Spiders
Facts and myths about your favorite
roommate: spiderbro.
Some Facts
Spiders are not poisonous (harmful to eat, breathe,
or touch).
However, every spider is venomous (injects venom
through bite or sting), as this is how they break
down their food. Less than IX of spider species are
dangerous to humans.
Pet spiders have the ability to recognize their
owners.
Baby spiders are called spiderlings.
Spiders that live inside houses are often a different
species from spiders that live outside. Many indoor
species cannot survive outdoors. .',
Common Myth
The has the most potent venom
of all spiders, but its fangs can' t pierce human skin.
False
mares why,)
There are three species that can be termed Daddy-
and none of these species are remotely
dangerous. Only one of these species is a spider.
The Harvestman
A harmless arachnid related to spiders.
The harvestman is not venomous at all. It does not
spin webs or have silk glands. There are no venom
glands in their chelicerae (fangs). Instead, the
chelicerae are use more like grasping claws. Its
only defense is excreting a fluid.
True spiders, but harmless to humans.
Cellar spiders are , but they are
virtually harmless. They are true spiders, known
for building cobwebs in high corners of showers
or cellars). Like all spiders, cellar spiders are
venomous, but their bite causes little more than
a mild, burning sensation
These are harmless insects.
mosquito hawk in some areas. Despite the
name, they do not eat mosquitos or bite
humans. They feed on nectar if they feed at all.
In their adult stage, they live only to mate, then

Myth: Humans swallow on average 2 spiders a year.
FALSE
In 1993, Lisa Holst of PC Professional wrote about the absurd
things people will believe from their . She sent a
Joke email containing a list of ridiculous facts as an example.
ironically, the circulation this madeout tact actually spurred
this popular belief.
Myth: Spiders often bits people in the night.
FALSE
The conspicuous, Itchy bites left an a person' s skin in the
morning are most often caused by parasitic
bedbugs. These Insects actually come to you when you' re
sleeping ON PURPOSE so they can drink your delicious blood.
Spiders have no reason to be in your bed at night, though one
or two may wander In during breeding season. E, -' i
Know what eats bedbugs? Spiders.
Myth: Camel spiders are giant, highly venomous.
and are known for chasing and screaming at ursus-
pecking people.
FALSE
Again, these animals are not true spiders, but arachnids
related to scorpions. They are not venomous, and compared
with scorpions from the same habitat, they are relatively small.
Camel spiders don' t scream, as It has been claimed, but some
members of the species produce rattling sounds with their
chelicerae. Being desert animals, they often move to find
shade. Even if that shadow happens to be yours.
Myth: I don' t have bugs in my house. All I ever see
are spiders.
FALSE
What do you think those spiders are eating? Parasitic and
insects have evolved to avoid human notice. Spiders
are usually more conspicuous because they make no special
effort to hide themselves from humans. They' re only designed
to hide from their prey, which usually has poor vision.
Recluses and Hobos
are still bad news-
Recluse and hobo spider venom can cause
localized necrosis (tissue death) in the area the
bite was received. In worst case scenarios,
without treatment, people have been known to
lose limbs to recluse bites.

I remember my little brother killing this spider that caught a 						****					 ton of mosquitoes in the summer and would always keep its distance from us. He sucked it up in a little kid's &quot;bug vacuum&quot;, drowned it, then struck it to the wall. I yelled &quot;Why&quot; and he just replied &quot;I was bored.&quot;

I'd rather deal with a spider than a centipede.    
Semi-related story:    
   
Yesterday, I was taking a late shower after napping on the couch. I stood away from the water for a bit because it was scalding hot, and out of the corner of my eye, I noticed what I thought was a wad of brown hair wrapped around my ankle. (I was half awake, and didn't really care much.)    
So I reached my foot forward to hold it under the water and wash the hair off, and just before it reach the water I realized it was a giant ass centipede holding onto my ankle. I started shaking my foot and held it under the water. It finally fell off, and started running down the stream, but then the 						******					 crawls against the water current and 						*******					 jumps back onto my foot. I screamed, and shook my foot under the water again. It tried to jump back on me again, so I jumped out of the shower, and before my second foot had even hit the ground that bitch was out of the tub and under the pile of clothes on the floor.    
It kept avoiding me and getting back under the clothes each time I tried to kill it. Finally got my mom to do it.    
I couldn't finish explaining what happened to her because I started crying.   
   
TL;DR: Centipedes are assholes. Spiders aren't all that awful. Just creepy.

Dammit. Why is Houston covered by two recluse zones? Plus all the invasive ants...

But seriously, **** brown recluses. I was in Kansas City last summer, and at one point was volunteering to help at a church in a really bad part of town. I was helping clean up their nursery. And by clean up, I mean helping kill off the surviving brown recluses. There was an infestation, so bad that the five sticky pad traps that had been placed had no more room on them and there were still dozens left. I killed tons with my hands, with nothing but latex gloves as protection.

I'm not scared of black widow's, but I've always been afraid of brown recluses because of the effects of their venom. It was such a terrible day, but I knew that I was being a man, facing my fears and saving wee babes.

That's all I wanted to say.
