as i write this, there is an ugly spider somewhere on the left side of this desk. i tried to kill it, but it ran away, as they usually do.
this might not sound scary to most people, but i have a serious phobia to spiders and most insects. finding one of the little and not so little critters can cause serious distress to me. (no offense to spider lovers intended.)
what’s the best way to kill spiders and better yet, what can i do to make sure that they stay away from my house? (i live in an apartment… you get away from the country-side but the country always finds you :mad: ). any product recommendations? would spraying something like raid onto them work? and please don’t say hit it with a shoe, i can’t usually get that close to them without a lot of shouting involved, especially not with a big ugly spider like this one. please help, i know that spider is around here lurking and it scares the jeebees out of me, especially because i have to work in this room. thank you very much for any input.
