Bug, mouse, or any other living thing running around your house?

Do you kill it, release it back into the wild, make it your pet?

My whole life I've been killing things in my house. After I watched some Mushishi it made me think that they aren't doing

anything wrong, just living how they can so I've started catching them and putting them back outside.

So, what do you do?

I run for the hills and I cower in fear in the presence of bugs. It's a combination of their creepy crawlyness and "uncleanliness".

And I don't like smashing them, so I try to get them back outside.

Anything else it doesn't matter.

If they're not bothering me, I just leave them alone or catch-and-release them into my garden.

you see, my doors are hard to open, so if it's a small bug or a spider, i gently scoop it up with a piece of paper... then throw it in the toilet and flush it.
if it's a fly/mosquito i take my electrifying racket and electrocute it... the chuck it in the toilet and flush it.
if it is a living organism bigger than two fingers, i let it out of my house.

Depending on exactly what the "living thing" is. If it's a rat, spider, moth, or insect, I will:



If a harmless bird or a rabbit, I would open the door and let it be freee

It depends on what it is. Rats and mice don't bother me - I have pet rats so I'm used to them, my only worries about wild ones are fleas and other parasites, and the fact that they might bite if cornered. I still think they're cute though I would try to catch them and let them go somewhere where they wouldn't get run over or caught in a trap.

I can cope with most insects, if it's a small moth I leave it alone, bigger ones I would try to catch and let go outside. Same with beetles. Flies sometimes end up dead if I can't catch them and they keep buzzing round me, wasps are vicious things so I usually kill them but bees get released.

Spiders are a different matter. Little ones I leave alone, but I'm terrified of the bigger ones. I can't catch them as I just can't cope with them, so they tend to wind up dead. I don't like killing things though, it feels like bad karma.

Insects and spiders I kill. Everything else (meaning they're bigger), I'd probably trap or try to get it to move elsewhere.

I leave them mostly unless they're being too obstructive.

If it's a spider.. I run away while screaming my head off.. my boyfriend is the one who kills spiders in our house!
If it's some type of flying bug.. I'll kill it.. unless it's a bee.. I'm deathly allergic so that task fall to my boyfriend as well.
Never had anything bigger like a mouse or rat but if I did I'd probably set down a trap to catch it & release it back into the wild.

If the bug is small enough to fit in a cup container, I let it out into the wild. The only bug I could care less about is a cockroach. There is just way too many of those buggers. A mouse I let it out into the wild too before my kids think it's a new chew toy. We have a lot of snakes that live outside around the house that would love to feast on the mouse.

If it's a spider, centipede, something that flies or anything with a lot of legs, I'd ask my siblings to kill it. If I'm alone, I'll have to grow a backbone and do it myself.
I hope I never find a rat in my home. I won't leave my room if I do. D:
Other insects I don't mind annihilating.
