1. Sparkly spiders!

I read somewhere that no matter where you are in the world you're no more than 6' away from a spider (maybe not in Antarctica).

3. I am so tempted to watch.

But I just can't. I'm the one who takes the spiders out of the house so they can live and not bother us. If I develop a fear, things could get ugly fast (and deadly to the innocent spiders).

PS. Black Widows are not given the same courtesy. Brown Recluse? I have never seen one but would probably run out of the house screaming if I did.

4. We call these "dock spiders" when we see em in our kayaks...about 3-4" across and usually

quite unwilling to get brushed out of the boat... (they don't seem to like swimming) Never been bitten by them, but they can be unnerving when they crawl out of the bow and look at you.

Actually, with a better light you can often see more reflections from the eight eyes at night.

I just try to think of them as a friendly tiny Aragog instead of the menacing Shelob.

6. All those spiders are probably eating things worse than spiders.

I generally leave spiders alone, even in the house, except for big spiders like tarantulas and huntsmen spiders; I put those outside.

I've only seen black widows in our garage, I kill those. My brother got bit by a black widow when he was a kid and lost a chunk of flesh about the size of a quarter. He's still got the scar. After that we'd keep black widows in jars and feed them flies. (Me and my siblings were odd feral children.)

It seems to me cockroaches, aggressive ants, and silverfish don't show up until the exterminator has made it safe for them.

The only insects we have trouble with are fleas. Some of the fleas our dogs pick up while walking are very resistant to most insecticides. Years ago Frontline would work for three months. No longer.

8. Yeah I agree with you on spiders but luckily in the PNW we don't have the ones you mentioned lol

And you're right about the flea problem. It also applies to lice as well.
