By killing spiders who expose themselves to view, we're only encouraging selection for quicker, stealthier spiders, defeating the point of killing spiders. We will never live in safety from the spider menace.

Science! Arachnids! Alarmism! Through incidental artificial selection, our eradication efforts against spiders are only encouraging them to develop more camouflage, quicker reflexes, and heightened situational awareness.

Science! Arachnids! Alarmism!

Through incidental artificial selection, our eradication efforts against spiders are only encouraging them to develop more camouflage, quicker reflexes, and heightened situational awareness.

Fearsome though they may be, they are a cunning race, creating a wartime policy which ensures that we may never live in peace.

We are alone in our cause: if we turn to the sometimes-malovelent-but-always-fun-to-watch myrmidons, we risk exposing ourselves to an even greater threat:

What do we do? Clearly, killing them with fire will only compound our issues, not solve them. The situation seems hopeless. CMV.
