Spider Homesteads in Woman’s Ear

The spider was there for five days before doctors discovered it:

A woman who checked into China’s Changsha Central Hospital Wednesday (Aug. 8) with an itchy ear learned she had a small spider dwelling in her ear canal, according to news reports. It had crawled inside five days earlier while she slept.

That’s probably something that you should keep in mind when you go to bed tonight. Spiders are just looking for opportunities to crawl into your ears.  They watch you as you start to fall asleep. Do you feel a little itch in your ear right now? That may be a spider that got in last night.
