They can "function" somewhere else...just not on my property or house. I looked on the ceiling last night as I was going to bed and there was one who was spinning webs in front of the window as I was closing the blinds...I merely don't like insects, my wife has a phobia of black widows, and has been raging a battle to eliminate them if not from the earth, at least her property for fifty five years! She studies their habits, is on the lookout for their webs, and will stalk them at night when they come out. She comes in after a bout with them, and gleefully recounts how many she killed that night to me. I'm glad that she still likes me, I'm just an old Daddy Long legs, and probably safe.
I used to use those glue traps in Maryland because of the huge spider crickets that were always coming into my apartment. I had those and sometimes slugs crawling around.I don't like spiders in the house. Especially in (or on) the Bed. We have had two large brown fiddle-back looking spiders on or near the bed in the last week. I don't know how they are getting in or why except we had had lots of rainfall the last week.

We buy glue traps at "Wally-World" and set them by the doorway entrances. One point of entry may be the "Weep Holes" in the brick siding. I purchased some copper type Brillo Pads used for scouring pots and pans with the intention of cutting them up and inserting them in the exterior weep-holes to limit entry.
"So where were the spiders
while the fly tried to break our balls?
Just the beer light to guide us.
So we bitched about his fans
and should we crush his sweet hands?"
Bowie would never succeeded without Mick Ronson as producer and guitarist...
jus sayin ..
Another vote for the Mars version.
Spiders overwhelmingly do more FOR man than against him.
grown-ass men scared of little bugs !
glue traps are barbaric
if you live in a place that has spiders that will bite and hurt you, fine . Kill away.
