I will not kill anything.I love spiders and bugs and things like that.Ever since I was a kid,I collected bugs and spiders and even had a red ant nest!

When there is a spider or bug in my house,I either leave it alone or take it outside.That all depends on the weather.I normally let the spiders stay,as they eat the annoying flies.

The ONLY things I kill are fleas and mites/lice (if I have them),as they harm my pets.

I can't kill bugs and get really upset if I accidently do so!

I have to get rid of fleas when my cat has them but I class that as ok because it's better than letting him suffer!!

i don't do good w/bugs that can harm me or sneak up on me. I have a severe phobia of spiders so i make boyfriend or who ever's around take care of them
but i do just open windows/doors when it's not a spider and i can shoo it out

I live in the desert and we have lotz of spiders...ick...especially black widows. We have scorpions too...If a scorpion is in my house we will catch it and take it far, far, far, far, far away from the house to let it go. If its a black widow in my house, im sorry but i gotta squish it. I dont want them breeding in my home. I know they are already around outside my home and that is where they belong. No black widows, if i can help it, in my house.
I dont have a problem swatting flies either. As far as fleas go we dont ever have a problem with them. Dont even see them actually. Here where i am the air is too dry. They prefer more humid conditions.

im sorry but i really really dont like bugs, most of the time if there outside i will try to move away from them or shoo them away, but if there in my house, i usually kill them, i used to try to catch them and put them outside, but if theres nothing to catch them in, i have to kill them.. cuz if i lose site of them i wont be able to sleep that night.. when we were little my asshole dad told us we had to wash our faces at night or the bugs will crawl in our mouths! so yeah.. now im afraid of bugs crawling on me while i sleep.. and spiders, if there like a daddy long leggs or something, i'll try to leave them be, but most spiders here i kill, cuz we have black widows, and fiddlebacks, and there bites are nasty..

hey sounds like arizona we have tons of black widows here and yes i do kill those because i have little kids who might play with one and get bit

I have been known to let one live for a while without taking action before i had kids.

they are not very aggressive they just have lots and lots and lots of babies.
I think their pretty cool but i don't want them to bit emy kids so they must be TERMINATED

lol
