Do you kill bugs? 2011-08-17 23:11:36 Reply

When you see a bug, are you the kind of person who immediately kills it? Even if it's not bothering you?

Personally, I try not to kill anything unless its a direct threat to me. If I see an ant or spider in my room I usually try and leave it. What has that ant done to you to deserve to no longer exist?

Not really a pacifist but I don't think senseless killing is ok. What about you guys?

What's the ant done to deserve death? Easy, it distracted me from fapping for a bit more than a second. Certainly it would deserve even more than death for that.

I never kill bugs..partly out of laziness, partly out of just not really caring. Unless it's a large colony of ants, etc. infesting my house, I don't really care. Just as long as they're not bothering me.

I kill every bug which gets to my apartment. In fact about hour or 2 ago I killed a grasshopper which must've jumped through the window.

I used to, but now I never do if I can help it. The only exceptions are accidents, and when flies are inside and I can't be assed to get up and go catch it I'll go kill it.

Yea flies are the exception for me. The fucking thing just try and piss you off. It's like they're taunting you...

fucking flies man

Other than that though I feel like everything deserves a chance at life

Well it depends.

If it's a spider and it's not interfering with me(keep in mind I'm deathly afraid of them) I pretty much warn it if it leaves a certain area it's dead.

If it's a bug crawling on my I flick it away or I use something to scoop it up and dump it outside.

But I also, unfortunately have roaches, which I kill everytime I see one.

But I always feel bad about it.

The only things that annoy me that I have killed so far is a cricket (got into my room and would not quit chirping) and a few spiders.

depends on the type of bug. Flies, bees, ants, and wasps are kill on sight for me. Mantids and dragonflies are protect at all cost.

I avoid it as much as possible. I even tend to save bugs if I find them drowning in a pool of water. That's just how I roll. Bugs are just trying to live too.

It makes me happy to see such reasonable people on here. I was expecting more along the lines of "I SMUSH ALL BUGS" y'know, something like that.

depends on the bug...
I kill, and sometimes torture ants. they're probably my least favorite creatures on Earth.
I typically have my girlfriend kill large spiders. they bite and that sucks :/ (and in regards to insects, she's less of a coward than I am XD)
I love moths and butterflies and I typically try my hardest to keep them alive when I see them (even when they're bothering the hell out of me)
I try to kill flies, but I usually don't have the attention span (and I lack a fly swatter)
water-fleas and fruit-flies, I kill instantly.

Senseless killing??? Dude its a fuckin bug, try to remember that they'll always replace that one "innocent" Roach that "innocently" tried to fuck with your hard earned food.

Maybe it'll help you sleep at night.
