Just curious.

I know a lot of my friends kill spiders the second they see them. It's like spiders are their arch-enemies or something. I, on the other hand, just let them be, if they are not harming me. I see no reason to kill a creature that doesn't harm me. Sometimes, I even look at the spiders & watch their movements

What about you?

Spiders aren't annoying, so as long as they don't get too close I'll leave them alone.



 

 

 

I usually get a glass and a piece of paper, capture it, then fling it outside. I can't stand the thought of a spider being in my room and crawling over my face at night.

There's also a particular type of spider that really freaks me out, the big, long legged, hairy ones that move startlingly fast. I go into sort of a hunter/prey mindset whenever I see one of them.

I think I'd have a heart attack if I was in an enclosed, dark place with a lot of them.



A thing of beauty, strength, and grace lies behind that whiskered face.

depends on the spider

one of these guys would care to much

one of these.....I'm moving



I pick it up and take it outside, because I feel the need to protect it from my family members...

Seriously, it bugs me that people jump on the "It scares me so it deserves to die" bandwagon. As a race, I thought we were supposed to be 'better' than that.

I usually introduce them to my cats. I'll occasionally set them free, if they're by a window or something.



I've seen too many spider bites when I was a jailer and even on my current job so if a spider is in my house, I can't just let it run free. Usually, I'll catch it in a bottle cap or something and let it go free to tell all of the other spiders of my act of kindness. It seems to be working because I've walked through spider webs before and I've never been bitten by one.

I used to enjoy compromising an insect (damage its wing or something) and tossing them into a spider web and watching the spider do its thing. Good fun. Of course, there was that one time this past summer where I caught a spider, opened my door to let the spider out, and a fucking bee flew into my house. It was all part of their plan, I imagine. I suspect the bee put the spider up to it. I killed the bee (much worse than a spider, in my opinion) and let the spider go.

Bee didn't even offer me any honey in exchange for his life. Selfish ass bee.

I freak out, stare at it for 5 minutes, and then pluck up enough courage to drop one of my sisters magazines on it.

I don't think you get it.

If somebody has a phobia of spiders (enter me), you can't leave it because you will be on the edge of your seat, some people are too afraid to pick it up or scoop it up and throw it outside and if you do that then the odds are they will be back in your house the next day. Spiders are pests, and where I live, if you don't keep their numbers under control you can end up with an infestation. I don't see the harm in killing an insect.



The vacuum cleaner is my best weapon against spiders in my house.

I hate spiders...
