What are worse to see, ants or spiders?

What are worse to see, ants or spiders, in terms of being pests in the house or office?


I would say it depends on which type of each.

Generally, I see more ants than spiders.  Fortunately, there is usually not many of either.

Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

I’m really quite scared of spiders so that is my dominant thought!

Arachnophobia movie trailer (1990). Silly movie.

We live in a 100+ y.o. house, so invaders are a given. I'm happy to see our spiders and centipedes keeping the vermin down.

Wouldn't want to have carpenter ants. Almost as bad as termites.

Spiders are a minor nuisance compared to dealing with fire ants. Go ahead. Step into a fire ant mound by mistake (sometimes you can't see the mound) and you will quickly learn to hate them.

I don't mind the ants and spiders as much as I do the field mice trying to find a warm place in the winter, 
and the swarms of mosquitoes in the brief summer.

Local Alaskans call the Mosquito our State Bird !!!!

Yeah, they're the one pest I can't get the centipedes to take on.

It is too bad that  I don't have an "outside" cat or two....  that might help with the mouse problem.
I do keep traps in my garage.... that seems to be where the may come in from time to timer, especially
when it is very cold.

HUGS,
Danielle

Our dogs usually get the mice that get inside the house. I find their lifeless little bodies at the bottom of the back steps, since the dogs don't eat them.

My recipe is to inspect the house's foundation when the days grow shorter but the weather is still warm. Every chink gets a patch of fine steel wool, caulk, and concrete, in that order. Makes me feel better whether or not it works.

Between spiders and ants I prefer spiders, they eat other bugs that may be an issue. My most hated bug of all though is bed bugs.

I think that mice eat the centipedes.

Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

If I were forced to pick one, I would rather have Spiders.... Ants can be a big problem because  of the number and they are always present on counter tops, kitchen tables, etc...  if you kill one, there will be a thousand more.

@ChrissyRyan
Dear Chrissy:
I don't want them either... they do not contribute to my household upkeep, they don't pay rent and they don't pay my property taxes.

I don't relocate them, I exterminate them on the spot.
HUGS,
Danielle
