There's one I saw that seems to lead to ground level I'm thinking I dig under it with a trowel and pull the thing right outta there

Bait them with prey. When they run out, block off the burrow.

As a kid catching Eratigena, I used to do that and scoop them out of their webs with my hand before they were able to retreat.

You can use a piece of grass to lure them out. Why do you want to catch them?
