I think it has much to do with children learning from their parents.
Most people go ewwww a spider and kill it, then the child grows up doing the same thing in most cases and passes this trait onto their children and so
Spiders and snakes, actually bugs in general are feared and despised mostly due to ignorance. Granted some have legitimate reasons for being hated.
I absolutely love my tarantulas. I check to see what they are up to dozens of times a day every single day.
Truly fascinating creatures.
