The Spiders and the Bees

The Spiders and the Bees

Mommy, why do humans hate us? I don’t know, Matthew. Our species is completely harmless to them. And we keep the mosquito population down, who are responsible for killing more humans every year
than other humans do. So humans have no rational reason to fear us, but they still do? I’m afraid humans aren’t that smart, Matthew. *MWAH* Sleep tight, don’t let the bed humans bite. Love you mommy! I love you too Matthew. Mom? I think the hate that spiders get is a tad bit undeserved. Okay, fine if you’re in the shower and you see a spider crawling up your leg like a fricking pervert then that’s an appropriate time to freak out. But other than that, spiders are most likely not going to hurt you. Their webs are to weak to trap you, they don’t know how to open doors, and there’s only like a fifty percent chance that they’re venomous. Ok, but for real unless you live in Australia the chances of you dying by a spider bite is pretty low. There are venomous spiders, yes. And if you’re having a negative reaction to a spider bite, then you should get treatment, but a large percentage of spiders are harmless. Even the black widow – – known as the most venomous spider in North America, won’t kill you if you’re a healthy adult. Their bite will be painful for a couple of days, sure, But like you’ll walk it off! That was, that was a joke, if you get bitten by a Black Widow spider, then don’t walk it off. Go see a doctor. And hey! If you’re lucky enough, you’ll get super powers. So wait, the two most dangerous spiders in North America are the Brown Recluse and the Black Widow? What are you trying to say about dangerous colors, America? Oh wait the Great White Shark is even more dangerous, never mind. Technically sharks are like…. the second least dangerous animal out there, Besides puppies, cause like… They don’t wanna eat humans. I-I mean like if you had to fight a spider and a shark, The-the shark would win. Also spiders kill pests. According to this comic I made in 2014, and this National Geographic article, a single spider can eat about 2,000 insects a year. So if you are not a fan of flies, moths or mosquitoes, which incidentally kill 600,000 people a year, then you’re on TEAM SPIDER! Cause they’re also not fans of them. Well, they are fans of them, but they… …they are fans cause they eat them. I’m not saying you have to be roommates with arachnids, I’m just saying that if you see a spider. don’t put it through torture, continuously smashing it with a blunt object! Euuuuugh, it’s still moving, it’s still moving!! KILL….. ME SQUASH Instead, get a cup and carefully place it over a spider. They’re really dumb, so doing this will be easy. Then scoop up your new best friend
with a piece of paper, and yeet it back into the wild with the rest of God’s glorious creatures. THUNDERCLAP Yeah…actually, there is a high chance
that they won’t make it, being thrown into
a completely different environment. But they should have thought of that
before they decided to live in my house! Even though a spider has 8 eyes, they have terrible eyesight. So that spider that landed on your face did not do it intentionally. Some spiders that live in caves care completely blind. They don’t even have one eye! But even if they did have eyes, their whole world would still be pitch black. What a sad life to be a part of. Just every time you’re outside, seeing the sun, just think that somewhere there’s a colony of spiders, just in pure blackness, just never seeing the sun, never seeing their children smile or graduate college. They’re just sitting in a cave for all their life. So is nature’s. That is the way this- the cookie crumbles Also we’re forgetting the most amazing thing about spiders, which is that they are incredibly talented in “web design” LAUGH GIGGLES Proportionately the silk
that makes up a spider web is stronger than the fibers
that make a bullet-proof vest. So next time you go to a gun fight, put on a spider web instead. The amazing thing about spider webs is that not only can they save Wilbur from being slaughtered, but it’s just STUPID incredible that something so small Can make such an intricate shape from nothing but the material inside their own bodies. The Golden Silk Orb Weaker Spider has too many middle names and has enough silk inside of them to make three full spider webs. And it’s this guys job to pin that spider down and pull all it’s silk out like some type of spider predator. It’s okay though. The documentary said he was just harmlessly immobilizing the spiders. I can’t believe this is someone’s job. I don’t think telling people I’m a YouTuber is that bad anymore. “So…uh, what do you do for a living?” “I harmlessly immobilize spiders with thumb tacks and pull silk out of their abdomen to add to my ever increasing, collection. What about you? “OH! I, uh, make YouTube videos…” I see people with arachnophobia being irrationally afraid of these harmless little guys, And I just don’t see the sense of fearing something that ultimately does good things for the ecosystem. But you know what we should be afraid of?! BEES! BEES ARE TERRIFYING! Look, they’re sucking the blood out of this guy to make honey! HYPERVENTILATES Oh, they’re dying out at an alarming rate? GOOD!!!!! Okay, that was a joke, bees are without a doubt
the most important insect on this planet Not only do they have the best work ethic
of any living thing on Earth, which is why none of them are YouTubers. They also pollinate 30% of the world’s crops Don’t ask me who pollinates the rest, cause I don’t know. Without bees, humanity would turn to pure anarchy. Bees are so important world-famous comedian Jerry Seinfeld made a documentary about the life of a bee, and what the world would be like without them. Ever since 2006, bees, just like the memes say have been “dying at an alarming rate”. The scary thing is that scientists don’t know exactly the reason for this bee-pocalypse. But they think it has something to do with new pesticides being used on farms, parasites that kill the bee, And global warming. So once we’ve figured out how to fix these three problems, we’ll “bee” in good shape! It’s a little bee pun. We like to have “pun” around here. Now what can you, a concerned citizen, to stop the dropping population of bees? Most likely nothing. Cause I don’t think anyone watching this makes laws about pesticides or stopping global warming. So we just gotta sit back and hope the people who make those laws know the importance of bees. But… maybe you should plant a couple of flowers, just to be on the safe side. The reason I have a fear of bees is that I have gotten stung by a bee, Not THREE times, Not FOUR times, BUT TWO TIMES! Two- two times. Now obviously as I’ve grown, I see the importance of bees and I know not to throw rocks at them. The first time I got stung, I was outside, and I guess I was too playing too close to a bee hive ‘Cuz I got stung on my arm, and I cried a lot. The second time I was in my backyard, barefoot, and I was walking around, and- You know how sometimes when you’re about to do something, and your brain realizes you’re about to make a mistake, but your body is already committed to the motion and you don’t have enough time to stop yourself? So I was in the middle of talking a step, and I saw I was about to step on a bee, But my body didn’t have the reaction time or the motor skills to avoid the step and… (and we can all guess what happened after the step) *James cries* I’m sure the bee was just acting in self-defense, but… ..MAN that scarred me! Some people may have an allergic reaction
to bee stings, and they should go to a hospital
if they get stung, but in my case, It just hurt a lot. And my Mom put baking soda over where I got stung, and I cried. When people found out
I was afraid of bees, they would always tell me
that bees are docile creatures, and they only sting you
if they feel threatened. They would say the same thing
about spiders by the way. So whenever I would see a bee, I would silently freak out, and would stay as still as a rock, ‘Cuz unlike spiders, with bees, you’re not allowed to fight back you’ll both lose if that happens. I gotta show this bee how unthreatening I am. They should be able to just look at me and know that. But then, when a bee lands of your arm, HOLY FRICK That’s true fear. You just have to quietly watch the bee, hoping it didn’t just have a bad day and decide to end its life on you. That never happened though. Ever since I took a calm approach to bees, I’ve never been stung, and I’ve never been bitten by a spider either. WASPS THOUGH!!!! THEY’RE JUST MEAN!! They can just pack up and leave
for all I care! I don’t give a crap about wasps. *Wasps attack James* So what did we learn? hmm…… Hey everyone, thanks you so much for watching this video about the spiders and the bees. I know it is kinda a weird topic but, I’ve been traumatised by bees, okay? And I think spiders aren’t as bad as the internet says they are. Me and my merch guys are doing a raffle for the month of March, and the winner of the raffle will get an all expenses paid trip to VidCon in July. And during the convention we can set time aside and have a lunch together, or something? So if your interested then check out the merch store or the link in the description to see how you can enter. Also since you’re here, make sure to check out all the people who worked on this video, they are all amazing and talented and deserve more followers. And I think it’s about time that I created a hashtag on Twitter for the fanart. so starting today if you make fanart then be sure to use the hashtag #ODD1SOUTFANART So I can find it easier! Also I am going to be doing a live show with Domics, Jaiden Animations, Egoraptor and Rubberross on April 26th in LA. The show is called ‘Scribble Showdown’ and we’re going to be playing drawing games live So if that is something you’re interested in, be sure to check out the link in the description. And lastly, I have to thank MatPat and Steph for doing some of the voices in this video. I remember watching MatPat’s stuff before I even started YouTube, and now he’s in one of my videos is just…really really cool! So thank you Matt! And that is it with the announcements. Thank you all for watching. but hey, that’s JUST A THEORY. A BEE THEORY! Wear your seat belt.

  1. It's like if you live Australia what the fuck is tarantulas problem like seriously I'd shit on them if they wanted to sting me

  2. With out the bees we would be fine because there are multiple other bugs that do the same thing which are being killed by bees

  3. Почему все уведомления приходят так поздно?

  4. Well my grandma makes silk dresses for me because she luv me and those silk dresses are strong like I wouldn't try this but I don't think I would be able to cut it with a knife I mean like the silk is very smooth the knife would just slide right off and stab u in the leg but the silk can be cutted but yeah silk can be as strong as steel if layered.

  5. Bees are nice!! Ive held several in my hands and they freak out buzzing around but never sting meh then i free them! And for spiders they are AWESOME! You know the giant garden spiders/banana spiders/orb weavers that are black and yellow abdomens? Well ive held one several times and she nevre threatened me or bit me. She even let me take one of her 4 eggs sacs and i brought it inside and took care of it and only 13 babies came out so i opened the sac and saw ants had got in and eaten the other eggs… i currently have a jumping spider thats eggs just hatched and ive named 41 of them alreadg!!

  6. I'm scared of spiders ONLY because I don't want them in my mouth or up my nose OR UP MY BUTT WHILE IM SLEEPING I love bees tho the amount of bee funerals I've attended WASPS THO

  7. If you're scared of black widows, just know, they tend to stay in swamp areas. Not normally near humans.

  8. I was stung on the back of my neck when I was younger idk why tho like I just wanted seconds for my burgers and all of a sudden I was stung and i screamed 😂

    But I do the same thing (silently panicking whenever a bee, wasp, or hornet comes near me) and more than once (still dunno why they do this) they land on me. So usually silent tears will roll down my face as I don’t move a muscle until it flies away. A lot of the time I’ll hold my breath until it flies away XD.

    But like wasps land in my hair and just sit there. Bees land on my legs and my chest. Hornets seem to like my eyes (and on a separate note butterflies like to land on me too but that’s not a bad thing they just kinda land all over me and I feel very happy when they do so). Literally 4 months ago I was with my dad’s girlfriend at the time and her daughter and we were in the woods. They were picking raspberries (backs turned to me) when a hornet landed on my eye. I immediately close my eyes as I felt it crawling all over my face. Apparently it was like a really bad hornet or somethin like if it stung you it was bad news (and it was on my eye so yee I got lucky). It stayed on my eyelid of my left eye and I’m surprised it didn’t die with all the tears coming out of my eyes. I am stuck in place holding my breath silent tears down my face as thing didn’t move. Without even opening my mouth I let out an ear splitting scream and kept doing that over and over until they turned around and managed to get it off my face.

    So yes I am afraid of bees, hornets, and wasps.

  9. Me: everyone says honey bees cant sting

    Also me: Gets Sting By Honey Bee

    Triple me: now im Scared of bees for 10 years ALREADY WT-

  10. Mosquitoes, or so MALE Mosquitoes, get a bad rap. They do INFACT pollinate flowers, and dont even bite humans.

  11. I’ve been stung by a bee once and I’ve been bit by a black widow but I’m 22 so I’m a healthy adult

  12. I dont think bees are usually scary to people spiders are scary in THEMSELvES even when you know that this one cant even bite you or harm you you still are scared of them. You can look at an image/drawing of a spider and bee scared, but with bees when you see an image and drawing you arent scared. You are scared when one is around you but its not like you fear them like cthulu himself. At least thats how i feel about those.

  13. I know there harmless, but I can't help but be scared because of the series of nightmares I had when I was younger of a spider getting bigger and bigger and eating me and my entire family😅 and like in fine with big spiders like tarantulas, but tiny ones with time legs are scary. Also tiny bugs

  14. I'm scared of spiders because some are massive! Look up the huntsman spider it's as big as an adult meal plate! And it's as fast as a Camel spider! ITS TERRIFYING!!

  15. The only time I've been stung by a Hornet was when my dog was pulling me on the leash through someone's yard and I tried to pull him back and he ran me right into a ground hornet nest and I got stung over 17 times… not fun

  16. We had the emergency exit open a little bit on the bus to let some air through on the trip home and a bee got flung through it and the kid in the middle seat at the very back and he was wearing long pants and it got him directly in the middle of the knee

  19. My mom almost died from brown recluse spider!

    She got bit on her finger and her whole arm turned black. She almost lost her finger but they fortunately were able to save it and her after 4 days of a heavy morphine drip.

    She's dead now though… Not from the spider, but from a heart attack in her sleep. So, It was peaceful at least.

  22. Why is everyone so afraid of bees? When I ask why they say: 'I've been stung.'
    I've been stung like a million times, but I still love these guys. When they're tired I feed them, when It's way too cold outside I let them fly around in my room, etc…
