Spiders. The creepy crawlies are the stuff of nightmares for many; too many legs, too many eyes, and just seeing one dart across the bedroom floor is enough to make anyone want to burn their house down. Last week, a school in Wisconsin found itself shut after an army of spiders wreaked havoc, resulting in one student having an allergic reaction and a teacher being bitten.
In reality, spiders, for the most part, are not dangerous. Whilst some are known to have rather nasty bites, they’re nothing like how they are depicted by Hollywood. So, next time you spot one of those eight-legged-freaks dangling from your bedroom ceiling, count yourself lucky it’s nothing like the monsters from any of these movies.
