Fear of Spiders: Part of our Evolution
Spiders crawl in through open windows, doors, cracks and crevices to look for food and make their nests inside your home or workplace. While most species of spiders in and around League City do not pose a serious health threat, more people have an aversion, and in many cases an actual phobia, of this particular pest over any other. A spider infestation can be troublesome and even frightening for many individuals which may be due in part, to their unsightly appearance and physical similarity to the dangerous scorpion. Recent research conducted at Columbia University indicates that, our fear of spiders – a condition known as “arachnophobia” – is actually rooted in our DNA. According to the study, during the natural evolution of humans on the planet, most of the spiders encountered long ago were venomous and a threat to our survival. Spiders are still intensely disliked today and usually require professional assistance from a pest control expert when they have invaded our home or workplace.
