to do it myself). I wouldn't mind leaving them be and I understand the whole "they do us a favor" thing but if I leave it be I get paranoid about where it could possibly be. So we kill it. Though when outdoors I leave them be and just carry on my way. It's only when the sneak inside do I try and get rid of them.

Spiders are cool because they help keep the bug population down like bats and birds. :mrgreen:

I think spiders are very interesting, but for some reason I could hold a Tarantula but a house spider terrifies me! any way, i wouldn't kill a spider, they have as much right to live as we do! :wink:

The only bugs that really annoy me are mosquitos. And I"d rather have dragonflies to take care of that than spiders.

I wouldn't agree spiders have every much right to live as we do. Human life is far more valuable than a spider's.

I do agree that mosquitoes are annoying. But spiders do have the same rights on living... they are more scared of us. Just hearing someone say spider dont have the same right hurts me. Can you see the world without spider... It would be horrid. i cant see the world without them. I held spiders but they were daddy long legs and a country spider... Now I will simmer down... :cry: :cry:

I have spider phobia or whatever its called, so it freaks me out just to be in the same room as one. So to me I'd prefer no spiders in the world...unless they're super tiny. I don't mind the little red ones or the tiny ones you find outside but the big honking ones that find their way into my house-well I could do without them.

I'd prefer dragonflies, because they eat mosquitos. I'd prefer dragonflies over spiders any day.

I have a huge fear of spiders, or really anything the creeps or crawls. Insects in general frighten me. If there is a spider in the room I refuse to stay in that room, unless of course the spider is killed. Otherwise I would begin to get paranoid about where the spider could be.

I've had several instances where I looked up to see a spider crawling along the couch less then a foot away from me - and it's always the bigger ones when that happens. >.> Lucky me. I hate having arachnophobia (fear of spiders)

I really hate spiders in general. I would kill it and not feel a thing, because I have a phobia of them. There are several of them in my laundry room that have webs, and theres many bugs in those webs, so I dont care for them. If theres a spider in my living room, I'll freak out and smash it-And feel relief! Yeah, they do get rid of bugs, and THEY DO BITE. I get spider bites when I sleep. They ITCH. And BURN. I think they are nasty, ugly, freakazoids!

I have had a friend who got bit by a spider before, though I never have been bitten myself. No spider has really lasted long enough in my house for it to do so. ^^ I'm sure they'd be uncomfortable to deal with though.

I'm not a fan of spiders, but I'll remain calm only if they are small and aren't too close. I was never bitten by one, thankfully. But I've killed enough plenty of times. Because every time I am near one, they act like they are about to jump on me. So I defend myself. But I think spiders are intersting, for being weird little eight-legged things.

I kill them suckers even if it's cruel. ^^ Yeah I hate spiders, and I'm terrified of them. If they find their way in my house, they're good as dead.

Spiders do have a right to live - but it doesn't change that I'm totally scared of them. Spiders. They creep me out. Now that I've moved to Mexico, I've seen REAL spiders, and.. I do not think they are very.. pretty or whatnot.. I just dislike them, and I can't help that.
