Can spiders lay eggs in a human's skin?

Answer

Contrary to widespread urban legends, spiders do not lay eggs in human skin. This setting is not an appropriate environment for spider eggs to hatch.

Another myth associated with spiders comes from the American Midwest. Supposedly, the fruit of the Osage orange tree is repulsive to spiders and keeps them out of the house. The fruit, also known as "spider balls," is placed next to interior walls. However, in the outside world, spiders sometimes make their homes in Osage orange trees and spin webs on fallen pieces of fruit. In the Pacific Northwest, horse chestnuts are said to be repellent. However, spiders have little, if any, ability to sense odors in the air.
