      Yeah but bees can't kill you like spiders can. At least now most people quit trying to say the daddy long legs was venomous. (It's not even a spider.)

      Seems they are taking it all out of proportion as many are saying they are not as bad as what the news is making them out to be. I also have a huge fear of spiders so seeing things like this does not do my fears any good. My local newspaper still seems to think it's OK to keep posting up about people whom have been bitten by them like a guy near where I live was hospitalised by a bite from one yet they are then saying experts have said it's not as bad as it seems and we are not to be scared.

      I personally think many of the people bitten already have either disturbed the spider or there is something that attracts them to have bitten them. I guess it would just be easier for an expert to explain things to put people at ease rather than always putting the frighteners on them.

      I absolutely do not like spiders so I understand completely but some really are dangerous. I don't worry about it all the time as I don't worry about anything until it happens, if I did I'd go crazier than I am now. :D
