How To Kill A Spider (For Women)
I am NOT going to show you a picture or video of a spider, so don't worry. I hate them just as much as the next girl does. The times when I come across a spider the first thing I do is get either my dad or boyfriend to kill it. Yes--kill it. None of that scooping and releasing nonsense!
But what can you do when there are no men around and the spider is in the corner where the ceiling meets the walls?! I hate that!
Here is a quick and easy way to kill those monsters using a broom (or two) and some duct tape.

If the spider is in the corner:

Take about 10-inch piece of tape to the handle, sticky-side OUT.
Pinch it to stay.
Say a prayer.
Gather your nerves.
Lunge it like a spear (without letting go) toward the spider.
Scream the whole time if you need to.

If the spider is on the wall:

Take about 24-48 inches of tape to the bristles of the broom, sticky-side OUT. Depends on the size of your broom, the size of the spider, and the fear factor.
Pinch it to stay.
Say a prayer.
Gather your nerves.
Slap the broom (without letting go) toward the spider.
Scream the whole time if you need to.
I mentioned you may need two brooms because if one the the aforementioned methods doesn't work, the spider will probably move and you MOST-LIKELY will have dropped and thrown the broom. I doubt you'd want to pick that up again. Having another broom ready to go on stand-by is perfect.
Now, I know I am not the only one that goes bonkers when I am the one forced, through tears, to kill a spider by myself!

@marshalledgar unfortunately it's mostly girls in my family so I'm normally picked to do said spider disposal XD
Too bad for you @mattk95 Of everyone in my family, only my mom and sister-in-law are unphased by the eight-legged monsters. Everyone else is a hysterical mess. We're a bunch of flat liners.
@marshalledgar as an Australian I suppose I shouldn't be phased by them, there are so many deadly things here worse than spiders, but there just something about them that's sets my skin crawling... Ugh even thinking about them is gross hahaha
I've heard the horror stories of giant spiders the size of a dog that exist over there. YUCK! Though, I'm sure Australia would be a cool place to visit. LA living is fine by me though.
