The sight of a spider is enough to send many people running in the opposite direction. Arachnophobia, the fear of spiders, is one of the most common fears around the world.
So when a Nashville woman found nearly 50 (FIFTY!!!) Brown Recluse spiders just chilling in her bedroom, she began searching for a new bedroom.
It started innocently enough. The woman awoke to red bumps on her arm and some pain.
She went to the doctor, filled a prescription and figured that would be it. It wasn’t.
She ended up in the emergency room after suffering hallucinations a few days later. Then she realized something much more unsettling was afoot.
Despite her apartment managers spraying her unit, the woman described finding Brown Recluses “left and right.”
In case you aren’t familiar with the Brown Recluse species here’s an image of one playing in the sand for reference (with cute eyes added to protect the squeamish):
Funnily enough, after hearing the story, Twitter users wanted to bury themselves alive as well.

To many, there was only one surefire way of getting rid of the little 8-legged demons:

The apartment was promptly burned to the ground— Rob Burgundy & Gold (@elkabong82) July 6, 2018
The woman has decided to break her lease in order to move out of the apartment—a decision that will cost her over two thousand dollars.
If you ask us, that’s a small price to pay to not live in a literal web of horrors.
