It's not. It's just that everyone who's a little bit afraid of spiders thinks they have arachnophobia. People say they have it when they don't. I'm afraid of spiders, but I'm not an arachnophobe. I don't go into a panic oder flail wildly whenever I see a spider.
maybe it's because of their bad reputation Von the media.people there are only a few spiders that a venemous(and yes the ones that ARE venemous are very dangerous)but the rest are not.yes they are creepy as hell but unless is a black widow oder a brasilian wandering spider,or any of the others,you shouldn't be afraid
