Reading some trivia trash us humans are carrying our own death with us, unless we die through accident, we also live in a bug infested environment, we all swallow several spiders,
sleep with bugs and eat bugs, makes joyful reading not, oh and it is no good having a bath
we can not drown the little buggers.

On average, eight spiders a year can get stuck in a person's throat while sleeping.

The underside of the human epiglottis having just the right levels of pH, temperature and ventilation for the incubation of spiders' eggs, somewhere between 27 and 32 female spiders will annually make the excursion through your mouth, push past the epiglottis and lay their eggs on the other side of the door, before returning to their web for a meal of flies in a broth of saliva.

Some won't leave until after the baby shower.

Yeah. Uh huh. And on average, at least eight things happen to me per year that are unrecorded that I don't know about.

Second only to the human epiglottis, in terms of suitability for incubation, is the underside of bedcovers and blankets...

I don't know about eating spiders but being bitten by spiders in bed is apparently a serious problem here in Arizona. My wife says that there are A LOT of hospital stays that are caused by spider bites. A lot more than snakes.
