Do you kill bugs in front of your children?

Posted by   + Show Post

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?

 i'd rather have a stain, than a bug.  lol.  however, i've never had one stain my wall...ya there's guts..but thats what lysol spray is for.  but at the same time, depending on the location of the bug, i normally try to swat it onto the ground anyways, in fear of smashing a hole in the wall..lol   :)

Most of the time, I don't have time to find a fly swatter so I squish them or spray them with bug spray.

My house has a lady bug infestation. Unfortunately, some of them die because they can't just be taken outside.



Quoting AleaKat:

Ladybugs we set free



Spiders Die Die Die!

We discriminate! Lol

:/ yes.
I found half a ladybug in my bed this morning. Don't know where the other half is...
They're everywhere though. I end up squishing them when I close the doors all the time so I keep having to wipe little red and black bodies off all my door frames once a week.

My dog loves it when they die. She thinks they're treats.
