This post is about one spider. Spiders are a good thing to have around one's home. I don't squish spiders because they have many benefits to man.

This post shows the five steps to releasing a spider back outside. 

Step 1: Spiders eat more insects than birds and bats combined, so they should be considered one of human's best friends. Spider silk is incredibly strong and flexible. Some spiders are five times as strong as an equal mass of steel and twice as strong as an equal mass of Kevlar (bullet proof vest). Jumping spiders, one of the more common types of spiders world-wide, have the ability to jump great distances -- as far as 50 times their own length.

Step 2: Above right fig.1 shows the spider is in sight. 
Step 3: Catch the spider. Fig.2 shows the spider has been caught in a clear glass. The spider is at the bottom of the glass but the top of the picture.

Step 4: Take the glass outside, like an nice plant, or a leaf that you can see the spider has landed, and not on you. Fig.3 shows the spider going home.

Step 5: Touchdown the spider has landed. Fig.4 and fig.5 shows the spider is on top of a plant. Happy with its new digs. Hopefully it will eat all the bugs and we won't get the bill.
