    I'm sitting here scratching a thousand imaginary itches.

    I cannot even tolerate a small harmless spider in my house...I will wake my SO up out of a deep slumber to have him kill them!

    I know that they are good, they eat bugs, yadda yadda yadda...

    HOWEVER, my fear/flight instinct takes over and they must die!

    I would literally have a heart attack if I lived there. I cannot deal with spiders...I almost had an anxiety attack just reading the article and then when I saw the picture up close, I almost started hyperventilating (literally, I am that petrified of them...) NO thanks!

    I had a solitary Huntsman spider in my house a few months ago. I still can't go into my bedroom without checking the corners of the ceiling.
    Have not looked at the link, but I did google huntsman spider. Thanks, but I would have been okay not googling that. *shimmy shudder dance'

    Lol! Yes, that would be unwise!

    Nothing like a spider big enough to HEAR when it runs across the floor, wall or ceiling.

    OK the sound effects part just make my scalp crawl and my whole body itch. Gah.

    But I would have seven thousand heart attacks if I walked out of my door and saw that. Grateful, for the lack of mosquitoes, but likely dead (see: heart attacks).

    My rational brain loves 'em, but it can't convince my flight instinct.
    Lol! That cracked me up, and yes, exactly! There would be no room for reasoning in my brain, sorry!

    Way cool!

    What a relief to the horses & humans, tho, to have allllll those nasty mosquitos consumed by their 8-legged Foes.

    GRRRRROOOOOOSSSSS!!! Not a spider fan at all. I second whomever said "break out the flame thrower" YUUUUUUU--UUUUCK!!!!

    Makes me glad to live in Canada where it's nice and cold and our creepy crawlies generally don't get that big!
