I don't squish spiders, none of them really bug you here. But I do squish any bug that will bite me, mosquitos, blackflies, deerflies, horseflies, bees ect. I hate to be itchy

Take care,

I didnt vote. I dont want to sound like I go out of my way killing insects.
I kill earwigs in the house, wasps that hover in the doorway, recluse/hobo spiders(inside or out), some spiders in the house.

I let the jumping spiders stay, they grow really big in the house, and it makes me wonder what insects they are getting fat on .

There was some 'mommy' long legs(not daddy long legs, but some other long legged spider that dd named) in the washroom, that I decided to just leave, but the other night, I get up, go pee, go back to bed, and the biggest one that was in the washroom-and disapeared the day before-is running on the bed, it came out of a fold in the sheet where I was sleeping , so it died.

If they're in my house, they're getting squished. Outsided I pretty much leave em alone. I hate spiders though. Hate hate hate them. Of course, living in an old apartment and now an old house, you kind of have to get used to them.

I kill black widows.
Others I leave be, unless there is a chance they could be a brown recluse (kill first, ask questions later). Tarantulas I will transfer to the outside of my house and resist the urge to pet them.
Mostly I only kill ants. And heaven help the scorpion that dares to cross my threshold.
