Halloween Creepy Crawlies

Spiders do us humans a great service, actually.


But are we grateful?


It's enough to turn spiders off flies forever!
And then what are they gonna eat?


Some humans even genetically experiment with spiders,
like some kind of Frankenstein or something.


But is the result truly a fully functioning arachnid?


So can you blame spiders for occasionally
genetically experimenting with humans?


Let this be a lesson to us all.

My daughter is so petrified of spiders. I try to stay away from them when I can, but don't have the extreme fear that she has. My fear is mice.

Sorry to say, but I might just be that 'evil bitch.'

The bigger the spider, the more likely it's going to perish.

Laughed out loud at the furniture polish one.

I am actually a big fan of spiders. They do eat flies and are beautiful in their own way. I re-homed some to the room above the garage as the flies up there were out of control. True to form, the spiders have taken care of my fly issue. So thankful for them.

Love spiders! I am always happy to see them in my house.

I don't mind spiders so much...but not in the house. I was napping one day and one was on my face. That was not ok.

I have a spideress named Olga in my bathroom and two spiders Sergei and Andrei in my bedroom ceiling. We have a mutual agreement that they can stay there if they protect me from other bugs!

I love all spiders except black widows. I catch and release. They are actually fascinating creatures.

The fly pizza cartoon cracked me a smile, friend D … Thank you for making me smile today … Much love, cat.

Love the tech support. I'm going to have to share that on Facebook.

Never before did I think about how smart spiders are. Why not go for the pizza versus another fly? Pepperoni too.

Have a great Friday and weekend.

I hate walking into a spider web but I love watching them make such intricate structures.

CraveCute said...

I've always been terrified of them, unless they are tiny. Just seeing images on my phone or in a magazine will make me shriek!

Carol Blackburn said...

I don't know which I hate more.....spiders or hornets. Maybe I hate them equally. Yuck!!!!

Fundy Blue said...

Ha ha! Spiders creep me out, but if they leave me alone, I leave them alone. Actually I leave them alone regardless. Happy Friday! I hope it has been a good one!

mistress maddie said...

I haven't seen a spider in some time in the house, but it's those damn thousand leggers things I can't stand. They're fast disgusting little suckers.

Martha said...

Poor spiders.... I actually don't mind them at all. Centipedes, too. I consider them very beneficial. They keep the house clean. Whenever they're around, the other bugs/pests are not.

Nothing like a day with spider
Coffee is on

baili said...

Hubby leaves webs of spider in corners of front yard intentionally so they can hunt mosquitoes and flies though i am not in favor of this as thy look so creepy and during cleaning they sometimes bit me

Guillaume said...

My wife is scared of spiders. But I always have a couple of them as Halloween decorations.

bj said...

hahaa...pretty cute...I had a spider bite under my eye several years ago and had a totally black eye the next morning.

bill lisleman said...

I like spiders for their helpful bug catching. I've found that if you leave their webs alone long enough, they also filter dust from the air. I do draw the line at having them crawl on me. That's a clear violation of my personal space.

Rain said...

Great post Debra :) Happy Thanksgiving! :)

Ol'Buzzard said...

Spiders are fine - outside; but my cats are spider commandos so I don't have to worry about waking up with on in bed.
In Alaska my wife was bitten by a brown recluse: she had to go to emergency room: it got pretty nasty.

I let some of them live in the house if they do a good job and don't bother the rest of us. Fascinating critters they are!

Magic Love Crow said...

As long as they stay out of my bedroom, I am fine! LOL! I woke up once with a spider bite under my eye! Not good! Happy Thanksgiving Deb! Big Hugs!

I am horrible when it comes to 8 legged things! I have always been afraid of them even though I know they are so wonderful to us people. My husband and I saw the largest one we have ever seen the other day now that we love down south. It was the size of my palm...not exaggerating! It turns out they are common down here so maybe I should go for therapy so I can deal with them easier.

I loved the scene in Annie Hall when Diane Keaton called Woody Allen late at night to come over to kill a large spider in her apartment. He stood in her bathtub with a tennis racket and various apparatus swinging away at the spider. It was very funny. Sorry I'm not as brave as you are and tend to be more like Woody Allen's character in the movie.
