Arachnophobia

I found a dead brown recluse in The Baby's room today. The Baby doesn't actually sleep in her room, but where there is a dead spider there are sure to be live ones. Icky. I suspected we had them around -- this is, afterall, an old house in the South -- but I don't exactly like seeing proof. Growing up in Arizona, we always had to watch out for black widows and after our neighbors trimmed their palm tree we had a scorpion invasion. The black widows never seemed to be much of a problem, we usually found them outside, but my little brother spent several nights in the ICU after a scorpion sting. I hate arachnids.
