Catch it and put it out. One way of dealing witrh these trapped creatures is to put a length of cotton over the side of the bath, the sider wil climb it and escape.
Since I don't fear spiders and regard them as friendly, I try to catch them on a washcloth and get them to safety before the hot water takes its toll.
I get the thick book we keep in the bathroom for such situations and drop it on the little angel. If this doesn't work I get my broom and stomp it with the bristles OR get my hairspray and saturate her good with it. Once the life is gone from her twitching, leggy body I dispose of it. If said spider had the audacity to already get into the water I'd get alcohol or Pine Sol and pour this into the water, and then let her swirl down the drain. I know this must shock the spidey lovers but I was bitten by what was called an "ordinary house spider" (hidden under a bed pillow) and went into anaphylactic shock. As I see it, since I don't go out and crawl into their homes or even think to disturb their personal space they better stay clear of mine.

Why are people afraid of spiders?

Do spiders spend their whole life in their web, waiting for food?What kind of social life does a spider have? Do they go for little walks? I've had this spider in my basement sink for about 5 days now. For some reason I think its a female. She appears to be aggressive which makes me think she may...
