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 used to kill spiders and insects in my home, but now I scoop them up or trap them and put them outside.  They're just trying to survive also :-)

It depends on the size of the spider.  I usually use a few wet papertowels balled up. lol

 Ok...I am going to admit this...I WILL NEVER, EVER kill a spider with only a tissue/paper towel.  Won't ever happen.  If I could use a blow torch and not damage anything...that's what I would use!!

I have a major irrational fear of spiders.  It takes me a couple of minutes of preparing myself, to kill one with a fly swatter or shoe.  Lots of coaxing and telling myself that the damn thing won't jump or fall on me.  Which is why, when hubby is home, I make him kill the spider(s).

I use the vacuum cleaner, or I bug collect them with a jar and a paper and put them back outside.  I don't particularly like spiders, but I would rather not squish them onto my walls.

If the spider is small....I have no problem using a tissue.  If it is bigger though....I use a shoe or boot.
