A man took to Reddit to warn people to check their shoes before putting them on, especially if you live in an area where insects rule.

A man from upstate New York says bugs are an issue for him at his home where he lives in a heavily wooded area. With that being said, he’s cautious about bugs in and around his home and frequently will check his shoes before putting them on.

However, one morning while running late for a gym session he put his shoes on quickly and headed out. Once at the gym he changed shoes to begin his squat session when hundreds of tiny spiders ran from his shoes.

“I freaked out and dropped the shoe only to realize that mama spider was wedged between my toes and there were alive and dead baby spiders on my socks,” said the man.
