But ... ummm .... I don't really want to carry a live spider with us. I'm kind of worried that those fangs might penetrate the sack and poison whoever is carrying it like. And, like, if the sack is strong enough for that not to happen, then would the spider be able escape the sack if we throw it at something? But if you think it's a good idea like, then it's OK, as long as, like, it's nowhere near me like.
Y'know, I think yer right, mate. It could be more trouble than it's worth, think I'd better squish it.
Now, anyone seen me arrers? And could someone take a look at this spider bite on me back? Make sure it ain't goin' nasty.

Gubuk hefts his goop-covered sword and exterminates another sleeping bug. "P'raps even set up a camp up at the entrance - or in here! If we keep the webs in place in the passage there, then we only have to watch one other. Maybe the mages and the mule stay behind while we scout the other way in?"

"Yes, let's slay the spiders quickly, it's the best way to make sure," Mercando nods.
"As for making a camp, I say that we venture a bit further in, to make sure that no wild beasts or brigands come upon us from the wilds. While this will be a riskier venture, given that my colleague and I have expended our arcane abilities, I submit that it may prove safer ultimately."

Anaxagaras suggests creating a leash for the spider out of rope, then attaching the leash to the end of a pole, which someone then holds, so that it can crawl around but can't get within stinging range of anyone.
