Mostly indifference. I've found one crawling over my arm a few times and just flicked it off.

Of course those are the small thread-legs ones that aren't very scary. I'd probably be scared out of my wits if I had a tarantula near my foot or something.

I have an irrational aversion to them. Especially if I see one chilling on a wall, continue what I'm doing and then glance back up and it's gone.

I'm very fond of spiders. I refuse to kill them under almost any circumstance because they are so beneficial to humans.

Just think of all the good that little fella is trying to do for you. He eats all the bugs he can find in your place and all he asks is you don't squish him.

I had a few wolf spiders living in my old apartment years ago. It was a filthy apartment, granted, but I never touched any of those spiders. One of them was the size of a silver dollar in the body and that little SOB crawled over me a few times when I was laying on the floor watching TV. A little creepy but looking at the size of it I realized..he'd eaten a LOT of bugs in my apartment.

Spider trivia: Female tarantulas can, and often do, live over 20 years. Males live 1-3 years. How fair is that?

Yeah, I know it's irrational as none of them in this country are poisonous and they're great at keeping other pests at bay.

That said, I'm still not a fan. Tiny ones don't phase me, but those big hairy fuckers need to be dealt with before I'm able to relax or do anything else.

LOL. The really funny thing about that is the big hairy ones aren't very dangerous, except for the Poecilotheria breeds (I'll cop to looking in WIKI to see how that was spelled), and they just make you really sick. The pretty tarantulas you see in the old Ron Ely Tarzan TV series, and in "The Mummy Returns" are called Mexican RedKnee Taratulas. They look fierce as hell, but they are sweethearts. That's one of the reasons they are so popular in movies, because they are docile and not dangerous, but they sure look scary.

You do have a venomous spider in Briton, the European house spider. The venom is medicinally significant, about on par with a hobo spider. But they aren't aggressive.

Not fair at all

I react by thinking "oh look a spider". If it's in my bedroom I will move it outside or in a different room. Otherwise I just ignore them.
I have nothing important to say

Outside: indifferent or interested

Meh I don't pay much attention to them.

We have deadly brown recluse spiders here so I kill every one I see because I can't tell the damn difference

I don't really mind them

I don't mind your common British spiders whatever size the are.The can't do you any harm and generally don't do anything.If I came across an escaped pet tarantula I would probably crap myself but I would probably try and capture rather than kill it.
#25
I don't mind em. I mean, if one crawls on me it might startle me a little and I'd flick it off, but that's about it. If I see one in the house sometimes I kill it and sometimes I'll just ignore it depending on where it is and if it looks like it might be poisonous. I'm too lazy and don't care enough to relocate one. It's either getting killed or left alone.

second.

I love spiders they're like lil house cleaners for bugs that I don't like as much. I like all bugs except crane flies, locusts, and cockroaches. Wasps I kinda dislike a lil but not a whole lot.
If there is a God, it's me.

I don't get why people in this county (U.S) have such a weird fear of spiders...bro, its a fucking bug. Get over it. They don't do anything if you leave them alone.

Now while this may be approaching pot/kettle territory...I SEVERELY dislike wasps. Bees I don't mind, but wasps need to be extinct.

On the topic of wasps..yeah, wasps suck. Bees are cool, but you have to be careful around them.

spiders can get to fuck

unless it's a cellar spider chilling in the top corner minding it's own business

any other spider than cellar spider's can get to fuck though

I hate them because I always seem to walk face-first into their webs and then freak out trying to get it off me and checking my hair/clothes for spiders
