Where do Spiders go?

Where do spiders go when they die?
The bible tells us that no animal can make a conscious decision which could lead to mortal sin so therefore they can have no soul.
This is contrary to popular opinion and modern ideas. Everyone wants to believe that when they look into the eyes of their favourite pet, whether it is a cat or a dog or a weasel there is more than just the physical animal staring back at them. At the time of an animal’s death which was held very dear to humans, life long friends even, we hope there is another happier place for them to go, which means their soul going to a place like heaven, if you believe in that stuff anyway.
So if we accept the modern view of animals having a soul then insects do too and if insects do then so do spiders. A very creepy thought, I know but surely there are spiders out there with personalities and souls to lose.
It there weren’t maybe the only result is the spider dying, decomposing and leaving no memory of itself ever being here, because how do we know that memories aren’t connected with souls?
And life can be that fragile, especially for something smaller than us like a spider. Because of their looks and natural behaviour they are not the most popular creatures, just one hit of a shoe and then that life force is gone, and how do I know their life was for nothing?
I don’t think I’ll ever kill a spider ever again.
I would cry before then.
