A SPIDER hater was horrified to find one living in his ear.
Liam Gomez, 27, who had earlier disturbed a nest full of baby spiders, woke up with a blocked lughole.
He felt dizzy and unbalanced and could hear a faint scratching in his head.
Liam put olive oil in his ear and probed it with a cotton bud. He removed the bud to find a spider’s leg stuck to it.
Self-professed arachnophobe Liam, of Folkestone, Kent, said: “My initial reaction was just to get the bloody thing out as fast as possible. I was obviously revolted as I hate spiders.
“I arrived home from work on Tuesday to discover a spider’s nest above my front door, with lots of hatchlings. I swept them away with a broom.
“The next morning, I woke with blocked ears and vertigo, so I called in sick to work.
“A couple of hours later I could still feel the sensation, but also hear a faint scratching sound, so I decided to investigate with a cotton bud.
“It came out clean, apart from a single leg. I used a hairpin and the bud to retrieve the spider, making sure to count the legs coming out, then made sure to give my ear a good clean.

“The irony is — I’m a web designer for a living.
“I can only presume one from the nest I cleared snuck into my ear. I’m really hoping it didn’t have to chance to lay eggs.”
Liam has vowed to wear ear muffs to avoid a repeat.
