I hate all bugs -- big ones, little ones, it doesn't matter. I took the picture above because I hadn't ever seen such a big spider until I moved to N.C.

The body was the size of a quarter! My last apartment backed up to woods, and I was constantly getting HUGE spiders hanging off the side of my house. Thankfully, none of the big ones made it inside. I nicknamed them Mr. BigandNastys. (My dad told me to use brake cleaner to kill them. It works great and kills them on contact. It's not safe to use around pets, just FYI.)

Apparently I'm not the only one that's afraid of spiders, but I'm only scared of ones that are close to me! This woman doesn't even like them on the screen close to her!
