On Killing Spiders

Spiders who spin webs generally cannot hurt you (at least in North America). It's the hunter spiders that you should beware of.

I only kill spiders if they're indoors, outside I consider them allies against the insect swarms.

Hairspray also slows silverfish down enough to dispose of them easily.
