Spiders found in bathtubs are usually there because they are thirsty- their environment is typically very dry. House spiders should NOT be taken
outside, as their life expectancy dwindles to hours in what is to them a hostile environment. When I find spiders in the sink or tub, I put down a
paper towel, coax them on to it, and cover them quickly with a plastic bowl or glass. Then they can safely be released BACK in the HOUSE. Another
thing that often happens, is that people see increased spider activity in their houses during weather changes and assume that the creatures have come
into the house from outside for this reason, but in fact, this almost always is due to male HOUSE spiders looking for a mate.
Check out this link (from a local Seattle museum) for some more interesting (and incredible) myths/facts about spiders.
