  • capture it with a glass or bowl and return it to nature, far from your house though! ;)
  • I tend to run in the opposite direction.
  • I would run away from it, terrified of what it could do to me. Damn arachnophobia
  • I would probably get a glass jar but not catch it. i would throw the glass jar at it.lol
  • I would like to think I have the courage to kill it, but no...I run screaming. I HATE spiders.
  • I have a rule for spiders. if they are on the ceiling or wall (like Huntsmen) they get a reprieve and get put outside, but if they are on my floors, there is no mercy. Our Aussie version of the black widow, the red-back, is a feral spider anyway, so I have no qualms about killing it.
  • My son will release em back into nature. I kill them. The fate of the spider depends on who sees it first.
  • If it was a poisionous spider. I would call an exterminator and then leave the house until they could come. Any other types I either leave alone or put them outside.
  • Capture it and return it back to nature far away from my home:-)
  • I don't think we have wolf spiders here, but if a black widow is in my house - sorry, but I kill it. I sometimes see other spiders in the house, and I usually either let 'em be (they catch bugs) or, if they're big enough to bother with, I catch them and put them outside. Once in a while I kill a harmless spider, but I always feel sorry about it.
  • I capture them and put them back outside. I like spiders and my son likes to watch them run.
  • I have been bitten by brown recluse spiders twice and a black widow once (I have never seen one of those inside). I know someone who was bitten by a wolf spider...I kill those three. Grass and garden spiders are creepy but harmless.
  • Since a Black Widow is potentially harmful to my family (especially the small children), I kill them. The variety Wolf spider in my part of the world, to my knowledge, is only harmful to other insects. I leave them alone.
  • I don't do anything with spiders I can identify as posionus enough to kill me. Thats why I got married. If my husband could do it safley, I would want him to let it outside.
  • Potential threats I kill, others I return to nature.
  • I would have to evacuate the house until someone else came along who could capture it, I would tell them repeatedly however, NOT to kill it but to take it as far away as possible and let it go.
  • Non-dangerous spiders are escorted outside. Dangerous spiders are captured in the vacuum cleaner. My wife and children are all hysterically frightened of spiders of any type. So I get all spider duty. We also get a fair number of tarantulas in the house. I love them and usually play with them awhile before escorting them outside. They will crawl up your arm with no problem it you do not threaten them. They can be stroked from front to back only. If you stroke back to front the hairs will stick you like a porcupine quill. It is difficult to enjoy a tarantula visit while the wife is screaming, "take it outside, I don't care how cute it is, you know I don't like this..."
  • Id take it in a glass jar, and ship it to fear factor
  • just pick em up and put em out side.
  • black widows are left alone but those wolf spiders are sooo damn creepy i have to kill them.im not worried about being bitten i just dont like em.sorry
  • I capture Spiders in a tissue or in the case of something that bits a cloth and put them outside.
  • I try to put the back outside, but If the spider is running and I don't have time to get a glass to capture it, I might kill it if it seems like a threatening kind of spider. We have a cabin in Mammoth. A couple of years we went to the cabin, there were hundreds of wolf spiders in there. They would be all over the place. They'd be under the sheets, in the showers, and all over the basement. I found one that was the size of my hand with its legs spread out. Wolf spiders are harmless, so there is no reason to kill them, but as a kid, it was pretty frightening.
  • I plead the 5th. My wife hates spiders and will kill them all. Especially those that leave webs in the house for friends and neighbors to see.
  • Is there really a conscionable choice here? ;-)
  • The simple fact is All spiders are only interested in biting other insects, not warm-blooded mammals (like us). You can handle most spiders without fear of a bite if they are allowed to be in the open and not cornered (including Black Widows who are not aggressive). Spiders relate to your hand the same as the ground or other objects. Only small, quick vibrating insects will be bitten, their bite is not a natural defense, running away is.

  • i kill it, sorry.
  • I usually just leave to its business, but if it was this big ass poisonous thing, I'd go all Xena on that shit...if it didn't kill me first. I don't want no death spider of doom walking around my kitchen.
  • I would stomp it dead.....sorry -I do love all that nature has to offer but that would be a little close for comfort.
  • HULK SMASH!
