I just squashed a spider and nuked its babies - am I doomed?
I'm reliving childhood nightmares of watching my mother drop a shoe on a spider on the patio and having about 350,000 babies go running every direction. Tonight there was a spider the size of Alaska in the garage. I dropped something on it and watched in horror as about 50 babies went running. Not wanting them to grow up to become the size of Alaska and infest my home, I grabbed the nearest can of bug stuff (which happened to be wasp and hornet spray) and sprayed them into oblivion. Am I doomed to bad spider karma?

3. i try not kill them because i know they're preform insect eradication at my home
but sometimes if they're big and icky beyond my coping level i vacuum them up. i found this bug scooper thing in a catalog, you can kind of vacuum them up and then release them outside, i need to order that.

4. Depends where you are.
It's bad luck to kill a spider. Unless you're in Sweden. Then it means it's going to rain.

I prefer to co-exist with spiders. They eat the other annoying insects...that I probably attract.
