Most people are at least a little bit scared of spiders, and why not? We think of the deadly black widows, the movie-worthy tarantulas, and the soldier-scaring camel spiders, and we see eight-legged little monsters. Add to that the facts that hey are silent, sneaky, creepy-crawlies that are hard to avoid in the woods, hard to find when you walk through their webs, and hard to stop from coming into your house. They are masters of the ambush and skilled at camouflage. Scary!!
While, admittedly, many species of spiders are helpful in that they help control insect populations, there are also those that are harmful to people and pets. Take the brown recluse spider, for example: this spider lives in dark corners and places inside houses, between books on bookshelves, under furniture, and in boxes or bags that are in dark, dry places. Though not usually overly aggressive, humans do get bit fairly frequently by brown recluses because they share the same habitat, and the arachnid is often not easily seen.
