I don't like spiders and sometimes kill em, cuz they creepy crawlers, yet I don't kill certain ones like;
Daddy Long Legs: they eat the mosquito(s) and are totally harmless, I held one in my hand, it tickled teehee!
Black widow spiders: poisonous, if has a red spot on it's belly, don't get bitten you can die nearly in 2 days without the right cure.

I have found an Albino spider, not sure what it does, but it was pretty fricken cool man! XD so I let it go and free outside, without harming it :D

I wanna see an albino spider TT-TT BUT I WUV SPIDERS... but sometimes creep me out.....
Sixty-six times have these eyes beheld the
changing scene of autumn.
I have said enough about moonlight,
Ask no more.
Only listen to the voice of pines and cedars
when no wind stirs.

It was very rare to spot one, so I let it free, since it looked harmless, it was a tiny spider, and it had really rare red eyes O.o

We should never kill spiders! They are living creatures just like us! They understand when they are about to die! Never in my LIFE have I deliberately killed a spider. Even a wolf spider. Outside, I freeze up and back away. In my house, I gently put a piece of paper underneath it and a cup over it and place it down outside. I never deliberately kill anything except mosquitoes :)
Here we go, welcome to my funeral.
Without you, I don't even have a pulse.
All alone, it's dark and cold...
with every move I die.

You can't let them in your house, man. You gotta kill fast as you can sometimes, because they can escape peices of paper and cups. Good bit of them are dangerous.

I've made the title more generally so it accommodates the critters that we may want to squash, but shouldn't. Feel free to talk about all of those little guys here. (:

Strangely enough, I am only arachniphobic if I see the spider first, and if it startles me. At one point a friend and I were on their trampoline, and this BIG spider fell out of a tree onto it right behind me. My friend saw it first and screamed, and I turned around, and tried to squish it, but failed epicly, and ended up with the spider hanging off from a web thread from my finger. It actually swung into my mouth and back out.
I did finally end up squishing it, but that was just because it was causing chaos.
But IF I had seen the spider first...

Creepy frodo, I can't stand spiders. But were I live we have poisonous spiders. They give me the freaks! If I HAD the choice to kill or not to kill a spider, I would try not to kill it. But usally my cats get to the spider first.

Same. I do not like spiders, as they freak me out a lot, but I usually feel guilty when my parents' or me kills one. One outside my house, is fine, still gives me the creeps though, but when they're in my house...no matter which state or continent you live on...I will be screaming.

I don't love them, but spiders don't bother me much. You've got to realize that most spiders can't even bite you (Your skin is too rounded and smooth, the best they can do is pinch you) and even if you encounter a kind of spider that can actually do damage to you (which you most likely won't), chances are that there is an antidote and you won't even get hurt in the long run. But that doesn't mean they don't creep me out :shock:

My mom always squishes spiders, my dad's friend who is staying at our house has a fear of spiders, and my brother always gets bit by them. But I think spiders are awesome!!!! Every time when I'm in the bathroom and I see a spider, I'm like, "Don't worry little spider I won't tell anyone your in the house...." and I leave it be. Spiders are amazing and they kill and eat the bugs you humans hate, like mosquitoes which all of them should be destroyed.
DONT SQUISH SPIDERS!!! One or two summers ago I used to find mosquitos and grab them by their wings. Then I would find a spider web and HELLO DINNER.

Spiders are awesome and do not kill them or I will squish you like a bug :)
