    I hate spiders. Saw the new SpiderMan movie last weekend though. It was really good.

    I think I have a love/hate relationship with them.. I mainly avoid them since I have trouble identifying harmless ones from ones that do really hurt humans. Anything all brown in color, or all black I tend to destroy on sight. Small jumping spiders I will shoo away if they're just in the house, and I'll kill them if they're in my room. That's a no-animal territory. I always tell my dog, "See that? Thats why you don't come in here." I like daddy long legs, but they make a huge mess with so much webbing. Anything too small isn't a bother. The small black ones that are common to Texas that hide in firewood I still cannot identify as harmless or not, so I kill them on sight too.

    Not quite a real spider but I feel it's still relevant .

    Most in the US are relatively harmless. There are only a few - Black Widow, Brown Recluse, and Hobo spider come to mind - and really the Black Widow is the main one as they inject a lot of venom. Brown Recluse can cause severe reactions but they aren't aggressive and most of their bites are either dry or have low venom.

    The horror stories of Brown Recluse bites that eat giant holes in people are very exceptional. Most bites do not result in that.

    However, if you live with small children, elderly, or have a weak immune system, it's probably better to be safe than sorry and go ahead and squish the brown or black spiders that you find in your house. Chances of actually being bitten are very low, and getting a bad bite is even lower still, but it's bad enough that you don't want to risk it if you aren't sure.

    Haha, it's crazy when they do that.

    And now some interesting facts about daddy longlegs:
    1. There's a few kinds, and one kind, the Harvestman, is not actually a spider.

    2. The myth that Harvestmen are the most venomous spider but can't bite humans is untrue - they aren't venomous at all, and do not have fangs. It is true that their mouth parts are too weak to bite humans, though.

    3. The Pholcid spiders, otherwise known as Cellar Spiders, are actually spiders. These are the ones that make the crazy random webs and they are often called daddy longlegs as well. Interestingly, their web is not sticky, and it only catches prey by its random and tangled construction. Pholcids can bite humans rarely, but their venom is simply not toxic on humans.
