And I'm Arachnophobic. Since it' Summer I'm seeing more and more spiders infest my room. They set up their little homes in some convenient and some not so convenient locations. Typically, if they set up their homes in areas I frequent regularly and need access to I'll tend to shoo them off (not kill). However, if they build a home up in the corner or in an area I hardly go / touch then I just leave them be. Is that strange? When I was younger my thought process was "Ah, spider, they're going to eat me and crawl into my mouth when I'm sleeping! EEK!!" Now, while I still have that sneaky suspicion that they'll still try to crawl into my mouth while I'm sleeping I came to peace with that. Hopefully, they just don't lay eggs or something MORE devious. -- Err..., now that I'm older I don't feel threaten by these spiders anymore. I feel as if they are living beings just searching for a home to crash in for awhile, like their summer getaway. My thought process is so silly when it comes to spiders that I believe the fear is finally gone. Heck, I'm sitting next to one right now and I don't have a care in the world about it. It actually looks quite cute considering the fear is finally gone. So, do you let spiders live with you? Do you kill or shoo them away? What do you do to Mr./Mrs./Miss Spider when they invade your home?
