According to statistics, one on five men and half of the female population suffers from this phobia. It does not matter whether we are talking about deadly venomous spiders such as tarantulas or cute long-legged do-gooders who industriously decimate the insect population in your home and their only sin is that they have been born with more than six legs! Some people can fall into a stupor for seeing but a spider web let alone more!

The panic attack, as a rule, can occur at any time, most often during a “meeting” with a spiders. People who are afraid of spiders react violently both to living individuals and to dead insects that are not capable of harming them. This panic phobia sometimes reaches the point of absurdity - even the image of the arthropod in the picture will cause a strong fright of the patient.

You can’t really escape insects all together. They are a part of the world we live in as much as we are. So, finding a wasp buzzing next to your ear or a spider trapped inside your sink shouldn’t be such a big deal, yet it somehow is.

Spiders come in various shapes, sizes and colors. They can be the regular tennant that doesn’t pay rent or your worst nightmare that bites you in your sleep, either way you’ll never know until the bite happens, and then, it might be too late. This is why we are so afraid of spiders, scientifically known as arachnophobic.

Ben Toffoli was driving home from work in Adelaide, Australia, when he spotted an enormous spider entering a nearby car. The video, uploaded to Instagram on March 5, shows the large spider crawling into what appears to be the trunk of a Mazda CX-5. “I bet they got a nasty surprise” Toffoli speculated as he told Storyful that the driver did not notice what happened and drove away.

In the video you can clearly see the spider on the back of the car, on the trunk to be more exact. And as it crawls up toward an opening, it doesn't hesitate and crawls right in. If you ask us this is both scary, creepy, shockingand disgusting. But hey, watch the video and let us now what you think!
