my mate has got a spider on the loose in his house.
it's about the size of a CD.
what do ya do?!
it could be anywhere... i'm not going round there =)
and wiggle it around every so often (or a lot to make it use all its oxygen up). You'll be able to see when it's dead, and lift the cup without worrying that it might bite/crawl up your leg. That might be a bit cruel though...? Is there such a thing as cruelty to spiders?!
you're one sick fuck
I think our spider has moved out :(
make a cup of tea
go to his house and have some fun
it's huge and they don't know where it's gone.
i'd go back to me mum's if it were me!
Put it outside.
95% of spiders are designed to live indoors. So when you think you are being kind by putting it outside you are actually killing him.
get a job and pay rent like the rest of us
In order of preference:
2) Can of deodorant
3) Can of deodorant and lighter.
4) Piece of paper and pint glass.
I tried it once.
Made it really hard to get my deposit back.
This is true. Combinations however, are proven to be effective.
You deodorise them first. Then while their nervous system attempts to correct the massive trauma you've inflicted on it, it gets Dyson'd.
does deodorant do to them? other than make them smell nice?
and put it outside.
Though I don't like them too much, I try to avoid killing spiders.
cats like eating/tormenting spiders
cats are really crap pets!
mine are terrified of them.
your cats have probably been mollycoddled and wrapped in cotton wool all their lives
a spider that size can get through 100 flies a day and (unlike flies) spiders don't eat shit and then vomit it up onto your food and stamp around in it
spiders are great
whilst you're asleep
spiders, still awesome
then lift up the glass just enough for a jet of deodorant/polish/air freshener to be sprayed then when it's dead flush it down the toilet
stoming on it is more humane
I leave them or drop them outside my window. I have one in my bathroom now, I named it Terrance and im sure its got rid of moths and flies since.
and sell it to a gangster boss that looks like a giant slug
bit of tissue in the end of the hoover to stop it crawling out.
Mummy: Timmy, I do wish you'd stop sticking pins in spiders...it's so cruel.
Little Timmy: But why mummy? You always sew buttons on flies!
