Today I refused to kill a spider in my daughters room! I want her to learn how to do it herself. She will soon be a grown woman, and I think she needs to be able to kill her own spiders! Or am I wrong about this?

I did when they were little and they would beg for the spiders life. It was a way for me to get them to do their own dirty work. I use a napkin and in the trash it goes I don't have time to be chasing spiders with a cup so it can come back in two days.

Quoting jenna30:

But why dont u release them too? And do u smash with a napkin?


Quoting bribren:

I'm not afraid I just don't like them in my house. Smashing them is my method of choice. LOL

Quoting jenna30:



Are u afraid of them? How do you kill them?


Quoting bribren:


They catch and release. I kill so usually they won't even tell me because they have soft hearts for spiders.

He's a catch and release too. It's in his culture not to kill spiders. It is considered bad luck.

My husband and children are Native American spiders are considered to be intelligent and skillful. There are many uses for spiders webs I on the other hand am not NA so I have no qualms about killing spiders.

Either a shoe or a tissue ... squish !!! I just killed a small spider this morning in my bathroom.. I looked at him for a few moments thinking to myself he doesn't have long to live and he doesn't even know it. I felt like the mean giant that was gonna get him .. I had to tell myself bugs don't belong in the house...and what if it bit my daughter ect.     Seconds later ... squish !!
