So many people commented about 8 legged creepies on the Which insect to you dislike/fear the most? poll, that I decided to do another poll.

In my area the only thing to scare of is scorpions. I have never seen any giant or scary spiders round here.

I would have picked spiders but I think ticks are the nastiest that I can think of. One of my dogs seems to attract them when he goes outside. I hate pulling them out. Yeeeuuck.

Brown recluse for sure! Got bit twice only inches away from each other on my leg! Needless to say, I still bear the scars.

They don't jump much at all. They scurry for the most part and hold their front legs up when they move. It's actually a bit comical to watch.

They are sorta a "ghost story" for American soldiers; they make up all kinds of wold stories about them. I've heard everything from they run 25 mph to that they eat camels. All nonsense.

I've only seen a scorpion up close once, but it freaked me out more than any spider ever did.

I am terrified of spiders. I'll never forget seeing a black widow (or so I think it was a black widow) in my garage one day. OMG!

If camel spiders had any part of my daily life I think I would have a heart attack.

Just general spiders are enough to freak me out. My arachnophobia is pretty intense. Even the thought of desensitization therapy makes me want to cry because it would involve being near spiders. That's the point, toxie. Sigh. Haha

I'm afraid of poisonous spiders, like Black Widows, and I'm really scared of scorpions, but I have never seen one in real life.

I don't particularly care for arachnids in general, but I voted spiders mostly because they are everywhere, whereas scorpions aren't. I've been stung by a scorpion, not a pleasant feeling. One of the houses I lived in in Texas wasn't infested with them, but they got in very easily. My Mom always told me to shake out my clothes before I put them on, and it just so happened the one day I didn't, a scorpion was hanging out in my shorts. Luckily the scorpions around there weren't very poisonous.
