Would you flush the toilet or take it out and put it out of the window (save it).

I saved the spider from the loo yesterday. When I was younger I used to flush the poor things done the loo. Feel so bad I used to do that!

How old are you? Don’t you feel guilty about killing a spider? It did you no wrong afterall!

21 and no I don't.

There was a spider on my wall right next to my pillow and I squashed it with a shoe, was glad to have it gone. The lives of tiny creatures doesn't matter to me.

Spiders make webs that fly about and hit your face or make a mess in a webby, dusty corner. If I had a button that would kill all the spiders in the world I'd press it with no regrets.

But they eat flies and flies are infinitely more annoying (and disease ridden), buzzing around your ears and sitting on your food! I'm friends with any spider I come across.
The ones that don't make webs (the fast ones) prey on other insects, such as woodworm or ants which destroy your house/furniture. All spiders are beneficial to have in the house, can't you see that?

Happened to me once, so I chucked a stick between the toilet lid and bowl, so when it closed it wouldn't close fully, so the spider would come up and I'd vacuum the spider if it isn't facing me in my direction and then pump it out the window, otherwise I'll have to shoot the thing with water for it to move into a different position or something in the bowl until I can do it then suck it up and pump it out.

If it was in the toilet I'd flush it down but I normally catch them and throw them out of the window :spider:

No, flies annoy me but they don't scare me. I cannot stand spiders, they are too creepy.

Tarantulas can be quite pretty (gooty sapphire tatantula). I dont find them scary depite them being bigger than true spiders. They look more animal like than true spiders like huntsmans and wolf spiders which look so creepy and alien.
Moths are the thinhs i hate they terrify me, reguarly splat them

i cant stand cobwebs. makes me sick. and spiders crawl everywhere up and down walls, ceilings. not just the floor. flies arent stationary and hide for long. eventually when you open a window it will leave.
GUYS THE MOST EFFICIENT WAY TO KILL A SPIDER IS TO GET ONE OF THOSE ELECTRIC TENNIS RACKETS FOR FLIES. IT BURNS THEM ALIVE AND NO MESS FROM SQUASHING OR CLEAN UP OR LETTING IT GET AWAY WHEN ATTEMPTING TO GRAB BY TISSUE, OR WORRYING ABOUT MAKING KIDS INSIDE YOUR HOOVER
