The question would then have to be asked would a spider only spend one day in a spot before creating a web elsewhere? We digest them in our lives through processed foods and worse than spiders make their way into the mix.
It is nothing to worry about in most cases.
Vonnie, Ft Oglethorpe GA USA i myself am not a huge fan of spider, if i see the odd one in my room im not going to go up and have a chat with it, but reading all this stuff has made me never want to sleep again,yes its never bothered me before, until a spider got loose in my room, and my only conclusion is that i ate him and now hes missing,most of the facts people have posted have scared me stupid.
Doctor J. Seeing is believing!
It would be quite easy, especially if the eaters are not terribly picky to eat smaller less delicate spiders more frequently and eat enough for even 1000-2000 noneaters.
Our body reflexes us to swallow even in our sleep. I see them all the time and I am constantly spraying.
Well woke up in the morning and it was gone. Hopefully it wont turn out to b lethal! True story. Because crops are almost always infested with insects, the harvests will usually have pieces of insect too. I thumped the spider to the floor, and smashed it with my shoe. Insects are not that stupid. It all depends on where you live, the climate and the factor of what kind leave near and around you.
Plus, at certain levels, the damage from insects is not even noticed. I'm a sleep therapist and study peoples sleep behaviour at their homes, with a video camera. It was huge. Fear not.
Also where do they come from? Definatly the spider was trying to get into my mouth - or else why would it return a second time? I'm only 12 years old and I've come up with this conclusion.
I have taped my mouth shut every night since that happened. See, the flux capacitor has 3 branches, inside the fuel bearing is a series of aluminium magnets and single tower corn rod. Maybe it was a spider, maybe not.
