Living in Missouri, in an area with a fair amount of trees, foliage, etc... I have a large number of spiders in the house, just your average little
brown spider. 100% of the time I leave them be for the simple fact they put out hits on any other actual "pests" in the house. As for brown
recluse... Working in surgery I have taken care of brown recluse bites (removing necrotic tissue). It is a strong bite, but easily taken care of if
done early. It's people that let them fester and necrose the tissue that have big problems. As far as spiders screaming, that would scare the holy
living mother of all things holy and good on this earth out of me. I once saw "hissing?" cockroaches at the zoo, scary little devils.
Funny story about spiders though... We have these greenish spiders here in missouri, I don't actually know what they're called, as I only bothered
learning the recluse and widow, they're the only poisonous ones here. One night I was getting ready for bed and saw one on my headboard. Now,
friendly as I am with the little guys, I don't particularly want to knowingly sleep with them. So I go get a glass to scoop him up and put him
outside. Now, I have my shirt off when I do this, since I was getting ready for bed. I lean over onto my jumbled up pillows and blankets and such to
scoop mister spider when I feel this painfull bite on my chest. I look down and it's a second spider just like the one on the headboard!!!! I was
set up!!!! Spiders are smarter than we think!
