If you’re anything like me, you can appreciate spiders from a distance, far from your home. I can admire those individuals who have no fear of arachnids, but I cannot tell you how many times a spider has fallen on me while sleeping, reading, walking into my garage, etc.
Those brave souls who have no fear of eight-legged intruders will never know the anxiety felt each time you shake out a blanket before crawling into bed, or banging your shoe on the floor before putting it on, you know, just in case.
Fortunately, for those of you like myself, there is hope. The more information we can gather about spiders, the less scary they seem. It's beneficial to learn about the different types of spiders, spider identification and which are dangerous. You might be surprised to find out that they can even benefit us!
