  • I have a pool and we get several tyes of spiders in it through out the evenning hours. They walk on top of the water!!! So I don't know about drown, but my chlorine usually gets them in the end. LOL

  • spiders can drown but it takes a while. i think if you put it down the drain and run the water for a minute, it probably can't crawl back out.

  • Id run hot water down the drain to be safe! I HATE spiders and once they get the HOT water, they cringe in fear and shrink up to nothingness! LOL

    Hot water will kill them for sure!
