Do you feel bad about killing bugs?

    I went to the bathroom and there was a small centipede near the sink. I didn't want him running around because my little sister is often in that same bathroom, brushing her teeth, washing her hands; but at the same time I did not want to kill the little fellow. I kinda pushed him into the sink with a napkin, hoping he would go down the drain hole himself. He didn't. I wanted to turn on the water but just felt so sad for him. I tried to get him onto a napkin in order to throw him out of the window but he kept running away from it; I kind of thought "Little thing is trying not to die" Kind of made me feel eerie. Couldn't force myself to kill it so I just left it there.
    I had killed a much bigger centipede 5 minutes earlier. Had not sympathy for that one lol


    So, do you feel bad about killing bugs?

    Bugs have like 1 braincell and theres approximately 200 million insects on this planet for every person.

    Still, I don't like killing them :)

    Bugs are living creatures. I avoid killing anything if I can. When my wife yells about a spider I catch it and take it outside.

    Ah I feel bad for killing bugs, but i only kill them if they really deserve it. Keep annoying me, such as mosquitoes biting me or having random bugs in my food.

    If they are in my house, I kill them and I don't feel bad. It's not like I kill them for fun, that's just what I do to get rid of them...

    If they are outside, I generally leave them alone.

    No I don't... Do they feel bad when they bite or annoy us? Feeling is mutual :D

    I must admit - I do feel bad about killing bugs.

    Spiders - out the window.

    Any other bugs apart from cockroaches - out the window.

    I must say, I think the UK is probably the most bug-free country in the world. Perhaps we killed them all with insecticide!

    I feel really bad, even if it happens when I step on one accidentally when I'm outside. They're living creatures too and we don't have the right to go around and kill them. :)

    Depends on the bugs. If I accidentaly killed a spider I will feel bad but cockroaches I step on sight.

    I only feel guilty when i abuse their dead bodies... sexually...




    On a serious note i don't kill them unless they get in front of my monitor or something and considering that some of the bugs only live for a few days... naaah...
