A new app has been developed which posts daily pictures of the creepy crawlies to help cure the fear of spiders.
The Arachnophobia app, dubbed Phobia Free, for iPhone and iPad, has been devised with the help of specialist psychiatrists and is also reviewed and approved by NHS England.
According to metro.co.uk, the interactive app works by exposing users to images of spiders, which become more realistic as they progress.
Co-founder of Virtually Free which developed the app, Dr Andres Fonseca said that the initiative by NHS England to give people access to quality assured apps and protect patients is very important.
The report said that Arachnophobia affects six per cent of the population and is one of the most common phobias in the world.
