Spiders in California do not care for people with spider phobia!
The thought of a spider makes me shiver, but seeing one causes panic attacks. Either I run away in panic and scream or I can not move anymore. I am very glad that Klaus tolerates my fear and then removes the animals. I never go to sleep without searching our bedroom for spiders every day, the thought of it being a spider crawling over me while sleeping is unbearable for me.
Imagine, I have a friend who has a spider in the bedroom for weeks and calls her Thekla , I would not enter this room anymore.
Of course, my spider phobia does not make me sleep well even on vacation, because just spiders in California can also be poisonous. Already while writing it shakes me with disgust and fear.
Every time we arrive at our family in California I first search the guest room if there is not a spider somewhere. Also, I check clothes before I put them on, it could have something hidden in it. So far I have not seen any during our stays in the house, or she hid well. However, in California, all homes and apartments are equipped with sturdy grilles on windows and doors, which calms me down a bit.
Unfortunately that does not apply to the garden or the house walls. I thought I was dying when I saw this big and hairy spider. I was scared and afraid at the sight and I got racing heart to massive sweats.
I know that most of the giant spiders living there are actually quite safe and the bite of a tarantula is no more dangerous than that of a spider. But when Klaus filmed it and my son also intervened and presented it in a tin (he wanted to release her somewhere), I got a screaming fit and went very far at a distance.
I can not understand that there is even a city that celebrates Tarantula Festival every year in late October, just before Halloween. At that time, Coarsegold, California, near Yosemite National Park, will be visited by countless tarantulas that mate there. I am sure that this place will never count among its visitors.
Spiders in California, Black Widow over the garage door!
The black widow looks small and inconspicuous against the tarantula, but she can not be that small to scare me. It has always been my fear to meet this monster spider who eats its males after mating.
In a nonhealthy person, their bite can do a great deal of damage and even be deadly if you do not come to the doctor fast enough. Since I am allergic and in many things, such as allergic to wasps, it is close, that I would not get well.
My daughter-in-law told me that you often do not notice the bite. Only after 2 to 3 hours it comes to swelling at the bite site and to muscle spasms, vomiting and sweating. Although the Black Widow is very poisonous, deaths are rare.
Well, that's really reassuring for me.
Spiders were enough for a vacation.
I just hope I never meet the brown or red recluse spider (red or brown recluse). They have a tissue-destroying poison that can cause necrosis that is difficult to heal. If it gets into the bloodstream, it can destroy the red blood cells and even deaths occur.
I know that others can not understand this fear of spiders and that in most cases it is unfounded. But for me it's the plank horror.
