    If you ever had mice in your apartment you'd change your tune in a hurry. I had some sort of super mouse in the house last year (immune to warafin - the most common mouse poison, couldn't trap it either). Took me five weeks to kill it with some other poisons.

    One year later, and I still come across mouse shit. It got everywhere. Under every seat cushion, every dresser drawer, on top of the fridge, the tv, the computer desk, every cupboard, on top of cieling tiles in the basement. EVERYWHERE. Any soft hearted feelings or no-kill solutions to rodents has been tossed out the window in my book. No execution method for mice is too cruel any more. Fast and effective is all that counts.

    Spiders are fine. Like a few others here I leave them be in out of the way places so they kill other bugs (kinda surprised to see others do this, thought only a lazy INTP like myself would consider this approach).

    Another arachnophobe here. I have a specific type of scream that is triggered by the appearance of a spider and my oldest son or my roommate (a guy) knows exactly what is happening and will come get it. Other stuff just doesn't bother me at all...probably from living most of my life in Florida.

    @SensEye yes...a mice-infested home is a nasty one. The smell of mouse urine and droppings everywhere...food nibbled into...gah. As gross as that is, I'd prefer mice over rats. Those things are cunning and nasty...okay, I'm a little scared of them, too.

    All bugs (including spiders, some of which are poisonous) inside my house need to DIE! DIE! DIE! Especially goddamn cockroaches and cricket 'spiders'-If I can see or hear them, I can't rest until I have put them out of my misery.

    No killing anything and no making anybody else do the dirty work, because they'd just kill it. I put everything outside myself, even if it scares me (not many do). A banana spider in the house just means trapping it under a cereal bowl instead of a shotglass. I'm not afraid of spiders at all.

    banana spiders get huge and wouldn't fit under a glass
