Do you kill bugs?

If not what do you do if you see a spider, a bee, an ant? Do you kill it or move it out of your house?
There's a slug in my inside porch...yuck!

  • I will kill the hell out of some spiders, but only after building up my courage to get close enough!

  • Spiders scare the hell out of me.. even with the way they move. I'm terrified of those things (probably thanks to my dad who had me watch Arachnophobia when I was a child).. those are on my to kill list. I think a bee has only made its way in once and it died because I have no clue if me or my family is allergic.. don't want to find out either.

  • I usually do if its INSIDE, if its little and outside I just...keep moving along.

  • I don't care what it is but I try to remove it from the scene or shoo it away. I don't know if it is bc the squishy sound it might make or I have a big heart for insect

    My dh just STOMPS on them :(

  • O hoot yah I kill them and then I say in a loud voice, "Now let that be a lesson to the rest of u!"

    Now a slug on my porch... as much as I would like to, I think squashing it would be too gross and I might just get the hose and wash it away.... that's my "outside plan!"

  • i only kill flys, gnats, & mosquitoes cause they annoy me like nothing else. i usually let spiders & bees be, or if DH is home move them outside (hes afraid & will tear the floor up to kill one).

    Answer by okmanders at 10:55 AM on Dec. 3, 2009

  • no...cause one time i read on here that if you tell them in a serious voice "get out of here or i will kill you!" the bugs will go.

    im kidding! lol but i did read one time on here that someone said that about ants now i got it stuck in my mind. normally i just take my hairspray or a bug killer and spray it and watch it die.
