My 6-year-old is like that too. I'm terrified of spiders, so when I see one, I call her to take care of it. She calls me a wimp all the time... I'm okay with it, as long as she's still killing the little bastards.

If she can do that with her bare hands, imagine a butter knife. Oh, and 54 - Reminds me of when I killed my first spider when I was six. It was missing two legs.

#38: Unless it's a common jumping spider or a trap-door spider (which I love playing with), any spider I see is a dead spider. I've come into contact with brown recluses and black widows. I've had my hand and fingers less than two inches from a black widow without knowing it, and it was only AFTER I had killed it that I saw the red hourglass.

38, it's called a phobia. You can throw all the facts around that you want, but I'm still going to avoid those things every way that I can and not give a fuck what anyone says.

There are actually only two poisonous spiders in the us(native), black widow and brown recluse. Correction for those who have nothing better to do than poke holes in other's comments: all spiders are poisonous. But those are the two truly harmful to humans.

67-I am pretty sure most people are not afraid due to the number of poisonous species but rather they are afraid because of the number of those spiders (which is greater than two). Also, the fact that most of us cannot instantly identify the kind of spider does not help.

Try live in Australia we have the worlds most deadliest everything. Spiders - Sydney Funnel Web, Mouse eating spider, normal funnel web, red back, and more. Snakes - taipan, king brown, red belly black, one that lives in the ocean, brown snake Sea creatures - box jellyfish, blue ring octopus, stonefish.

Okay, first of all, I never said not to kill the spider. Obviously it's better to let it live if you can, but it's not a big deal if you can't. If it's a phobia, it's a phobia. Fine. But don't try to use "oh, it's not an irrational fear because spiders are poisonous" as an excuse. I thought that was obvious from my last sentences. Seriously, it's like you guys don't even read what's written before you respond. :/

#67, seeing as we're being pedantic now, technically there are two families of spiders that lack venom glands. But seriously, many spiders can't even penetrate human skin. Poisonous in the sense of "capable of killing or inflicting injury"? I think not.

I'd like to put my two cents in, as my cousin works at a pick n save (grocery store), he works the produce section and with the loads of fruit he comes across plenty of black widows. He catches them and destroys them properly so when you buy your fruit your life shall go on another day.
