Would you freak out if a tiny spider climbed on you?

I was just sitting here typing when all of a sudden I felt a small tickle on my head.
I reach over to give my self alittle scratch that is when I noticed this itty bitty spider I just shook it off my hand slowly.

Do little spiders bite?

The other day I found a spider the size of a dime (including the legs length) I personally don't like to kill spiders I heard they are good luck for the home, anyway I just grabbed my long handle dust pan and a broom and took outside.
It is funny because when you see one it looks as though they are looking at you.

  • Ewwww. Yes! Spiders of any size scare me silly. I try not to kill them. I try to carry them outside. I'm not always successful- sometimes too startled. I believe that spider of any size will bite. We finally had to call an exterminator when we had an infestation of wolf spiders. They are huge- the size of a small mouse. Inside the house and out. * shudder *

  • I don't freak out (but man it's a sight to watch my sister!), but I don't like them, and I will squash them the little buggers. I know they're good and all, but they look icky and I get the crawly feeling all over when I see them. I just prefer them gone. Now big spiders are another matter!!

  • I hate spiders! all spiders! I don't care how big or little they are!!! I freak out!

    all spiders can bite, it's just a matter of if you will feel it or not.

    Spiders outside get to live as long they stay away from me... spiders inside DIE!

  • I freak if a spider gets on me! I just had to rub my head from you saying there was one on YOU! I hate spiders and have just recently been able to kill small ones on my own instead of screeching like there was a tarantula over every spider! The other day there was one on the floor in my bedroom, I woke hubby up to get out of bed so I could shake out the blanket incase it's little buddy had climbed up into my bed! They are my one super girly fear!

  • I hate spiders! You're lucky if they only bite you and don't crawl in your mouth when you are sleeping-experts figure that a human swallows about 9-10 spiders a year. YUMMY, huh?

    So just be thankful they are on your leg and not in your mouth, JMO!

  • Actually, it's an urban legend that we swallow spiders while we sleep.  http://www.snopes.com/science/stats/spiders.asp


    I am not a fan of spiders in the house, but I rarely kill them...unless they're huge. I will scoop them up on a piece of paper and deposit them outside.
