I'm ok with spiders that make a web in the corner minding their own business. But i'm terrified of the wolf and brown spiders. They're the ones i always catch crawling towards me like they're in attack mode.

No offense. But thank goodness I don't live there. And I have aracnipohia.

I've never heard of a spider like that. I don't really mind spiders though, but if they're inside the house. No thank you.

Here's the Brown Widow. Apparently there are other types as well, like the Red Widow....*shiver*

Life hit me over the head with a frying pan... and this place was giving me an anurism(sp)

But now that some things have settled... and I'm a mascosist(sp) I came back ;P

The southern US is just a plethora of cuddly, venemous creepy crawlies original.gif

Black Widows, Brown Widows, Brown Recluse, Fire Ants, etc. Not to mention the vipers and scorpions....

The only place 'worse off' is Australia...They get funnel orb spiders and the 4 most deadliest land snakes (Taipan, tiger, brown, fierce) and sea snakes (banded, blue). Not to mention kraits!

One of the many reasons at the top of my list for moving from Kentucky to Maine almost 7 yrs. ago. I wanted to be away from all those poisonous spiders & snakes. We still have spiders up here of course. I have my comp sitting in front of living room winder so in summer I can open window and smell nice ocean breeze so they love to harbour around the comp.  Of course I'm always looking around and seeing them crawling around. I gotta buy some spray I guess but luckily winter is around corner and that is only thing I love about the snow up here besides watching my daughter enjoy playing in it is that I don't have to put up with spiders. grin2.gif
And you would so never catch me in Australia. I couldn't even get into the water without being afraid of being stung by a box jellyfish long enough any jellyfish for that matter or I'd worry about the sharks and the scorpions and snakes. And all those spiders. EEEeeekkkk!!!!  A living nightmare. I bet it's beautiful with all that wildlife and such but I'll never wanna visit!!!

I like spider and snake pics. As FF said in Oz we have plenty of poisonous critters.

So you either get used to them or you go somewhere else.

Please dont post spider pictures. I have arachnophobia. ph34r.gif



Wait... you have arachnophobia...

And you clicked on a thread that WARNS that this thread is not suitible for people with it (nevermind that I've it to ;P)

Sorry babes... you lose.  If you're that afraid of spiders, stop looking at this thread.  It's like someone constently jabbing their arm with a knife while complaining that they don't like pain or blood.

It says if your arachnophobic and you live in missisippi. Not dont read this thread.



Yes.. and one who is smart might have picked up that it was a THREAD ON SPIDERS and not to click on it...

You're still at fault for comming into this thread and being exposed to the pictures that any one with an ounce of common sence would have figured out that would be posted.  Hells I knew right off the bat that those blokes from Aussiland would be tossing up images of their brand of huge ass spiders. (Though I am ashamed there's no Orbs...  For creepy icky things... Orbs are actually rather jewel like. XD )

Well, I guess you failed on both accounts.  Now if this thread offends you so... STOP LOOKING AT IT!  Walk away...  just walk away!

We have quite a few nasty spiders here in Georgia. I avoid them all just to be sure.  Black widows, Brown recluse, and more that have less of a reputation, but are just as poisonious.

ohmy.gif  i hate spiders, i never used to be scared of them until one night when i was 14 [im 30 now] i was in bed and something woke me, i could feel something tickling my face, i switched my light on and there, hanging from my hair was this horrible brown spider, i flicked it away with my hand and screamed the house down.

ever since then i am scared stiff of spiders, although i dont like killing them - i get my partner to put them outside.
