I don't deliberately kill invertebrates. I don't even try to throw them out of the house, especially not spiders. Butterflies are the only ones I've ever helped back outside, because they can't survive indoors. And a giant sparrow-sized moth or two that came in after dark when the door was open in warm weather.
I'm not particularly infested though, probably because I leave the spiders alone. But I do keep petroleum based grease in the cracks the ants are liable to come through, because they won't walk on grease, and I freeze bulk foods as soon as I bring them home, to keep weevil and moth eggs from hatching. I've never seen a cockroach, but I suppose if I had them I would escort them out the door. But it doesn't bother me at all to share my domicile with tiny visitors.
