Love them or hate them
There is something about spiders that invokes real fear in so many people that its thought our fear of them is an evolutionary development which increased survival rates. From an Irish perspective though, fear of spiders is something thats very hard to understand. The reason is that a spider is a great form of pest control, if there is a spider in the house, then he has to be feeding on something and personally I prefer the spider than its prey. So although we don't consider the spider a pest, we do get a lot of queries about them.
