I don't get why people kill spiders if you find one in your home. I mean why really? It's natures way of removing bugs from your place. I mean if it's a spider that bites yes remove it. But jeez less bugs it's a no brainer! I found one under my chair and I was like Cool! Less bugs! Nice!

Probably because

they don't have the appropriate life experiences or state of awareness (or have never been gently but convincingly taught) to value bug life :'(

and fwiw, I do get it - when I was a kid, I didn't value bugs that much either. They are small and delicate, and easily snuffed out (to humans), and not immediately or surfacely relatable to human experience, coming from a certain kind of mindset anyways.

But yeah, I think bugs are precious and even adorable for the most part (there's a lot of messed up stuff that goes on in the insect world though, from what I've seen!).

I still have this knee-jerk automatic reaction whenever most bugs make direct contact with my body though up to this day though, which I find sad and a bit pathetic. Obviously some buggies aren't healthy or harmless to humans in general and ought to be avoided, prevented from direct contact or relocated, but this notion that nonhuman life (or the smaller, less significant-seeming forms of it to us normally, anyway) somehow has no value, no consciousness, no sentience or ability to feel or inner life of its own or care for its own well-being, is extremely harsh and alienating... and untrue, imo.

So thank you for appreciating spiders and treating them with the respect they deserve :3

Get a cat and you will not have spiders, flying insects or beetles at all.

Though bed bugs, fleas and ants could be an issue.

Spiders are so cool

If I catch one inside, I put it in a mason jar. I look at it for a few minutes, then I let the spider go in the yard. Same procedure for 40 years, lol.

sometimes throw them out side if they're not really scary, but if they're really scary then they're just smashed.

It's not so black & white

I try to remove as many spiders as I can, no need to kill them most of the time. But when my bedroom ends up crawling with those skinny ones, coming down on to my face at night (yes), filling up every corner with sticky webs and a shitty mess of dead things, they have to go.

Lots of spiders in my place

and that's fine with me, unless they're in the shower first thing in the morning, then they go down the drain. I'm sure their spider rivals that they wrestle for the good spots won't miss them.
