I smushed a spider today, and my son asked me if it hurt on the spider! What do you think? Does it hurt on the fly we swat or the spider we squish?

 Yes it was interesting! Thank you:). Don´t you even slap a mosquitou that tries to bite you, or a fly in your kitchen?

No. My husband guides them outside (I'm usually too short to reach them), but Mosquitos rarely come inside
