People tend to be right frightened when they encounter bugs or spiders. They freak out even worse if they find them in their own home. Certain individuals, not naming names *cough* Hydra150 *cough*, practically set their house on fire when they think one is in their bedroom. I couldn't be farther from that. I live in peace with the creepy-crawlies. If I come across a spider or house millipede, I look down and give a nod, as if to say "'sup".

So, do you shake in terror, destroy the shit out of them, or live in harmony with any insects and spiders that find a way into your home?

Depends. I always get a chill spider in the corner of my room that eats the crane flies and moths, those are chill. Then there's the spiders with thick legs and stuff that I'm like nah, you're dying.

Hell yeah, bro. Spiders are cool.
Bugs are alright.
Roaches are gross though.

That's not very nice, smiley.

Bugs are one of God's beautiful creatures.

I hate spiders so those go. I'm especially scared of wolf spiders, brown recluse spiders and black widows. But I destroy all spiders, I don't discriminate.

Flies, wasps, bees, can go.

Rollie pollies, lady bugs, butterflies, moths, grasshoppers, crane flies I dont mind. Stink bugs are annoying so I sweep em up and toss em out. I don't like earwigs either.

i will actually fight you if you even think about hurting a spider or other living thing
there is no excuse

I don't mind them as long as they aren't wrecking my stuff.

If you are a moth though, you are getting murdered. Those pricks have ruined too many of my nice cashmere and wool sweaters.

spiders are bros though and I will flip if someone kills one

Most insects I will kill. Mosquitoes I just let them drain me of my blood because there are just so many that it would be a hassle to try to kill them all, I almost don't even notice them anymore.
#20
I've been learning to live with them. I just prefer them to be outside.
I don't like to cause them suffering even though I've done some terrible things out of fear.
I would advise against spraying a spider with chemicals as well because karma got me pretty good for that.
Spiders know things man...

I do kill mosquitoes though out of instinct.

i'm significantly less mortally terrified of bugs when i encounter them outside, even when they're at the same proximity from me. something about being in an enclosed space with a bug makes me flip out.

Even wasps have been cool with me this year. I've been watching them fly around while going out for smokes.
I've been seeing a lot of cool looking random ones as well.

****ing giant flying roaches in my house can **** off. That's my biggest irrational fear. If they stay outside I am peace with them (though I've had instances outside where I see one and they still ****ing fly at me).

I came home to a roach last night. I killed it and felt guilty. Haven't killed anything in this way in a long time. With other bugs I catch them and let them outside, but I'm not getting anywhere near a roach. I thought about just letting it do its thing, but with roaches that's not an option unless you want a giant infestation. :/ Only my second indoor encounter in this house so I'm pretty sure there will be no serious issues.

Spiders, wasps, and others that people hate are all cool with me, except the few instances where they have bit/stung me. I never kill them.

There's almost always a moth in my house this time of year. Never kill them either, and my clothes are still intact. They tend to end up in my bathroom and live the rest of their short lives in peace.

I don't hesitate to kill ants and mosquitoes. Ants cuz they'll eat all my food and mosquitoes cuz they spread dengue fever and it's pretty dumb to just let them bite you. Also fruit flies.

I would like to gently remove the other insects but I'm too scared to go near them so my dad kills them because he's okay with killing stuff. Roaches can **** right off

There's about 8 spiders living in my bathtub now which is perfectly okay because only 2 of them are the big fuzzy kind and I don't use my bathtub anyway.

Not a bug, but I let geckos stick around unless they're in a ******* cabinet.

Snakes can stay but if they're dangerous call someone to remove them.

Caught a spider in my man cave yesterday. I scooped it up with a cup and threw it outside.

On top of my backyard door are at least 7 huge daddy long legs that catch all the flys, mosquitos, bees, moths, cicadas, and other flying assholes who manage to find a way into my home.

I love spiders. They're fuccking awesome as fucck. Especially daddy long leg spiders because they're harmless and they like a natural bug zapper.

I should get a tattoo of a spider.

My ex-roommate got a tattoo of what was supposed to be a half-duck half-spider.

Needless to say it looks like a big black blob of shit.

Only if they're really detrimental do I kill/remove from the premises. Giant spiders, centi/millipedes and mosquitoes can die or leave (try to just relocate the spiders) but most other things I am cool with. Even though I still feel bad about those because they did not choose to be what they are

Death to all insects and arachnids.
I'm fine with them if i'm outside because there is near-infinite open space around me, but put me in a closed space with them and nope, they're dead.

Most of the time i'm too scared to even kill them though. I always have a fear of my foot coming down to kill a spider, it jumping up onto the bottom of my shoe and climbing around to the top of it before my foot can hit the floor to smash it, then it's on me.

I've been terrified of daddy long legs since I went camping as a kid and woke up to at least 50 of them running around in the tent and even more all over the outside of it.
#39
If you have long legs, or numerous legs, you're getting squashed. Unless you're a jumping spider. Dems cute.

If you are a roach, you're dead.

Can't really think of anything I don't either kill or return to outdoors.


unless yous a jumping spider.

If it's a spider or any other landborne creature I say live and let live.

Sometimes I enjoy the challenge of trying to rescue it and bring it back outside.

On the other hand, if it's a mosquito or house fly or some annoying insect that buzzes I'm going all out guns blazing and will hunt it down. I guess I'm prejudiced against winged insects
