Terrifying! 'Scratching noise' in woman's ear caused by spider weaving web

An ear, nose and throat specialist discovered that a spider had been weaving a web in her ear canal. The spider was resting on her eardrum. Each attempt doctors made to remove the spider caused it to react violently, resulting in more pain for Meng.

Doctors were able to drug the spider and pull it out with tweezers. I don’t know about you, but I’m going to be using Q-tip’s a lot more frequently now.
