Thank you?

for helping me get rid of that spider! lol.
I wish i was brave enough to let it go outside ...but i cant do it. I've had nightmares about spiders sense before i can remember. And although i've gotten a lot better (Daddy Long Legs are easy to catch and let outside) I still have many irrational fears about them. ...that's why i'm still up actually. i'm afraid to go to sleep. ...even though i killed it, there could be more. lol
anyways. saying thanks for all your ideas. AND i'm gonna TRY to get some rest now. goodnight ladies.

  • Sometimes, the name daddy longlegs is used for another group of arachnids, the spiders of the family Pholcidae. These spiders are also called cellar spiders.

    Cellar spiders do have venom glands. However, there is no scientific evidence whatsoever to confirm that their venom can harm a human being. Not a single documented case exists of a person being bitten by one and having an adverse reaction.

    Pholcid spiders do have short fangs, but not any shorter than other spiders that have been known to bite humans. The cellar spider's fangs are similar in structure to those of a brown recluse spider, which we know can and does bite humans. Again, there is no evidence or proof to the claim that their fangs are too short to bite a person.

  • Daddy long legs are actual the most poisonous spider in North America. Their teefies are just too small. Isn't that crazy??

  • hahaha I did the same thing before I posted that they were poisonous. I just like the idea and won't put facts in my way of spreading myths.
