Do you kill bugs in front of your children?

Hi!

I try to teach my kids to treat all living creatures with respect, but when a spider or fly gets in the house I take out the fly swatter and...SPLAT! How do I explain that? What do you do when bugs get in your house?

Yes. Without hesitation. Although I realize bugs are part of nature, they are PESTS and not welcome in my home. All spiders get murdered at first sight. I'm terrified of them. If I see a mosquito eater and something less offensive that won't bite me (and I'm in a friendly mood), then I will get a cup and move it out to the front yard.

Yes spiders are creepy! How do you kill them? Kleenex-squish?

Lol, yes I kill bugs. Yuck. Bugs do not count like a dog or cat. They know the difference. You are over thinking things.

We don't kill bugs in our house.
We capture them and put them outside.
