You people are amazing! I love how you talk about spiders. I personally am VERY afraid of even small spiders. But I am respectful of them and never kill them. If they are small enough I just leave them to run around in the house, but if they are real big I'll move them outside...tho I look pretty silly doing so because I'm way too afraid to touch them. I usually trap them under a container then slide a piece of paper under it, then pick it up and put it into a bowl for safe transfer outside. If it's winter though, well, they are lucky and get to stay inside. I'll just hide on my bed from them. (I'm from Canada btw)

This is indeed one of the funniest and yet most educational threads in this section of the forum!

Although, here in Jersey we have a small brown spider that is not to be taken lightly. It bites and can make one very sick if left unattended. My nephew is recovering from a serious staff infection as a result of a bite from one of these little guys ... or gals!

When I see all the mossies caught by spider webs.. I don't mind them as long as they keep away from me. If they come close, I relocate. A Scottish friend of mine asked me to kill one that was not in the way and I told here I did, but I moved ol Hugo to a new locale. Yup I named him Hugo and he did well in his new spot.. eating mossies. Funny thing is this friend was highly allergic to mossie bites.. so you would think she'd get over her irrational fear.
