No I’m really not keen on spiders at all, I will cover any I see with a jar or something til someone comes home and takes it outside....or I will phone someone to come home to do it, but never ever kill one.

There’s a saying I was brought up with....

If you want to live and thrive let your spider stay alive, smile.png

I’ve known that as long as I can remember, lol

Not an Arachnophobe / Spider Phobic, here in the U.K our spiders are non poisonous
I have a few small house spiders, i leave them alone until they grow
Now, before i write the next part, please understand it is all part of the eco system, spiders are bird feed, so when they get big they get humanely removed from the house into the garden
I don't feel good the spider got murdered
Happy to see/hear the birds are getting fed

I have no issues with spiders just snakes here with me. With the livestock and dogs bitten and lots of people also here, also now is breeding time and we usually see a lot of them mostly coral, cotton mouths, copperheads and a few rattlers, timber rattlers mostly around here not diamond backs. I have been bitten by a brown recluse spider before and still have the hole in my leg from it. I saw a cotton mouth today crossing the road to town that had been ran over. Almost a daily happening this time of year.

Probably did suffer from arachnophobia as a child, but grew out of it a long time ago. Not bothered by them these days.

Only 2 spiders get a brake from me that is the grand daddy long legs and the tarantula. If they are close to the house, I will move them some place else. The rest get killed.

We have poisonous spiders here and plenty of them, Brown Recluse, Black widow, Tarantula, Jumping Spider, wolf spider. If I bother to catch one it goes to the fire ant hill.

I had a stand off with a longlegged spider in my shower yesterday and I will say the spider unfortunately did not win.

I am now used to my twice a year tropical spider bite that comes with a three weeks anti biotics and steroids treatment and itches like hell.....

But not phobic..

The only phoby I have is rats!
Now you'd have me dancing and screaming and running all over the place.:laugh:

Years ago my brother was driving in west Texas and came upon a herd of migrating tralanchalas...he caught one, put it in a box and brought it home. Well it escaped and was nowhere to be found. It creeped me out big time...especially trying to sleep. Fortunately about 2 days later he saw it just strolling across living room floor and caught it. Let's just say it had an impact. I'd kiss a snake on the lips before I'd handle any kind of hairy spider.
