Spiders are definitely gross (to me anyway) but I tend to just kill them by normal means: like a shoe or something. But in suburban Fresno, a son was house sitting for his parents when he saw some spiders (black widows presumably) crawling on the wall.
So he did what I have only seen in memes: he grabbed a blowtorch and went to work, forgetting that fire doesn't target just arachnids but just about anything that gets in its way:
So, by all means, kill them spiders (or let them keep your house free from other pests..I suppose that's an option) but if you decide to use a blowtorch, don't end up causing $60k in damage along with 29 firefighters having to respond and show up the cops as the real heroes.
