I don’t mind them as long as they don’t walk over me......spiders do more good than harm, so apart from showing them the door if they are inside, I leave them be.

I used to dislike the large ones, until my children came along and were worse than me. Now I wouldn't mind if they were to walk on me. But slugs are a different matter. I get them in the house sometimes, and have never found out how they get in.

Spiders eat other bugs and are usually not concerned with people. I just let them be.

Spiders - have never really bothered me and I like them around to eat the mossies and other flying things. However, the area that i live in has a real problem with ... I call them jumpy spiders. If you go to touch them they jump away from you - they can really move and jump quite high relative to body size.

BUT and this is the thing - once they grow larger .. perhaps the size of a 5 cent piece, dime in USA and penny in UK the bite they can give you is a bit vicious. You can sometimes get a bad reaction to it and need to pop to pharmacy for help as the site of bite can swell and infect surrounding area. Once you have the cream though it all gets sorted in a couple of days ...usually .... but if you leave it there could be really serious problems.

I like them. I would never intentionally hurt one.
My husband is terrified of them.

While I am not a spider phobic, one must be leery of the spiders they may encounter, one most notably, the brown recluse.

Hate the ugly freaky hideous things. I know they eat dirty bugs etc but as long as they do it away from me that's fine but if they invade my space there going get splattered. Don't want to look at them don't have them in the house and I use cinnamon as a deterrent and it works fine.

I don't mind spiders. Not including Funnel Webs.
It's the webs I don't like, Specially the ones stretched across trees and pathways
