I actually don't kill spiders I leave them by windows to catch all these little gnats that come into my house all the time.
My aunt does the same.
I think tarantulas are incredibly beautiful. But after you've seen what their bite can do: I have no problem putting my finger on why they are scary.; :)
I actually like spiders. The only time I mind their presence is if they get in a position where they could easily bite me, since you can't exactly tell how jittery they're going to be at any given moment. For the most part, they'll leave you alone and take care of some more annoying pests, though, so they're cool in my book!
I like spiders. Perhaps it's the patterns. The European widow's pattern just screams tattoos and heavy metal music.
Those 8 legged creatures are scary because they have 5 more legs than I do jk
Also some of them just look creepy...
Far less scary as spider paste underfoot. :)
