Humans are ridiculous

I just want to throw my hat into the ring about the Humans Are Space Orcs trope that has been going around and I’ve been enjoying immensely.

You know how a large percentage of us have a fear of spiders? Even cripplingly so, like “kill it now I’m crying and breathing into a bag” kind of fear. So what if the aliens are monitoring our transmissions before making first contact, and see, for example, a bunch of Tumblr users discussing how scary spiders are?
Put that with how badass humans generally are (seriously, we invented surgery before we invented anesthetic and consume literal poison because we like the taste), how freaked out would the aliens be to learn that there’s something we truly fear? I can see it going down like this:
Human Steve: Tell us about FTL travel and your culture, we have much to learn from each other
Alien: Yeah yeah in a minute tell me about the spider threat are we safe right now or

Even better would be if Human Steve is not one of those people who is afraid of spiders at all. Like, he has a pet tarantula and puts wild spiders outside safely when they come into his bathroom, if he bothers with them at all. And the aliens are VERY CONCERNED about the little guys and he’s like ???? They aren’t??? A threat????
But then they consult with Human Bill, and Human Bill is basically Professional Spider Hater and goes on for a weirdly long time about how spiders are the actual devil and how black widows are really dangerous and let’s not even MENTION Australia. He gets the heebee jeebies and starts twitching and itching as he begins to feel phantom bugs on his skin.
Both Human Steve and Human Bill insist that the other is the weird one.
The aliens are more concerned than ever.

Natural Spiders repellent

Please don’t kill them, I hate them so much but I can’t hurt these little nasty things.
I you find one in your house , simply remove it or call someone to help you get rid of it. 🌿

Here are some ideas for them not to come inside of your warm and lovely place. 🌿

🕷Essential oils :
• Eucalyptus
• Citronella
• Lavender
• Peppermint
• Tea Tree
• Cinnamon
• Citrus
• Cedar
( Use the Essential oils with extreme cautions, some of them may hurt you, and kill the spider with only one drop)

You can spray them with distilled water around your windowsill.


🕷 Plants in your garden :
• Lavender
• Mint *
• Lemon Balm
• Lemon grass

The safest way, plus it’ll smell amazing.

* Jumping Spiders seem to love Mint , people mentioned they had some in theirs, thank you *


🕷 Nuts :
• Chestnuts
• Walnuts

Put them near your windowsills or in places you’re sure you’ll find a spider.
