 I kill flies and wasps, spiders get a second chance, we do the catch and release method, they are good about killing other bugs. =)

I kill centipedes, mosquitoes, and roaches. I only kill spiders when I find them in the shower. They come out of the air vent that's right above it. I've never been able to kill a yellow jack or wasp, but I would if I could. I usually just open the window, close the door and run away screaming. I've never been stung and I was always told to avoid the possibility of being stung because lots of people in my family are terribly allergic and I don't know if I'm one of them.
