Huntsmans in particular?
I have a decent sized huntsman in my house atm. We get quite a lot of them.
The one I saw this morning was on/in/under my lounge. I tried to spray it but it had hidden by the time I did. Anyway I ended up being late to work due to this bl00dy thing so it came up in conversation, and a couple of people were horrified that I had tried to kill it, and that I should have just left it be, or caught it and brought it outside.
The reason it's here in the first place is because it wandered in when my mum was here and she always tries to catch and release spiders, but well that was a fail wasn't it, it was too quick and ran under the lounge. So here I am, constantly looking over my shoulder, impatiently awaiting round 3 with this spider...
I just want it gone because my kids freak out. DD in particular can't sleep for hours if she knows there's a spider in the house. I would love to stuff around and catch and release it but really I just need the quickest way to get rid of it, which is usually to kill it.
So... am I cruel? What do you do with your spidey friends?
