Depending on the spider I find. As long as they're not black widows, I either leave them alone or carefully pick them up with a paper towel or napkin and throw them outside.

Generally, I leave it alone. If it were dangerous, I'd throw it outside. I've never understood why people are so damned scared of spiders... it's not like they go out of their way to bite you. Besides, they keep the bugs that actually annoy me in check, like say, mosquitoes and flies?

Usually nothing. If they're in the way (was one on m keyboard the other day) I'll catch them and put them aside.

They have their job. As long as they don't have a red hourglass oh their shiny black abdomen. I'll let them alone to do that job.....like kill annoying mosquitos.

Kill it with fire. Fortunately, I've never had to deal with one bigger than a wolf spider.
Spiders are disgusting, imo.

Try to pick it up with a piece of paper, or just stare at it ~

I'm usually not that afraid of common household spiders so I'm the first to kill it however if it's a big hairy one I'll probably call for help on that job.

Normally it's a combination of 2, 4, and 5. I kill it, look for more, then quarantine the room for good measure. Can never be too sure if it's poisonous, or just a bastard that will scare me half to death by waking me up while I'm sleeping, so the spider must be punished for making me worry in the first place.

Sometimes all of the above! Depends on size, how close it is to Me, and It's intent! Haha, Yes I DO mean I'm talking about reading the Spiders mind of what He/She is planning upon doing to Me.

they say killing spiders is bad luck..i never believed it until one day i came across a spider and i killed it..that same day soon after i killed it i busted my knee....since then i have not killed a spider willingly...mostly just if someone beg me to get rid of it or there is a small child around...but i become superstitious about killing spiders...

I'm pretty much apathetic towards spiders, since the ones around here don't hurt me. Whether they live or die is up to the others in my house, and how they react. Although, since spiders are usually solitary creatures (for the most part), if there are more than 2 of them in the same room, it usually means there's some hole are entrance where other bugs can get in the house.

I kill them on the spot, except for daddy long legs, I quite like them. And the reason why I kill the other spiders, is because I get a really bad reaction towards spider bites, and I am never too sure which ones I am allergic to, but for sure I do know that daddy long legs have never bitten me, and they are actually quite cool to look like.

Also, did you know that they are venomous to other spiders (well if they bite other spiders)? Pretty darn cool



I think I heard somewhere that daddy long legs are actually venomous enough to kill a human. It's just that their fangs or whatever they bite with aren't big or sharp enough to penetrate human skin.
