OMG! I hate spiders - seriously, they scare me to death..the only species I would gladly exterminate! Okay, that's a lie..roachs & bedbugs & fleas & ticks train spiders to eat those nasty insects & MAYBE I'd let them live - as long as they come no where near my home!

Keep it on the down low or the ones that are left will disappear really soon!

ted. They really deserve to be protected rather than threatened by human activities.
