    I'm all against killing anything. There are other solutions. As a Buddhist i would try to trap them in a jar find another area where there is little human interaction and release them. It soundslike a pain in the rear but to me there is no point in trying to kill something that is following its basic instinct to survive. Humans do the same though differently. If you do decide to relocate them i would highly suggest wearing gloves in addition to a prod to get them in the jar.
    Also I know some people collect weird and deadly so post up and see if anyone wants them should you take my route.
    IMO everything deserves life if there is a choice and to take that life simply because you knew it was there (to ME) is wrong... But regardless I hope whatever solution you come up with you stay safe and unbitten!
    All fear violence, all are afraid of death.
    Seeing the similarity to oneself, one should not use violence or have it used.

    if you are careful widows will never bite you.
    They are one of the shiest and least aggressive spiders.

    Oh lol.
    I once read a story in which someone had a black widow in their room and were entirely unaware until the spider's egg sac hatched. They had a very large fan in their room and the young spiderlings mistook it for wind and began balooning all over the room.
    The person in question had small black widows raining down on them.
    Luckily this did not bother them so much as they happened to be an arachnid hobbyist.

    It made me laugh. It also made me glad I wasn't there.
