Not me!! He’s totally scared of them too, but his need to feel manly wins out every time! πŸ™‚

I agree with Layla…I don’t squish, and when he gives me a hard time about it…I just remind him it was one of the qualities I married him for πŸ™‚

I have absolutely no problems squishing bugs. It’s a tough world out there; squish or be squished. πŸ˜›

Haha…am I the only mighty spider killer? I guess that happens when you grow up with three sisters in an old house!

I’ll squish ants…and I’ll spray wasp.  BUT in no way shape or form will I go near a spider.

I will squash them … but FH usually takes care of it because he believes in humane treatment of bugs – he catches and releases them outside.

Neither.  Unless it’s an unmanageable horde of ants or a cockroach/fly (because they are SO dirty, ew) I simply scoop up in paper/a cup and throw outside.  I do this for spiders, bees, beetles, etc.  No need to kill them if they’re harmless, they just got lost and found themselves somewhere nice and warm.   I’ve convinced Fiance to do the same.

Oh geez.  Don’t even get me started on this.  H hates killing ANYTHING because he thinks it’s inhumane and he will try to take it outside.  Of course he will fail at catching it (because bugs are faster than him) and then the bug will crawl into some unreachable space.  And then he shrugs “oh well, I tried.”  Meanwhile I am hysterical.  I would say that this is probably the #1 cause of fights in our relationship!!

once upon a time I agreed with you veganglam…the the attack happened πŸ™

In one year both my small, inside dog and I were bitten by spiders.  The dog’s was the worst! She almost lost her foot due to it.  I turned on them pretty quickly then πŸ™‚

I usually just let spiders be and neither of us kill them (unless it’s REALLY big, then I have hubby do it), and if he’s around, I’ll have him squish the roaches cause I’d rather not… If he isn’t here, I will, but it gets me all panic-y feeling and ugh. I hate them… haven’t seen them much lately though. Oh the joys of NYC living…
