no

Quoting jenna30:

Do you have a fly swatter?


Quoting alliesaurus:

i just said i drown ones in the bathtub....and im pretty sure the vaccum kills them too lol....and i kill slugs in my garden...and flies in the kitchen...sure i kill bugs...but only if they are *buggin* me. i just don't usually squish them like in your options.

Quoting jenna30:

Dont u kill any bugs?





Quoting alliesaurus:

depends on location, type, size.......l actually don't mind them. they eat other bugs. I do prefer they stay outside though.

if its up high...it gets the vaccuum. if its little and on the floor i'll get it on a paper plate an put it outside.

the only place i have seen big ones is in the bathtub...and they unfortunately do get drowned.

I actually can't bring myself to smash them...something about the squish, crunch, and gut cleanup is worse.

Nope, cuz they aren't worth it. If they wanna live they should've stayed outside where they belong. Lol


Quoting jenna30:

Never thought about relocating them outside instead of squashing them?:-)




Quoting Kazmira222:

Well I can't say I fear them, but they throw me off guard. Lol I just would rather get them before they get me. Cuz the spiders we have here are big and creepy!






Quoting jenna30:

Are u afraid of them?








Quoting Kazmira222:

I dominate those suckers and they feel my wrath! Lol I find a shoe and smash them until they no longer look like a bug :) lol disinigrated is a good word for that xD

Quoting jenna30:

 



Just wondering if you kill recluses with that?



Quoting cemcnair:

Yes, why?



Quoting jenna30:



 




Do you have a fly swatter





 




Quoting cemcnair:

If its a brown recluse, I kill it by whatever means necessary.
Anything else, I trap and put outside.
