depends on location, type, size.......l actually don't mind them. they eat other bugs. I do prefer they stay outside though.

if its up high...it gets the vaccuum. if its little and on the floor i'll get it on a paper plate an put it outside.

the only place i have seen big ones is in the bathtub...and they unfortunately do get drowned.

I actually can't bring myself to smash them...something about the squish, crunch, and gut cleanup is worse.

Well I can't say I fear them, but they throw me off guard. Lol I just would rather get them before they get me. Cuz the spiders we have here are big and creepy!

Never thought about relocating them outside instead of squashing them?:-)

i just said i drown ones in the bathtub....and im pretty sure the vaccum kills them too lol....and i kill slugs in my garden...and flies in the kitchen...sure i kill bugs...but only if they are *buggin* me. i just don't usually squish them like in your options.
