    We have a large resident Black Widow outside under a eve of the screen porch. I enjoy watching her pounce on un suspecting insects, she stocked up on stink bugs this year.

    ^ Cool, Dave!

    As long as it stays outside and eats stink bugs.

    I still have that tarantula my son left to my care.

    My sister keeps a can of Aqua Net handy for spiders. It slowly freezes them in a shell so they can get squished. Little black spiders that get in the house will bite. They feel like a flea. I get them in the bathroom a lot. Outside I don't care. Inside is a problem then it's Dad to the rescue. Big roaches too.

    when bored, we used to "shoot down" the flies in the shop with starting fluid (ether). Their buzzing would stop & they'd drop to the countertops. In a minute, they'd slowly crank back up; the pitch of their buzzing increasing. Lift off and rotation; fit for another round. Ahh, life was simple & sweet ... or was that ether working on us as well ?

    Have no tolerance for pests/vermin inside my home.

    That spider is the real deal.
    We have some of the most dangerous spiders and snakes in the world.

    When I was in cairnes and papua new ghinea the amount of poisonous snakes was alarming! Some are so territorial they chase unsuspecting people who walk by their nests. They are called black papuan vipers. Super deadly bite.

    That is EXACTLY the first thought in my head. I've watched enough sci-fi to know you never nuke, shock or use ANY chemicals on an already scary bug.
