Don’t be in a hurry.Think for a second.These creatures are human friendly.They clear your residence / garden by eating disease causing pests. Majority of the spiders could save your life.

There are more than 43,000 different species of spiders and less than 30 can cause human deaths. ( less than 1% ) source-Britannica.com

The image below is that of a Jumping Spider.

“Spiders are anti-social, keep pests under control, and mostly mind their own business, but they somehow summon fear in humans who are far more dangerous, deceitful and have hurt more people. Of the two I’m more suspicious about the latter.”     Donna Lynn Hope
