What's your favorite way to kill spiders?

One has decided to scramble across the floor and much later into my bed and onto me. I'm plotting his demise as we speak but have limited resources since I'm staying away from home at the Ronald McDonald houses.

  • The slow and not-so-bog ones, I squish in a paper towel. Anything fast or big, i call my husband! LOL

  • Well the only spiders I kill are the poisonous ones. Yesterday I killed a black widow with a shoe. If they aren't poisonous I leave them alone.

  • I catch them and put them outside. I'm not afraid of them and know they're great for insect control. Heck, they don't know they're not supposed to be in your house, lol. I just put them out where they belong.

  • I usually just pick them up with a piece of cardboard or something and put them outside...I'm not much for killing
    if there is a bug I want to kill-I'll put it in the toilet and flush it away...

  • My husband if he is home or else a heavy shoe.  If the spider is out of my reach, a squirt of hairspray brings it back down.

  • Scream and run to get either Dh or my Ds, LOL......I'm deathly afraid of spiders. Besides I'm in Florida and we have some scary looking ones. I once saw a house spider that was as big as my 5 yr old's hand. I freaked, lol.

    My brave Dh and Ds have gotten good at saving us and don't seem to mind too much, lol

  • I like the satisfaction of personally killing it. I like to see it all squishy on the floor after I stomp on it!
