Can you kill a spider just by squishing it with a tissue?

Do you dare to kill a spider just with a kleenex/paper? Don't you hate that crunching?

I use a shoe.  I was at work one day and saw this odd liooking spider in the breakroom, had one of the electrician's kill it and alllllll these little babies that were on her back took off in every direction so I would NEVER use a tissue - feet stomping it is!

O man, just reading that creeps me out. Everyone knows i'm paranoid of spiders. We have wood spiders at the lake and they are nasty looking and get big. I buy spider spray and spray the rooms. If DH or anyone else isn't around to kill it, I get my spray.

What are wood spiders?  We have those creepy wolf spiders (Look like small tarantulas - blech)...Let's say I was on the table in no time flat when the babies scattered and so was the electrician LOL

I hate spiders but if I have to I kill them. Shoe is preferable but will use whatever handy. Wish dh was around more often to take care of it for me but he works 60+ hrs/wk.

After doing some searching. (which i'm totally creeped out now,lol) I believe it's wolf spiders, not wood. The guy's alway's called it a wood spider. In the woodshed (which i'll never go in) had a huge one. Even my big bad BIL was freaked out about it. LOL.   My poor daughter was going to the bathroom and saw one crawling. It was huge. Poor thing came running out of the bathroom crying and stumbling. I grabbed a towel and started stomping on it.( didn't have time to grab the spray it was downstairs) With the legs spread out it was half the size of my hand.  In the fall the markets sell these green ball things. Not sure what they are called. I bought a couple not sure if they worked. Had a couple small spiders in the house.

THIS!  I do not kill spiders, about 5 years ago I had this spider that I hit with a shoe and it looked like it was dead so I walked away when I came back it was up walking again so I tried again same thing it looked squashed and then started running and I lost it! I guess I was paranoied it would come back and get me so I left and never again do I kill spiders!
