Sorrow-spiders are the size of a small cat, and both armoured and poisonous. The best way to deal with them, although not the tidiest approach, is to hit them as hard as you can with a hammer.

This might be faster… Track them to their nests
They're wary of lamplight and fiendishly cunning. But you might be able to work out where a nest is from their movements.
(Watchful challenge, modest at 26)
