i cant actually go near them.i start to sweat and shake. i have a phobia with spiders..big style!
Just think that most home spiders are not real spiders but harvestmens. They don't bite and are usefull. It's better to have them in home than other small creatures ;)
Of course no one likes them around bed but why to kill them, just throw them outside the window. They afraid of you more than you of them. If you blow air on them they will curl.
In Poland we have also spiders called Crusaders (in English you call them "barn spider"). They bite and leave a bump so I definitely don't tolerate them in the sleeping room.
My gran just used to say that if you kill a spider then it will rain heavily all day long,
