They’re creepy, they’re crawly and seeing even a tiny one can make more people than you might expect -- squirm, shriek or run from the room. We’re talking about spiders, and nature educator and animal behavior specialist Jane Marlow believes we should actually thank spiders for what they provide and to get beyond the stereotype.
