    Because they are afraid that spiders might bite them.

    Its a learned fear. I think its also lack of knowledge and understanding of them. I know a lot of people who are very worried that a spider will bite them and kill them. Most are pretty harmless and everyone that I know that is scared of being bitten by one never has been bitten by one because they just don't bite often. I have never even been bitten by one and I like to pick them up.

    You inherit fears, one of your parents or both of them didn't like spiders or whoever the person was brought up by.
