I'm afraid of two things: closed spaces and spiders.
The first one is easy to avoid, but the second one......

It's the seed of the horse-chestnut tree
No idea if it will work but if it makes you feel better go for it!

I don't care much for the little ones, but the bigger species, like those that come out of the sewers, the creepy black ones, the size of a hand with the thick legs...jeez! keep them away from me!

I know these guys! These guys are the ones that run around at breakneck speeds and can turn that fast on a dime! Talk about UFO agility!!
I'm absolutely terrified for these critters. How do I get rid of them? If you got good aim, those small multi-color rubber bands will take care of them easily. I'm talking of taking them out with rubber bands at a good distance...
But I don't do it anymore.. Love life! (Even if that life can scare you to death!). Now I hate death more than anything, more than I'm afraid of them critters.

I pick 'em up and put them back outside. Spiders eat
flies and that for me, is a reason to let 'em live.
However, I know of people's fear of these things, and all
I can say is the spider is more scared of you than you are of it.
You have a fear of it walking along your arm with it's hairy legs.
The spider's fear is that you'll end it's life by walking all over it!
They live fast gunslinger lives, think of it as a guard against
all the other creepy-crawlies that invade from outside.
Also, they eat ant princesses that fly off to make other ant colonies,
ants... now there's a damn problem!

No offense Gyps, but if your standing outside for hours, that is called a disorder and you need to see someone on it.
Solve the problem why the spiders are there. They need a food source. They don't show up where there is nothing to eat. Like everyhome, you have probably had the little locals move in. The spiders move in to eat them. Go over your home and fill in any nook and cranny you can find. Find a safe safe fumegator, and kill all at once.
I don't know if you have it there but here we have a product called Home Defense. You spray it around the perimeter of the house. And it is supposed to be less dangerous then other sprays. But I dunno. I sprayed it on a pumpkin vine and it died several weeks later.
But it works great, and even kept out carpenter ants.
