For those NOT afraid of spiders, but want to give them a "taste of their own medicine" (the spiders, not the arachnophobes), Use a quality spray adhesive, for example 3M Super 90, and spray the little bastards with that, and enjoy knowing they will be forever glued to their webs, and serve as the "Head on a Stick" for future 8 legged terrorists.
Hair spray, perfume, also works. (happened to be the only thing in my hand at the time)
I only kill black widows. I'm pretty ok with the rest.
