My kingdom for a spider

Many people dislike spiders, or worse- as this T-shirt says , "We have nothing to fear but fear itself... and spiders". But there's a couple flies in the house, and the cats are on the hunt- a combined total of more than forty pounds of ferocious carnivore are stalking, climbing, and leaping in the pursuit. Not all the bric-a-brac on all the shelves in all of Christendom will deter them from their self-appointed duty. *sigh*

Charlotte, where are you when I need you?

Little spiders are OK, but big creepy ones... (shudder).

We have a catch & release policy on spiders in our house. It does keep down the number of other creepy crawlies.

You know Joel, they make things called "fly strips" and "fly swatters".

I honor all life but warn the critters I do not invite inside ... "leave or die!"

I give them time to leave, then I either throw them out or dispatch them; depending upon how much they creep me out.
