Black Widow Spider

I found a black widow spider (one of two North American poisonous spiders-the other is the brown recluse) at work yesterday. I brought her home and she is now happily snacking on a cricket. Earlier I watched her prepared her web. Amazing.

People at work wanted to kill the spider. I must admit spiders bug me too. But I don’t really know why. Is it something I learned as a kid?

Do we kill things because of fear?
