    Typically, yes - particularly spiders, moths, butterflies, caterpillars, crane flies, and millipedes.

    There are a few that I'm indifferent to (if something lands on me repeatedly, it may get forcefully removed with little regard to damage).

    However, I aim to kill mosquitos. I also will kill ants or wasps if they are inside my home - I am scared of them and not gonna play around.

    Hell no I don't feel bad about killing them. They are called bugs for a reason. They bug you and I hate all bugs/insects.     ...except fuzzy bumblebee's...

    I hate cockroaches, but if they leave as soon as I shoo them with a broom, I don't have to spray them. For ants, I would try not to kill them in any way.

    YES or NO?
    And is it any bug? Or only certain insects?
    I try to not kill spiders but if they get close to me i will kill them. But i wont seek them out in corners etc as they eat mosquitos.

    I dont feel guilty

    yes. i usually only kill mosquitoes though because i think that i should fight only my "parasites", but sometimes i feel guilty for them too that's why i often just try to hit without killing them (probably the dumbest thing you'll ever heard but you asked so...), at least until they keep their distance.

    as for all the others, i try to catch them and let them free where they can't annoy me and/or won't hurt themeselves.

    that's a great question.

    I know most creatures on this planet have a reason to be here eg bee to pollinate (other flies do this also) worms to fertilize (not the only one to do this) etc the list could go on forever.

    so in a way yes BUT when you know what an insect does (I watched too many nature documentaries) you cannot help feel disgusted if they land or crawl on you.

    one doesn't think twice about getting them off by all means necessary. But one does not seek to eradicate them otherwise (we try to live in mutual tolerance of them so long as they don't get too close haha)

    Ha yes. Daddy long legs. Thats their nickname in the uk. They have never bothered me.

    I dont like wasps and spiders but i dont go out of my way to kill them .. My cat however maybe ushered into the room to 'take care' of them ...

    I cant stand moths .. If there is a moth in my bedroom i cant sleep unless i know its gone. Most of the time i bat them out of the window, but sadly sometimes more 'drastic' measures have to be taken.

    My cat is quite elderly now so sadly he cant do much 'disposal work' anymore but he does his best :P

    Forum signatures make my eyes hurt so i have turned them off.
