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.
