SPIDERS: EIGHT LEGS, AND THEY DO NOT LOVE YOU

SCENE ZONE

The mere appearance of our eight-legged friends seems to trigger deepseated negative reactions in many people. Yes, there are those who love Spiders, but many, many others would rather they just walked away or got squished by a big enough rolled-up newspaper. Originally, Spiders were seen as storytellers or prophets who could foretell good and ill fortune for those brave enough to ask. Sadly, like many of the other animals in our list, Spiders most probably became linked to Halloween through the perception that they were acceptable familiars to witches. So the next time you see a Spider, just give it a wide berth – after all, rather than being agents of evil, Spiders actually keep insect populations down in your house. The more Spiders, the less you’ll see of various other insects.
