Today is National Save a Spider Day!!

National Save a Spider Day is celebrated on March 14th of every year. 

Ok creepy they may be, ugly they may be, but here is Why we should Save a Spider today. 

Arachnophobia is the fear of spiders and other arachnids. According to Wiki, Arachnophobia affects 3.5 to 6.1 percent of the population.

Most people would think nothing of quickly squashing a spider that is crawling up a wall or hanging creepily in the shower in the  corner on the ceiling. But there are those of us, who feel terrible killing anything, even yucky spiders.

Many of us have tried the “ever so brave” getting the spider with the end of the broom and running quickly towards the door to get it outside, with  not so good results. Usually the spider drops off, potentially running in your direction, just escalating the fear and the spider either gets away or ends up smooshed anyways!

So some wonderful people tried to solve this dilemna for us!
