When you see a spider do you.......gently let it outside OR smash it gone for good?

Posted by   + Show Post

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.

Spiders that are in the house and endangered because of where they are are gently captured and put outdoors in clement weather, if the weather is inclement they are removed to the garage. We never kill them.

I smash the nasty creature!  If I'm brave enough to even go near it... I HATE spiders!  Even pictures of spiders creep me out... even thinking about spiders, right now, creeps me out! NASTY!

Usually, I just let them go, but if the spider is on the ceiling above the bed and it's bedtime, it dies.

Same as momdoes.

If its in the house, it dies. If its outside, it lives.

It depends. If its a poisonous one, I kill it right away. If its a daddy long leg, I give a 1 week stay....if it doesn't move on by them, it gets put outside. I like them because they're more scared of me than I am of it, and they kill other bugs n stuff like that...

Spiders here are either jumpy....they get squashed.  Or FREAKIN' HUGE - they get sprayed, then sprayed again, then squashed.

We get these......camel spiders (this is a smallish one - not a picture I took)

Grab the Raid and spray his butt dead. He would not survive in my house!
