  • Make sure you have several shoes to throw for each time you miss it! Or stand on a chair and hit it with a book.

  • try spraying it with somthing ( hair spray or somthing ) kinda knock it off it's feet , then hitting it with a rolled up newpaper. Wouldn't do any good to call my hubby , cause he is scared to death of them to. So that is how I kill them when he yells.. LOL

  • I share your fear!!!! OMG!!! I would sleep in the other room, any other room!!!!
    Seriously, i've done it before. Last month there was a spider on my bedroom floor, i killed it though. With ll kinds of screamming to myself and jumping around like a dumbass!!! Then i slept on the couch for 2 weeks......lmfao!!! I HATE SPIDERS,,,,uckkk! Killed it with the baby wipes case.

    For you, if your braver than me.....i would try a cup and a peice of paper. Trap it with the cup and then slide the paper over the top before you move the cup. GOOD LUCK TO YA> :D

  • I dont have anything to spray it with. ...no hair spray or air freshinor. ...i dont use those products. ...

    and screaming and jumping around like a dumbass is deffinantly more my style then getting close enough to catch it in a cup. lol
    ugh. ...freaky thing/. i dont know what to do. luckily it has stopped moving. ...i think it's trying to sleep or something. ...but i dont want it there!

  • RUN! lol.
    I'm such a wimp when it comes to bugs. I get my parents to kill them when they're around or my friends.

  • btw. it's like the size of a nickle ...which in my opinion is pretty big! .,..if it were smaller i'd have already dealt with it somehow. ...
    .
    i cant just go up and squash it. what if it jumps on me? ...i had a black widow almost jump on me once. that was a very scary day.
