Question of the Day

Are you a bug crusher or a bug relocater?

When I find a bug indoors, I try to relocate to the Great Outdoors if at all possible—especially spiders and moths and daddy longlegs (longlegses?), which are our three most common visitors. Even bees and wasps and houseflies I'll try to usher gently out the door or window.

Two exceptions: Ants and mosquitoes, who get smashed without compunction.

We don't get cockroaches, but I suppose if we did, I'd be highly unlikely to enter them into the bug relocation program, too.
