Some people ( not me) are really brave and manage to kill spiders by just squishing them with a kleenex! I mostly just leave the room when I encounter a bug! What do u do?

Is quite embarrassing sometimes. I actually left a 'holy shit!' Voicemail on someone's voicemail.. At work. . Because of a Spider. I caked back to apologize. She thought it was hilarious though.

Bug spray & vacuum, I cannot get close enuf to actually hit them. I need to b several feet away. I've also thrown large books at them & then been terrified to move the book to find out if it was dead & had to throw thw book away bc of the bug guts all over the cover-ew!

It depends what kind of bug. I am generally okay with anything that flies and just use a fly swatter. Beatles I will kill with a kleenex. Spiders however are another story....If a spider is in the room, I am long gone and my SO takes care of it for me. I honestly have no idea why I am so terrified of spiders but I will honestly cry if one is on me.

 I stomp on them if they are on the floor.

stomp, squish, fly swatter, shoe anything with flames and raid. Hair spray works too and for wasps and nests.. some good ol spray adhesive glue ;) They stick to the nest and die or drop

I should clarify what I voted.

I kill bugs. I don't kill spiders. because spiders will eat all the bugs that can harm a human. Seriously. they are good to have around. Most spiders don't even bite  humans. The daddy long legs spider is poisonous to the point that it would kill an adult human to be bit by one, but they can't bite us because their mouths are too small. plus they aren't aggressive spiders.
