    Arachnophobia - Fear of Spiders - Rid spiders from your home

    Arachnophobia is a psychological issue which SpidaTrap will not cure, however, it will remove the creature that causes the panic attacks from your house. By reducing these horrendous unexpected encounters and with the knowledge that you are now guarded from any new attacks you spend more time in a relaxed state.

    This crippling phobia happens in 2 waves. The first wave is that horrible lurch you get in your stomach when you first notice a spider, the second wave (and for me the worst) is that you have to now deal with this fast, unpredictable and loose creature. SpidaTrap removes the second wave.

    I have found out over the years of research that although this is the biggest phobia in the UK nearly all sufferers choose not to acknowledge in any detail the creature that triggers their fear. This is as much a problem as the phobia itself. By acknowledging their fear of spiders arachnophobics actually have to think of spiders in more detail than they care to which most are unable to do. I used to just accept that once or twice a week I would encounter a spider, deal with it and then spend the next few days recovering until the next attack. My policy of putting spiders completely out of my mind (as if there was never any such creature on the planet) was the only respite I seem to have. Then inevitably the next attack would happen and the vicious cycle would start again. Looking back now I find it incredible that I accepted this level of stress at all.

    The arachnophobes that took the plunge and bought my SpidaTrap are now sending me emails daily thanking me and telling me their lives have changed completely since using them.

    25% to 35% of North Americans have arachnophobia, the irrational fear of spiders.

    In a study conducted in the UK, it was found that 32% of females and 18% of males stated that spiders made them feel either anxious and nervous or very frightened . That's roughly translates as between 65 million and 75 million Americans and more than 15 million British.


    There are 15000 known spider bites every year in the USA alone.

    Some spiders have up to 3000 young every summer with 1000 reaching adulthood.


    "I just wanted to email you to thank you for creating such a great product!
    Our whole house is petrified of spiders, so we invested in 30 traps and spread them around the house. The result has been amazing!!... In the first night we got two freakishly big house spiders, I have now realised that I cannot live without Spidatraps"    Carley from Kent
