Are you afraid of spiders?
No. I usually put them outside when I find one in the house. Wolf spiders are fairly difficult to catch.
Paralyzing, irrational, idiotic fear. Yes. My heart beats faster and I hyperventilate. Spiders. Omg!
Irrational fear, no. Hate them, yes!
I have a natural fear if spiders, not one that is way out of control.
Not generally but I know in Texas spiders kill more people than snakes.
I know what a black widow looks like but I wouldn't know a brown recluse if I saw one.
