So we're now going through a moral dilemma.  I throw this to the wisdom bank of the VP
 
Mrs K detests spiders big time.  This makes me a hero several times a week as I trap Mr/Ms Six Legs and deposit them outside the front door.  Now we read that they don't survive outside and can die within hours  cry:
 
Do we

- let them run wild in the house and I lose my (mostly vestigial) hero status?

- just kill them when seen and I not only lose said hero status but look a meanie?

- still throw them out to die a slow horrible death - and me look a bigger meanie

- throw them in the garage - and get all my stuff covered in cobwebs?

- try looking at this from a wider perspective than my outcome?

I kill ants, the millipedes go down the bog but I let spiders run free - apart from the mahoosive ones which take their chances outside...

Oh yes ants in the house = doom for them.

I see a solution here for the pair of you. Box up the spiders and post them to Nick, then they can take care of the daddy longlegs problem..  :thumbsup:

What's the worst that could happen?  whistle:
You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe

Well what has currently happened here is we have a spider amnesty on forced evictions and as a result loads of cobwebs with dead/dying daddy longlegs stuck in them.  But then aren't they the cause of leather jackets?
 
Aint nature compelcated?
