Would you let spiders live in your home?

So I live in this apartment on the ground floor and bugs (aka mostly millipedes or aka as college-life perks) like to crawl in. Because of that, I let some spiders live as they please if they aren't on my bed and aren't poisonous.

Would you ever do the same? Or do you smush/remove all arachnids on site?

This is Jeff. He's a house spider that lives in the corner of my room. Barn Funnel Weaver I want to say. I can't remember. 😅


This is Pedro. He is a "Spitting Spider" if I am correct. He's maybe like an inch and a half. I saw him today when I went to take a shower. Gave me a bit of a startle because he crawled around the shower curtain when I was opening it.

  • I try to put them back outside where possible. I am terrified of spiders though, usually I get my boyfriend to get rid of them.

    As soon as its conker season, I'm collecting

      If you really want to enjoy an English tradition - the game conkers. Attach a piece of string to two and then you take turns hitting as hard as possible. Whichever one breaks first is the loser. Next game you have to use the same conker etc until there is a winner

      wow that sounds like an interesting game i'll have to try one day (*´꒳`*)

  • The daddy long legs don't bother me so I let them make themselves at home and the other cute tiny spiders are also welcome. The bigger ones that seem ominous and crawl around on my bed or on me or just somewhere I'll kill em.

  • I HATE insects. I usually either squash them or suck them upbwith a handheld vacuum.

    Thankfully, I live in the northeast and don't really have to worry too much about them being poisonous, but they still creep me out regardless.

  • It depends. Sometimes I kill them, other times I leave them be. If they're in my bed, I kill them.

  • I do, for as long as possible in the house. They're good bugs, they're terminators. I usually have to kill Wolf Spiders,'cause the freak people out.
    I also let a few large, crazy Carolina arachnides spin webs on the Deck garden and pergolas. Took some incredible photos with my Canon DLR.

      It was - is - a very cool photo. Moonlight night a 4 in or so blue a yellow spider glistening, and the angle/perspective was great, like a 3/4 facial full body you could see his eyes. One of my better Macro shots

  • I kill them all, as soon as possible :P
