• Bugs/Insects?

    How do you feel towards bugs/insects? Do you apply the same humane guidelines that you do others animals to bugs/insects? Personally, I like to save them and toss them outside. I don’t feel especially guilty if I kill one. It just seems strange to me to be kind to the larger creatures, but not to the little ones. I’m not sure if insects do feel pain or not (certain sources say one thing, certain say the other, although most say they don’t), but it also just feels like it is benefiting the local ecosystem to have the bugs released back into the wild.

    @sentinel65 That wouldn’t be saving it if it’s wing is broken. I was wondering if there is a way to save insects that seem doomed like that.

    @peacelovepie I think she meant she released it from her home, or some other indoor area.

    I do for some bugs . The good ones like daddy long legs, bee’s & even some spiders I have no clue about, but I am weary about some spiders b.c a lot of them do bite & can make you really sick & even die.. so if it’s a spider I am unaware of I try to just get it out the house without touching it, but if it’s a brown lacrosse spider I kill it when they bite they make giant holes in your skin & you end up in the hospital for days & it’s very painful. One time they made a giantic hole all the way down to the flesh talk about painful worse then having a baby. Oh & mosquito’s they carry the nile virus & we have it here close it’s been in the paper so if they land on me I kill em(beside’s mosquito’s bites are no good.)… & ticks they also carry dieases and are no good for humans or animals. Most bugs outside I don’t bother only the ones I know that are harmful.

    At work I don’t even kill the bugs I find in rooms I pick them up & throw em outside & not a lot people would do that b.c there bugs, but I don’t see killing something that is not going to hurt you.

    Bee’s I like them all even though they sting I don’t mind it because I am not allergic and I heard if they sting you it gives you immunity, I never kill a bee I even let them land on me, they don’t sting unless they feel threatened most of the time, but if someone is allergic I can see where they might freak out & stay as far as they can and even try to kill it b.c being allergic to bee’s can really kill someone quick depending on how bad it is.

    @SkiVegChick: How did you ensure the survival of a bee that cannot fly?
