Spiders

For no good reason I am terrified of them. Who has to deal with them in your house. .My youngest boy sorts them out for me. I dont think he likes them either, but he likes to be my hero.

Living in Australia, we get lots of spiders, and some of them are poisonous. If they come into the house my husband leaves it to me to sort them out! He is such a wimp where spiders are concerned! I don't particularly like them either, but we have two small dogs in the house and I don't want them to get bitten, so it's me to the rescue!

This would be my worse nightmare. Is it true you have to shake shoes out before you put them on just incase?

Well, if I haven't worn a particular pair of shoes for a while, I always check them before I put them on - just incase! We have our house sprayed regularly, so it keeps most of them away. It's not that bad really, you learn to live with them!

Our cat takes care of most of the spiders that wander into our place. If she misses one, there is always the can of raid...if that doesn't work, the can is a very useful club when inverted, accompanied by saying in a firm voice "This is RAID!", while sending the offending spider to that great web in the sky.

I always feel guilty if I kill one. None of them are dangerous here. Even have friends who have a resident one under the skirting board.

A little hero to the rescue ;). Myself I sort of like spiders, they're quite interesting creatures I must say. Over time I have started to feel less comfortable with picking them up than in example since when I was a kid, but don't really find them scary. They just feel so weird when they walk over your hands and it can give a bit of a sting if it's a biting type of spider.

Just the thought makes me cringe.

I do not like them either. They make me feel yucky! Thanks to my oldest son who loves all kinds of insects and studies them intensely. I can just ask him to please take his friend outside and play? lol. Hes 8 years.
