Spiders are one of the most feared and cursed creatures on earth. No one knows exactly why we love to hate spiders, as we do. Arachnophobia is real, and there are people who would rather jump off a cliff than to take on the spider. But in reality, most spiders are harmless. There are a few spiders, such as the brown recluse and the black widow which can cause serious damage if they bite.
Most spiders bite only when threatened, and their bites are generally less irritating than a fly or a mosquito bite. As irrational as it seems, the spider fear still exists. Fortunately, you can get rid of spiders which is relatively easy if they scare bajeebers out of you.
Spiders like to eat other bugs and insects. They catch them in the webs. Spiders have poor eyesight, but a great sense of vibration. When they feel that they are helpless victims struggled to free themselves, spiders will go down the web and feed. You can make your home a less hospitable for spiders at the expense of other insects that live there.
