Title: Are you afraid of spiders?

This room might be your cure ;)

Lol cool, being from Australia, spiders are something that you get used to ... well mostly.

That is a hell of a lot though!
Title: Re: Are you afraid of spiders?
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on March 13, 2015, 03:00:35 am
Yeah and your spiders are quite huge, too >.< I would be a bit creeped out if I saw a tarantula in my home, but I think I would be even more if I saw a daddy big legs spider ball indoors since that could probably mean that there's a nest somewhere in the walls or getting rid of all of them would be hard. That said, if you know which type of spiders are dangerous then you are probably fine. If it wasn't for them creating plenty of sticky webs, reproducing and possibly crawling on me or my food at night I would probably not mind keeping two or three alive in my appartment so that they can take care of wasps, mosquitoes and flies for me.

EDIT: lol

Depends if it's just a teeny flycatcher or a black widow... I'm not afraid of NL spiders but damn would I get the hell away from a black widow or similar not so pretty spider.

Sometimes, over here, when people buys grapes there is a spider in the package and in rare occasions it was a black widow. This makes the news when this happens and it's kinda scary despite being very rare. >.<

Also it's Friday 13th :P

Seriously tho, same as aeTIos. I'm not generally afraid (at all) of spiders/bees/wasps/other dangerous small things but if I were to face a massive one I'd probably react differently.

Title: Re: Are you afraid of spiders?
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on March 16, 2015, 11:23:44 pm
Wait what? O.O

I am unsure if I would want a very large spider to crawl on me and especially not anything that can sting, like mosquitoes or wasps. Of course it depends what kind of bug it is, though. There are some I don't mind picking up or letting crawl on my arms :P As for wasps I know they won't necessarily sting me but just one slight movement can cause them to think you are attacking them then they can sting you and it hurts bad. Plus I hate when stuff goes on my food anyway.

I like spiders outside of my house. I also hate bananas. I also dislike bees indoors because I seem to get stung indoors. I let bees crawl on my fingers if I'm at the botanical garden.

Edit.
@DJ Omnimaga the original video has daddy long legs if I'm not mistaken. They're harmless and kinda weird (imo).
Title: Re: Are you afraid of spiders?
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on March 17, 2015, 02:54:59 am

But that's to be expected when you live in an area that has 5 of the worlds deadliest in the wild.
Title: Re: Are you afraid of spiders?
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on March 18, 2015, 06:34:11 am
Not sure if I am very fond of snakes personally. There was a zootherapy girl at a local fair once and we could put her snake around the back of our neck and it was kinda akward. That one was safe but I am unsure if I would want to go near a wild snake, knowing how fast they can attack.

Like a Youtube comment says, it's an average. If people eats an average of 8 spiders a year, it could be that hundreds of people never eat any, but one or two people eat 100 a year during their sleep. :P

ANd even if it's not true, I am fairly sure that there is at least one person in the world that does it. After all, this world is full of sick individuals. :P

I wouldn't want to sleep in a cavern where there are lots of spiders. Imagine if one crawls inside my mouth and then I wake up and chew on it without knowing. It must be disgusting. >.< I know that some insects can be eaten but large spiders sometimes almost seem like 90% liquid when you kill them >.<

Really? O.O I know that some ants can sting or bite but not the ones here IIRC and while they are annoying if you walk in the forest I don't care much about them. In the forest if I stand there and am on an unnoticed nest they start crawling on my legs. Jumping usually make them fall but sometimes they might end up inside my shoes, which is less fun.

Yeah that is what I am afraid of because when I was young I hated it when I had the feeling of ants crawling up my leg.

THe only good side of this that I would like personally is the fact those spiders are probably getting rid of annoying bugs like wasps, mosquitoes and flies, which is why I never kill spiders that are outside (unless one was actually dangerous or invasive). But they better stay outdoors. Also I hated when I was teen and delivered newspapers/flyers, only to have my face covered by part of spider webs  >.<

On top of that, the facehuggers in Alien series looks a bit like giant spiders.

I keep reading stuff about how daddy longlegs are dangerous, but then many posts saying they're nowhere close to it. I have to wonder if the ones who claim they are dangerous didn't trap them in their hand or try to get bitten. That said, I also prefer that they stay outside the house. :P

I love spiders. I really want a pet tarantula as well. One of my teachers even offered me his. Sadly my mom wont let me have one ):

Good thing to O.O
I sure don't like taratulas...

Ah right, the skin-piercing thing. Some people say the venom isn't that powerful, though.

Also I wouldn't want a pet tarantula. I kinda prefer pets that we can play with, like budgies, cats, dogs, etc. And I won't get a pet since I wouldn't have the time to take care of it.

What is  budgy? No kidding, pet to play with are better, in my opinion.

Budgies are those little parakets that are usually green and yellow.   https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Budgerigar

What I've heard is that the venom is relatively the strongest based on size of either the spider or the fangs. Since they can't pierce the skin we never get bit by them but I also think that they can't deliver enough venom even if they could bite us.

Fun fact i learned: Daddy long legs (aka harvestmen) are arachnids unlike many people claim.

In any case, if that isn't venomous then I would rather have this than the many wasps we have here during the 2nd half of the summer. Wasps are annoying as hell and if you try to make them go away they try to sting you >.<

I would hate that, but fortunately I never had that happen. Usually they stick to my t-shirt but above it, not under it. I usually try to be careful to not do big movements but at one point the thing has to go away. At least bees can only sting you one and they aren't as agressive. Apparently if you aren't allergic and get stung, it makes the next bee sting less harmful as the initial one boosts your immune system or something like that. The sting must be painfull, though (I never got stung by bees but it happened as kid by wasps)
