    I Don't Kill Bugs

    I used to kill bugs but decided that bugs should be allowed to live unless they are dangerous. And smashing them is awful, though a quick death resulting in much less suffering than poisoning them.  And I would hate to spray them and have them slowly die, and it is about the...

    I Care & I Hope You Do Too

    'bug' is a derogatory tem-it indicates that they bug or bother you, so I don't use that word. I use the words insects, arachnids, and annelids, since they are the scientific terms. I am a strong vegetarian. Insects, arachnids, and annelids are alive and deserve to stay that...

    Fire ants. I will go out of my way to kill fire ants. I will stop my car if I see one of their mounds along the side of the road and feed them the Amdro. I hate those insects! I used to think that every creature on this earth had a purpose. Not anymore!

    I Can't, I Don't Know Why

    I can't stand the 'squish' factor, ooh, just thinking about it gives me the willies. I usually try to catch them and put them outside. If this is not an option I get someone else to kill them. Except spiders, I hate spiders, those I suck up with a vacuum, or have...

    I don't kill bugs because I have extreme insectophobia and they scare me even when they're dead. I don't kill bugs, I run and hide.

    I Would Never Even Want To

    Insects (along with arachnids and annelids) are my favorite kinds of animals. I love them so much. It awlays makes me so sad when people hurt them, especially since so many do just because they don't like them. I always go out of my way to make sure I don't step on them, and I...

    Glad To Know I'm Not Crazy!

    I've heard there is always someone somewhere who shares your passion.  Just like some of the stories I read, I used to find spiders at work, and instead of killing them, I would capture them and let them out in a huge flower urn (and hope no one saw me).  There was one spider...

    I'm Not the Only One!

    I feel like crying when I realize I've killed something.  I have to let bugs out. One of my old dance teachers used to make me kill spiders (I clean the studio for my director), and once she caught me sneaking one outside, so she made me clean it off her shoe...

    How Could I Kill?

    About those who feel like crying when accidentally killing something ... well, I actually cry (cried, should I say, as I haven't killed anything in a long time). I find it hard when I see all my family members and friends and relatives (pretty much everyone I know actually...

    I Know It's Weird, But...

    I just don't have it in me to hurt anything even if it be a bug. If I happen to find a bug in my house, I catch it and place it back outside... I wouldn't even harm a fly...literally XD
