Keeping a pet spider in your guest room for two weeks is a little over the top. I found it quite hard to concentrate on the rosary with that fuzzy little fellow making his rounds. I finally just offered it up. I was glad to hear that you jarred it and let it outside. Personally, I just vaccuum them up; I figure they get a 50/50 chance that way. I just have one question though; why don't you feel the same way about ants?
