When you kill a spider, do you flush it down the toilet or put it in the trash?

A lot of people I know use toilet paper to smush spiders. A friend of mine once thought she had smashed one really good, but an hour later it crawled out of the trash can! Is it better to flush them? Where do you throw your spiders?

  • I always flush. I don't want some zombie spider coming after me when I'm asleep. Not that I really believe in zombies LOL but I want to make good and sure that sucker is out of my house.

  • Smash or spray, then vacuum or sweep it outside. Cats usually get it though.

  • I usually just go get my cat and tell him 'snack time'! And that pretty much takes care of it.

  • I don't kill spiders. They're good for killing bugs.

  • We pay for water. I will not waiste water on a spider. So I either throw it out side or in the trash.

  • I usually don't kill spiders

    other bugs though, I throw them in the toilet and flush. I can't stand the thought of squishing them *shudder*

  • I leave spiders alone unless they are unusually large & then I put them outside. Spiders kill the bad bugs. I have a pet spider that's over two years old in my bathroom. He only comes out at night.

  • I only leave spiders alone if they're outside!
    If they're inside, they get flushed!
