This is for Day 5 of a challenge 30 Days of Writing started by Nicky and Mike of We Work For Cheese in which several other bloggers and I are participating for the month of June. Today’s prompt was “Spiders”.
|This guy looks nasty!|
Well according to this site most spiders are supposedly good for our environment. They eat a lot of other insects that we do not want. We had a run in last fall when my hubby was bitten by a brown recluse which I talked about here. They are nasty little guys and you don't want to fool around with them.
I generally am not a huge fan of spiders but I am not super freaked out about them like my son is. Yes my 6'1 18 y/o son is a wuss when it comes to spiders and has to have his mommy kill them for him because he is so skeeved out by them! However I also am not the type to just let one live if it is in my house- if I see one I either suck it up with my vacuum (Take that spider!) or I kill' em with whatever is handy.
I once saw a video which said that over the course of our life time we unknowingly swallow several spiders in our sleep- I didn't particularly like that idea but *shrug* I guess you could consider it added protein.
So what is it about spiders that scares so many people? Is it the multiple legs? The creepiness of how they move? The webs they spin?
In looking for pics of spiderwebs I had to admit that their webs can really be a thing of beauty.
Look at the detail- how delicate they are, you have to respect something that can make something like these!
Does my new found respect mean I will change and set them free?
That I will find a more humane way to get rid of the ones in my house?
If I find them- I'll still kill'em- spiders are so creepy...
