I only have one rule for them and that is that if they want to live in my house they must never show themselves to me or they get squished. The ones that respect the rules of the house are welcomed to stay.
I have the same rule! Honestly, I hate spiders. I've been having a terrible problem with wolf spiders (big ones) in my garage. At least 4 have come inside the house. Those ones are too big for me to step on, I have to grab the Raid. And if the spider is between me and the Raid, I am at a loss for what to do. I am completely paralyzed with fear.

Hmmm...maybe I'll go on over and read that thread YHWH started about fear...

I had a cat that brought in part of a squirrel one time! Then, I had to go after it, under my bed, because the silly cat dragged it there! Needless to say, although I'm not really squeamish, that was somewhat disgusting.

I go with that same rule, myself. Unfortunately, for the wolf spiders, they apparently haven't read the same rulebook, because I frequently find them in my house, trying to take up residency. Needless to say, their occupancy doesn't last long! As soon as I spot one, I'm grabbing a slipper or shoe, (preferably my husband's or son's, because they wear size 14 and 13, respectively). Some of those things make you feel like you're on a big game safari; they're huge! And, they don't just scurry, they jump! And, the worst thing of all is, I am the hunter, because my big brave husband and son, (6'8" and 6'4") give me the job!

Well, I can be thankful that my husband gladly kills them for me.

Last week, I was in the garage and one that I sprayed didn't die, but wedged itself underneath my front tire. I just got in my car and put it in reverse. That did the trick.

My husband is still calling me a big chicken. I was really proud of myself for killing it.

My grandmother always said that it was bad luck to kill a spider in the house. She said that they killed the baby roaches. I always leave them alone in the hopes that she was right. I don't need bad luck and I sure don't want cockroaches!!! I'll settle for spiders anytime.

Hey, any way that you can get the job done is a good thing, in my book!

I've heard that one before. I surely don't need bad luck, and I certainly don't want roaches, (baby or otherwise), in my house either, but I just can't handle sitting on my couch, minding my own business, watching tv, and suddenly see a movement out of the corner of my eye, and see this big ole wolf spider sauntering across the floor like he owns it! I get the heebie jeebies, just thinking about him, (or her), making that same journey across my bed, with me in it!. I don't bother them when I see them outside; I figure I'm in their territory then, but by golly, I'm not having any eight-legged squatters in my house!

i would like to address that. we had a plague of black widows at my house.
then we had a lot of lizards show up. no more spiders.
as to misquitos. i got to think a bit on that one. i know they provide a whole lot of food for bats. now dont ask me about bats please.
as to not killing he was talking about people. and you must admit we are doing pretty good with that most of the time. less killing i mean.
so please dont let a spider make an atheist out of you.
and get a pest control guy to help you.
thanks
