  • They never die!!! I try to kill spiders all the time and they still get up and run away!!! Even if I pour bleach and spray lysol on them.

    And, some people consider it animal cruelty... but I think it's more because they aren't so big and end up in the creepiest part of your home! Of course, anywhere you see a spider, it becomes creepy! lol

  • Not trying to sound mean to you or anything but i think i worry more about cows, chickens and other farm animals that are being treated cruel just to feed us cheaply before worrying about a spider.
    Spiders live their happy life & WACK dead.... We dont torture them in cages before stomping them...

  • I agree with MommaTasha but if you smash a spider hard and fast, I'm sure he wouldn't mind. Or she wouldn't mind so much.
