    Just Cause...

    I don't have any strong affinity for bugs but I don't see the need to kill anything just for being annoying to us.  They serve more purpose than most people I know and are a living thing just like I am. I always catch spiders or bugs in my bug glass and put them outside if...

    A Step In Man's Spiritual Journey

    Many people have a habit of killing any insect in their home, and even some outdoors.  They should reflect that we are all dependent on a complex web of life.  Those who kill ants, for example, are probably unaware of the amazing society that ants live in.  For...

    The Tale of the Rustling Spider

    I was driving my wife home from work one day and she was telling me about the close encounter she had with a very large spider earlier that day. She was sitting at her desk when she heard this strange rustling sound next to her. Her office during the workday is almost silent, so...

    Try Not To

    I never like to kill anything. I always try to scoop the creature into a glass and then put it outside, but hey- if there's something crawling on me or biting me, sometimes my instinct kicks in and I do the "oh-god-get-it-off-me" dance and sometimes the poor insect dies in...

    They Deserve Life Too

    I am not saying I love bugs. In fact even a harmless lady bug flies near me and I flee. But, I do think bugs deserve their freedom. As long as their not invading my home in 1,000's then they have a right to be there. My old school used to have crickets everywhere. And everyone...

    Spider World

    We live near the woods and have a constant battle with all the bugs and critters invading our house. I have learned how to get spiders to climb on a broom; scoop them up with paper  and toss them out the door but occasionally the small jumpy ones give me the horrors and they...

    An Animal Is An Animal, Even If It Is Not Cute!

    A friend of mine was asking about my diet (I am Vegan), and wondering why I do not eat honey. I told her it is because bees are often hurt or killed in the process of producing commercial honey, and if I will not drink milk because its production promotes cruelty to cows, it...

    Hey, Kindred Spirits!

    I'm the only one I know who doesn't kill insects, glad to know there is a group of us. I run around the house with a jam jar, eventually capturing them and release them into the back garden. (My family say, "only to come back in again)" but oh, well... I am afraid of spiders...

    It would be a lie to say I "don't kill insects"... Everyone does. It just happens. You instinctively swat and kill a mosquito. You spray the wasp nest outside your home, killing the wasps. You get the picture. But I try my very hardest not to. There's something sick and sadistic...
