There are always all kinds of insects living in my house because it's an old house and very close to all kinds of nature. I put yes, but I am not as afraid of spiders as I am of other bugs. I actually like spiders and bugs and stuff. But when I see a small beetle or silverfish or something crawling on my floor or in a cup I got out of the cupboard or anything like that I actually convulse and get chills all throughout my body. If I run into a spider web outside I will squeak and then whipe myself repeatedly, a little manically because I'm afraid the bugs will be crawling all over me. The smaller the bug, the worse it is for me. And yet, I like bugs, and I'll often put 'em outside if they're in the house.

I hate spiders. I once ran into a big web while we were playing around in a corn field. It was a huge black widow spider. I always have hated them since. I have big black wolf spiders in my house. They always crawel into the sink, and shower. Once one made a web in my sink. I wash that suker down the drain. It was big has a half dollar coin. All the old houses here have those big wolf spiders.

No, not really. If I find one in the house, I usually try to capture it so that I can let it go free outside. I can appreciate spiders. It's those ants and flies, among others, that I can't stand. :um

Not at all, but I get out a little vacuum and suck them up when I see them. The vacuum doesn't have a bag, it just sucks the spiders and dirt into a little container. The container has fallen off once or twice and I'm a little bit afraid that one day a thousand baby spiders will swarm out of there, seeking vengance for momma.

I make it a point to not fear spiders.

No, only when they bite me. Then I have to go on a wide scale bug hunt massacre around my house. Severed limbs and tattered webs everywhere.

No, not at all, I used to play with them when I was little, and I was especially after the big poisonous ones, that had like a cross on their back :D
