I've been bitten several times in the past, too, but not many since i was a kid. They usually won't bother you as long as they don't get inside your clothing, or you accidently grab one or start squashing one. I'm not all that fond of spiders either, but I dislike deer flies and mosquitoes even more. And since spiders eat those blood suckers, they are alright by me. They still give me the creeps when I walk through a web, but what can you do. I guess I got used to them when I kept a boat docked at a lake. Every time we went there we spent the first hour or so washing the spiders off the boat. It was a fairly big boat. We used to have a problem with them getting inside, but found the no pest strips kept the inside relatively bug and spider fee.

Every morning I have to tear down part of a web on the back doorway of my garage. We are practically on a first name basis. You would think he would get tired of that and move on. He is a big nasty looking spider, too. I know he is there, so he is not a problem as long as he doesn't move indoors.

Now garden spiders are cool. Big nasty looking things with that yellow pattern on them. Awesome webs, too. If I find them up near the house, I either leave them alone, or move them to the garden. Better than pesticides. Spiders in the house? That is where I draw the line. I haven’t established a tagging program, so there is usually no second chances for those.

I remember watching a spider put the finishing touches on an elaborate web, anchored between two trees. No sooner did he finish, I unhinged it from one of the trees and it all collapsed. I swear that I heard a very faint "sonofabiiiii...."
