Never touch anything with more than four legs with your bare hands... And sometimes that's pushing it!
We live in spider central - they seem to gravitate to my house. I have a kill anything inside the house that moves and doesn't have a name policy. They are spooky enough outside the house - I do not like uninvited house guests.
You are so lucky that you've never been bitten! How did you find out what kind they were?
By the way I am now doing the paranoid OMG a bugs on me dance - thanks for that LOL
