Depends... I squish everything... First or last... Although if one of my babies was to tell me to not do it, I'd get it to go outside.

Whatever I have handy lol. Shoe, toilet paper, swatter, raid (if the babies aren't near me & I open a window asap if I do that) Just not a fan of creepy crawlies in the house =)

I have a major fear of spiders, so yes they are dead if they even think of coming inside. I used to be so scared that I would yell for someone else to kill them. Now, I'm scared to death they will get to my baby. So, I kill them myself. I am such a baby about it. I have to use a fly swatter or something long enough so I don't have to get close. I have found that hairspray works good too. Just spray the crap out of it then scoop it up and flush. Only problem with that is have to mop the floor to get hairspray up.
