We get a fair few black spiders & white-tails & they automatically get a death sentence. (Spray with Mortein & a solid few whacks with a shoe or magazine). If I don't recognise the type the spider gets the above treatment too.
I like huntsman spiders & daddy-longlegs. They can stay (until DH sees them & asks me to deal with them lol).

Nope, I don't kill them. If it were a whitetail or redback I would make someone else kill it as I wouldn't risk my child or pet's safety. I don't kill things just because I don't like them, isn't that why we have males to do heroic things like relocate creepy crawlies? Maybe spending half my childhood in Buddhist countries had some impact. I've killed a couple of mozzies in my lifetime as I hate the little pricks but the guilt just isn't worth it!

We are spider killers in this house. I usually let daddy long legs live but that's only until DP see it and he insists they also be gone. DP does the spider killing for me though, despite the fact he hates them just as much as me! Haven't seen a huntsman in this house yet, knock on wood.

I will read the posts later, but I have to put my hand up for not killing spiders. I have no fear of them, but I get a bit annoyed when they take up residence in my kitchen sink. I have two bowls, so I have had one living in the one side while I do all the washing up in the other sink. A bit annoying, but I still let him be. My grandkids, always say "is that one of your spiders grandma?", as if they were pets of mine. haha, marie.

Huntsmans, no. If you're conerned about spiders in your house (and there will inevitably be plenty) then leaving huntsmans be is one of the best things you can do...they'll kill the others!
Anyway, no, they'll be put outside if they're too close to where the kids hang out/here we sleep, but otherwise we leave them be.

Yes I kill them, especially huntsman spiders! We moved to a farm and I've seen more spiders here in the 3 months since moving in than I saw the entire time I lived at my old house.

I am never going to understand why people are so scared of spiders. They are so small.
