Do you need a man to kill a spider?

Posted by   + Show Post
I've always been proud of being able to take care of myself, but when it comes to spiders... Do you kill your own spiders?

Ewwww....no way!


Quoting jenna30:

Yuck! Then I guess u never smush spiders in a paper towel?;-)




Quoting Stephd710:

Have you seen a Missouri wolf spider? A fly swatter will just piss it off. It takes at least three whacks with a boot for it to die.






Quoting jenna30:

Dont u have a fly swatter?








Quoting Stephd710:

Hell yes!!!! But I'm single, and there is no way I'm going to let it live and roam around my house where I can't see it ....so I suck it up and murder it.










Quoting jenna30:

Are u afraid of them?












Quoting Stephd710:

I have spider spray. But that does NOT work on those giant mean wolf spider bastards! They get pissed and come AT you!!! I have to smash them with a shoe.

Use a fly swatter?


Quoting chikaboombeads:

Nope...spiders are one of my biggest irrational fears. My boys like to kill them for me...it makes them feel 'tough'.  I am a big baby!!!!

yep, and no I do not get near the spiders, I have nightmares about them, and my husband has to wipe down the bed before I get back in.

Yeah, no problem with those. I'm also cool with snakes, not scared at all. I just don't do spiders.
