    Probably just didn't use enough fire.

    Also, mission accomplished.

    A house is a small price to pay to ensure the destruction of a spider. Worth it, in my opinion.

    Still don't see why this would be bad advice. The home deserved it for allowing the spider to live.

    for some reason, fires and laundry rooms do not go well together.

    So... who wants to guess what his landlord is going to say about this? Think he'll get his deposit back?

    I using a flaming cloth to dust.
    This seemed like the time to share. Don't judge me.

    I think knowing the type of spider is relevant. Daddy long legs? Overkill. That nasty son of a gun someone posted in here a while ago that's like 12 inches wide?

    Not enough.

    He should. It's the landlord's duty to provide a livable house, which he/she clearly failed to do by renting out a house with spiders.

    I think the bigger problem is we aren't sure the spider's dead. It may be out there, plotting it's revenge...

    This was my takeaway, as well. "Pretty sure" doesn't cut it when it comes to 8-legged freaks.

    Actually, urinating on a spider kills them instantly and is the safest way.

    Well, duh, just lock the durned things in the basement until they starve to death, kill each other, or die from old age. (yes, this is my photo, taken last week)

    You need to burn your house down.
