  • I suck it up with the vacuum hose...then I vacuum around the room a bit to make sure that its being pummeled with enough dirt to kill it!

  • I think I just realized I must be a tomboy, I would just pick up a shoe and kill it. And then pick it up and check it out..Killed a pregnant spider once and all these lil spiders spewed out now that was cool

  • In the summer time in Iowa you get these HUGEEEEEE ones that just about make you want to crawl out of your skin! It's soooo disgusting, I bug fog like every six months just because I don't want them in my house! As for killing them, I have two AWESOME boys who are more than willing to take care of business, otherwise I would have to use one of DH shoes (why do we all seem to always pick the biggest shoes in the house!) Or I have hairsprayed, bug repellent (like OFF bug spray that you put on your self) ew ew ew!

  • Ladies, no joke, after I posted this another one was crawling on my ceiling, and I sprayed that one too! It fell into my clear pot with flowers in it---now it looks like a frozen piece of decoration! My husband just called, and I told him that spiders were attacking the house!

  • An electric tennis racket.

    These are AWESOME! I would never kill a spider before we got some of these. Now - hah! They're dead!

  • Holy hell, that question made my spine tingle!!! Blah! I am terrified of spiders! I run screaming like a banshee from them. When I was a young girl, I trapped one in a tupperware bowl once and waited for my Dad to get home to kill it. He couldn't stop laughing. I also refused to walk out my door one morning when my ride to school got there because there was a spider on the glass door. He had to get out and find something to kill it with...then I ran so fast out that door I almost fell! I sooo support the hairspray method! LOL! Done it myself!

  • That's right! My husband came home and said he isn't in the mood to kill spiders-----and that he's not surprised since when he went under the house he said their were all kinds of EGG SACKS!!! EWWWW!!!!
