I just found a spider in my dryer and I couldn't do much, but let it go.......it got me thinking about what others might do.
I trap them and let them go outside. (I usually put a paper cup over them, and then slide a piece of paper underneath, then quickly flip the cup over, holding the paper over the top of the cup.) Spiders are beneficial insects as they trap and eat lots of bugs, so I don't kill them.
I was bit on the ankle by a sac spider a few years ago. It was incredibly painful-it felt like a needle was being jammed into my ankle, and a hot match was being held on my skin. This pain did not stop for nearly an hour. (I took benedryl to counter act the venom, and then I felt better. I called poison control, and they told me to do this.) The spot where I was bit was itchy for an entire month, and red for six months! And yet, despite this, I did not kill the spider that bit me. (I had trapped it in a cup, in case I had problems later, I would know what type of spider bit me.) I really wanted to smash him to death, for the trouble he casued me, but I figured he was just being a spider, and probably bit me as I startled him. (I had moved something he was behind-he jumped out and bit me.)
I have been bitten two times since then , both times while gardening. Once, I got a skin infection which needed a doctors visit, and the other time my foot swelled up so bad I had to go to the ER. Spiders apparently like to bite me, and yet I still don't kill them. I just try and do a better job of staying away from them.
