A can of hairspray and a source of fire.
Burn!

yeah...but next thing you know, you could be lying on the ground cold, looking like this http://news.bbc.co.uk/olmedia/1455000/images/_1456643_vaugh ters300.jpg or that http://www.alpslabs.com/images/skeleton.gif

Wasp are dangerous.

First one - I'd just deal with it. Wouldn't be the first time I had to go through normal life looking all weird/injured. laugh

Second one - lol....it'll take more than a few nests of wasps to do that, so I'm not worried.

Seriously, exterminators cost a LOT of money, and unless you have a major problem, they're totally not worth it. I say this living in a climate where it gets cold in the winter, so we don't have cockroach infestations or similar problems; in a warmer climate an exterminator may well be worth it. But for a few wasps?? Nah.

Tempting, but not such a good idea when the wasp nest is attached to your house! laugh (Also I have no hairspray...)

I tend to just take bugs outside if they are inside the house. But spiders, I will leave alone inless they are somewhere that distracts me... Or if I get bored and then I trap them somewhere and figure out a way that I should eliminate them. I also let at least one spider live in a corner of my room, and if I see two over there, I will kill them both, and if I see a spider somewhere other than that corner then they have a death wish. I haven't had much of a bee or wasp problem in awhile. In my last house there was always a Wasp Nest in the window outside my room, and occasionally a wasp would find a way into my room and I then I will have to kill it.

My family calls on me to kill the damn things. I'm totally alright with most bugs, so in the vast majority cases, I am perturbed for being interrupted to kill something harmless.

But I kill them anyway. Unless they call on me to kill something huge. We've had massive centipedes and caterpillars and all in the house, and I won't crush them. There's too much inside of them to make me comfortable crushing them. I don't want centipede juice all over my shoes or anything!

My brother uses the occasional mosquito on the wall or ceiling as target practice with a rubber band


Good ol' rubber band eyes

I only have problems with mosquitos and fly mostly, there too annoying thats were a hand full of rubber bands and a long rule comes in, you know your aim is good when you can decapitate a fly's head clean off, only other problem would be spiders which I tend to leave alone to catch other bugs unless the get in my way or I get a request to kill it which then I just deport them to the nearest exit.

My cat eats any bug it finds. I have bug zapper and when I happen upon and spider or centipede I jar them and have them pit against each other. Winner gets a meal.

Poor bugs T_T

My cat sometimes brings them in the house, if they're still alive, I catch them and set them free... usually, they aren't.

I wont kill spiders at all, but I will try to kill any other bug, especially those tiny flying ones, they tend to like my computer screen and its very annoying.

Im not really afraid to kill anything except roaches, I tend to bury them under paper towels (or in some sort of box) and then smash them when they cant escape, it saves cleaning and I dont have to touch them. I personally enjoy killing wasps (but not bees) because I got stung once so now I hate wasps. Its very fun to play baseball with a wasp and a broom, it makes a rather loud and satisfying sound when you make contact.

I usually leave them alone. If it's far away from me and not really doing anything I don't see the point in killing it. If it doesn't bother me then there is no need to. If there is a bug in front of me when I am on my computer I will kill it.

I killed this tarantula once that was in my front yard. It was pretty big and it took a long time to die.

Oh my god, you have tarantulas in your front yard!!?
I don't even think we have any insects or spiders that are leathal in Sweden, not even snakes. And I'm thankful for it. I freak out just seeing a harmless housespider... imagine me and a tarantula face to face, I would probably let out a scream that could scare Wes Craven... eek

I wonder if the kitty eats the bug with a belly full of eggs, will the kitty get sick and the larvae crawl out of the kitty while eating it from inside out?

Holy crap o_o

I must eat a whole nest then since I sleep with my mouth open.
(The drewl in the morning is proof of that.)
Not to mention I'm not really that fond of bugs ...
