That worker is just a decoy. Do you hear sizzling bacon?

It is insane to fear spiders and snakes.  I once saved a Black Widow from an A/C i was removing and took it to the bushes next to it when I found it in the control box. Another time I found one at work and brought it home for my 7 year old daughter to see before I took it out to the woods and released it. We are all in this thing, whatever it is, together.

I'm ok with spiders on my hands, but I do feel a little bit of the irrational fear if they climb above my elbow.

Usually I just keep cool and raise my hand, and they change directions, and I can set them down when they reach my fingertips again.

There has been at least one involuntarily desperate shake though.  I like spiders, but some instincts are difficult to overcome.

I'm ok with snakes but cannot take spider webs, especially when I walk into one with my face, because I don't know where the spider that made it is.

Snakes are definitely less alarming, although I can't control the jump if I see one out of the corner of my eye.  As long as I'm looking at the snake directly I'm fine.  I don't much like having the constrictors around my neck though.  I can feel how strong they are and... well that's just uncomfortable.  I'd definitely lean towards smaller species if I ever decided to keep one as a pet.

Spiders in webs are definitely disturbing. I don't mind spiders where I can see them, but if I can't see them it's an effort of will to control my reactions.

Are you insane?  It is perfectly normal to fear things that can do you an extensive amount of harm.

When I lived in Texas, it wasn't unusual to come across a venomous snake in the yard. While most of them wont actually kill an adult, they will fark you up.  And some species are pretty aggressive. A coral snake or a copperhead will run off given a chance. A cottonmouth will stand its ground.

I had my granddaughter living with me and she and her little dog played out in the yard. So I killed a lot of snakes. A hoe is the proper tool.  You can stand farther back from them and if the hoe is sharp, one good hit will separate the head from the body.  Shovels work too, but you have to be closer since the shovel only works going straight down.

That is an antiquated approach to snakes rooted in stupid christianity. They don't want anything to do with us, they serve a vital role in pest control, and we're the one's Godzillaing through their environment.

Just shoo them if they aren't dangerous or be somewhere else if they are. If they linger call animal control.

I should add I have one exception to my no kill rule for critters. Black Widows are kill on sight.

Because, unlike most snakes, they won't move on, there are also plenty of them.

You live there voluntarily? Or did someone reinstitute the penal colony/exile punishment?

I'm ok with looking at insects and arachnids but prefer to not let them crawl on me. I once picked up a praying mantis to show my daughter. I was fine with it on my hand and forearm but when it reached my elbow I absolutely lost my shiat and ripped my T-shirt off just to get it off me. This amused my daughter and her friend immensely.

My general rule is if it has less than 2 legs or more than 4 I want nothing to do with it.

Cottonmouths don't 'shoo'. Seriously, try it sometime. They just get pissed off and attack-y.

I left non-venomous snakes alone since they do eat vermin and if someone got bit, it wouldn't be a catastrophe.
The ones I terminated were venomous and living in my backyard where there were small children playing.  No way I would allow them to stay. And there was no animal control where I lived.  I knew calling the sheriff would be useless. I called one time about a dog that was being a problem and was told to simply shoot it. (I didn't)  Pretty sure he would have given the same advice about a snake.
