@Ishmael, *screaming in the distance*
here's how I deal with spiders...
big fuzzy wolf spiders: squash
those tiny furry black spiders: shoo them away
Garden spiders: put them outside
Any spider in the sink: instant squash
any spider in the shower: instant spray or squash
Small spider on the wall: shoo it away
big spider on the wall: squash
any spider above eye level on a wall: BURN IT ALL! (I feel intimidated when I have to look up to see them)
Mama spiders (baby spiders, no extra charge): a combination of a blowtorch and a broom.
One time i squished a mama spider and all the babies crawled out and I didn't know what to do so I got a flip flop in one hand and a broom in the other. I never want to relive that Horrific moment when I see a million little black dots begin their invasion of earth.
