The Spider Situation

There are these nasty looking spiders in Scotland. They seem to be common, at least in my house. They are HUGE (so not huge, but disturbing enough for me), black and have fangs or something. Gross!

We found one in Connor's room last night (that guy in the above picture). It always disturbs me when we find one close to Connor. Twice I have found them within inches of him. Once in his playpen and once on the floor. So disturbing.

Anyway, according to people over here, spiders don't bite in Britain. Seems like a pretty bad myth to me. But people seriously always say that over here. It is almost funny. After doing a little research, I found that this is in fact FALSE. Big surprise, I know. From this research I did find out that there is only one spider over here that can actually have bad affects on humans if you are bitten by it. I didn't look at any spider pictures to find out if the one harmful spider in Britain is the one I constantly find in my house.

Honestly, I didn't really want to know. I just wanted to prove that spiders really do bite over here.

The spider doesn't look so scary on the bottom of a shoe!

  1. Ugh, I hate spiders. At least I hate them being anywhere near my space.
