People are either deathly afraid of spiders, or they couldn’t care less about them. It just depends on the person. But sometimes, we have an encounter with a spider that shakes us to our cores and makes us want to disappear. There’s no saying what these evil creatures can do, so it’s always a good idea to stay as far away as possible, especially when some can kill you with one bite.
Even though the planet needs spiders, we don’t need to interact with them. Spiders are great at catching and eating disease-carrying insects, and pests that destroy plants. We’re better off with spiders than without, even though you may find it very hard to believe once you read these stories.
Godless Killing Machines
This user on Reddit had a frightening encounter with a Funnel Web spider. About 15% of their bites are poisonous. Their venom is highly toxic, and those who are bitten may experience difficulty breathing, nausea, swelling, and irritation. When the poster tried to get rid of the spider, it reared its head back and pointed her fangs at him. Out of fear, they slammed the door over her body. But instead of killing her, they released thousands of baby Funnel Webs from her back. What would you do in that situation? We’d burn our house to the ground. Luckily, the OP was smarter than that and used an entire can of Raid to kill them off (via lesmalan).
