At one point, Shane, who could be heard giggling and laughing in the background, unnerves his mother further by shouting at her.
After several minutes of combating where nerves, she finally plucks up the bravery to kill the spider with a spider.
"He's jiggling, he's still alive!" she shouts.
"I'm not going to be right after this," she concludes to her son.
When one YouTube user asked Shane why he didn't help his mother, he said: "It made for a better video."
This may not be a video his mother will want to watch but with over 250,000 views so far on his video on YouTube, many people certainly witnessed her battle with a spider.
