I use sage to repel bugs. It seems to work pretty well, as I'm currently living in a basement apartment and since I started sprinkling the sage around, I haven't seen any.
Mostly I don't bother the spiders and they don't bother me. But if I saw a spider I KNEW was dangerous to me or my cat, I would take immediate action and not be dainty about it, removing it from my environment. If I could not do so safely, I would kill it, as a last resort. That would be a violation of my personal beliefs, but I am not yet perfect.
When we make compassion our barometer, we don't settle for violence on a small scale. We aspire to kindness on a huge scale. --Colleen Patrick-Goudreau
