  18. Spiders are predators. They eat other insects in your house, NOT YOU. By killing all the spiders you favor the other insects, that you dont want to see at home. Spiders are your enemies enemies, so your friends. Once there are no more insects to eat, they will either die out, or leave. Unless that spider is really dangerous, do not kill them.
