I suffer from extreme arachnophobia. My husband sent me this picture of a spider living in our storage building. My first instinct was to tell him to kill it with fire; but cooler heads prevailed and he just left it alone. I’m afraid that it is venomous and will have lots of little venomous babies in our building and the building and everything in it will have to be transferred to the ownership of the spider.

This is a Wolf Spider, and we suppose it would make no difference to an arachnophobe, but Wolf Spiders are not considered dangerous to humans. They are hunting spiders that do not build webs, so it is doubtful it will remain in one location very long.
