    Little Bastards!

    I got bit by some kind of spider about 10 months ago. I think I got bit by what they call a hobo spider in Utah. It started out with a fever and swelling of my hands and feet. Then I noticed a huge bit on my hip. Soon after I started itchy everywhere. I still do. I have had to...

    Baby Wolf Spiders

    Okay I hate the eight legged creeps. One time this big baby wolf spider got into my house. I was home alone. I saw it run in, then it disappeared. I ran to the kitchen, grabbed the biggest steak knife I could find, and retreated to my bedroom. I was freaking out.

    Spiders! Yikes!

    OK I can't help it.  Spiders are gross-looking with strange round centers and furry six legs.  And any of them could bite, you just never know what ones will!  I am not prejudice either... I hate all spiders equally and their webs!  I don't go out of my way to...

    Just Spider-rific!

    Okay, you can call me crazy here and that's fine but spiders like me. I am fearful of them and I don't even have to see them but they will come up, no doubt hoping for a bite. Now I know this is probably funny but I have been cornered by a spider a few yrs back. It was crazy, I...

    I don't fear most animals. Snakes, mice, potato bugs, possums... I have no problem with them. In fact, I'm actually very fond of them. But spiders... eesh. I'm not so fond of them. I'm not certain why. I've just always been afraid of them. It used to be that I was terrified of...

    Glad I Don't Remember

    For some it's snakes, for others it's siders. But I never really understood why it had to have eight legs and fur for me to be petrified with fear until my mother related this story to me. I was 2 years old and my mother used to buy a box of bananas from the grocery store in...

    I Don't Dislike Spiders, But......

    Australia has an abundance of toxic, venomous and downright dangerous fauna. A recent survey of tourists found the the most feared creature is the Huntsman spider. The Huntsman is quite a large spider, with a body up to 30mm and a span the size of a mans hand. They are long...

    Car Spider

    There was one that made a web on my drivers side mirror on my car this morning.  I didn't have anything to knock it down with so I just took off and got on the freeway.  The little bastard hid between the mirror and the casing and never fell off.  Amazing how well...

    I have never liked spiders.  I am not sure why, but I've had this fear for the longest time.  Even looking at the word, or pictures, it makes me cringe.  I have gotten a little bit better, to where I don't cry like a little girl when I see one.  I still try to...

    I Love, I Love, I Love Spiders

    Look at their webs, and how they create everything - they are so very complex and unusual. Do you think it is so easy to coordinate 8 legs also? Without errors? Spiders are very small, but maybe smarter than most of the people who can never multitask or similar. They are very...

    I Hate Spiders!

     I don't know why exactly, but spiders completely freak me out. Nothing else really bothers me. I don't mind snakes or anything else, just ******* spiders. I have my wife kill them, because they make me nauseous.
