I don't kill them... but there is nothing worse than knowing a spider is there and losing focus on it

So driving home today from my old house, I came down to watch TV in my basement, and saw a spider on my Oilers Gretz jersey. I was more angry than scared. Electric swatter and WHAM WHAM WHAM and yelling. It's dead now. You all are safe from jersey eating mongrels.

This man doesn't fear spiders. He eats them.

One time when I was about seven, I was getting tucked into bed by my mom. I lifted my pillow up and saw two darker spots on my bed. I thought they were just wrinkles on my sheets so I went to flatten them. Turned out to be two mating wolf spiders. Not only did they react to being touched, they literally chased me out of my room. I slept on the couch for 2 weeks after that.

I've had to kill around 5 big spiders (not tarantulas but they're bigger than the small type) in addition to beetlebums and mosquitos in the last 5 days or so and it's pissing me off since it was never a problem before outside of the occasional ant problem.

The ants I got rid of in my old house by just spraying that anti-ant stuff around the kitchen. But I dunno what to do with spiders since I've killed a few in the basement and the washroom upstairs and there's no way I know to seal off without blasting it with pesticides which obviously just isn't safe.

I'm not Australian I live in the GTA, I'm tired of dealing with up and down weather, I don't need these.

To be honest, that would probably happen to me now...

It's also safe, as long as it dries up. Make sure when you're spraying it, you keep your cats out of the house or locked up in a "safe zone" of some sort while the spray dries; once it's dried it's not a problem.

Btw, **** centipedes. Living in the GTA, spiders aren't much of a problem, all we really get is those small brown house spiders inside, but they aren't too bad. We have some nastier spiders in the garage, but they're mostly hidden anyway. Centipedes on the other hand, they're freakier looking, bigger, and much faster and harder to kill. I can't stand them.
It's safe for home use and it dries quickly.

^ I'll have a look, thx. Centipedes are definetely more of a problem but I've just noticed more non-small spiders and a bit concerned that they're not just outside now.

Sorry, Freudian slip of a Blur song, I meant those slow little potato beatles that are usually in the garden.

Authorities say it is unclear whether they died from venom or from treatment by witch doctors who cut them with razor blades to drain the wounds.
This scares me more than any spider. What the ****.

They look like they may have just migrated tbh. I don't think a "new" species is what to call them. But
