Stupid questions on videogame forums, I know. But I'm kind of curious. I once found a spider in the corner of my ceiling. Since I would've had to strain to reach it, we agreed to some terms instead. She wouldn't leave the ceiling where I could see her, she wouldn't lay eggs, and she wouldn't bite me. In exchange, I'd be her domestic partner. I called her April.
One cozy December morning, I awoke to find April crushed aside me in bed. I reasoned that one of two things had happened: either she had run out of food on the ceiling and was coming to bite me, and I'd accidentally rolled onto her as she was going in for the kill - OR - she was aged and knew her time was up so she came to lay next to me for her dying moments. I wager the latter. What a dame.
All of the above. I get everything from ants, millipedes, moths, snails, spiders and worms in my bedroom. Whether I kill or befriend it depends on the bug.How the fuck do you get snails and worms in your bedroom? Somebody has to be putting them there. There's no way they just wander into a bedroom. Unless you have no floor, and basically just live on dirt.
It depends. Usually if I find a bug I'll just capture it and let it out, but sometimes (it depends on the circumstances and the bug) my entomophobia kicks in. If it does I just get the fuck out of there, close the door, and return later to see if it has left.
Bedroom: Kill It.
Any other room: Leave it alone unless it's large or right next to me, then kill it.
Any time I see a bug in my bedroom, it's always (ALWAYS) when I'm about to go to bed. I imagine it crawling all over my face while I'm asleep, even though there's probably a small chance it even gets to me.
I had a bad spider problem for a while. Every time the season changed, I'd get a ton of big, brown, hairy bastards in my basement. I found out that someone makes glue traps that catch them really well, and that basically stopped them. No more spider problem
If it's a spider, I kill it. I kill it dead. Forever.
Otherwise, I generally let 'em go. Unless I know they're going to a headache. Like flies (but they're easy enough to catch/kill). But if it's a case where I know there will be a number of them, like ants? That's when I pull out the heavy artillery.
I befriend it, and let it sleep in my bed.
Then I move to the couch.
Depends on the bug. Most of the time I'll leave spiders alone, they creep me out a little but I recognize that odds are they're not really going to ever do anything to actually bother me. Silverfish get squished, I just don't like them, and they're the most likely to actually show up IN my bed, and that shit don't fly. Moths I'll usually try to put back outside if I can.
I try not to kill spiders anymore, but I do not trust them. Still if I can jar them and throw them outside, my karma thing is cool. Rats below the house are a different matter, even if technically, they are up the ladder(though that may be debatable with some spiders!) Other bugs worry me, oh unless it was bedbugs. Then I would be disgusted and bummed.

I called her April.I once had a similar arrangement with a fine lady spider. I thought 'hell, she'll keep the flies and mosquitos at bay'. But then that treacherous bitch laid eggs and I had to slaughter an entire brood.
Now I give no quarter.
Funny thing is that I just had a spider crawl across my laptop screen a few minutes before I checked this thread out. Naturally, I threw my laptop onto the floor (i'm lying on the couch, so luckily the short fall didn't break it) and jumped 4 feet away.
@PeasantAbuse: Why haven't I thought of that before? That's actually a pretty good idea.
It's funny. I've gotten to the point where I'll try to peacefully escort spiders outside, unless they're in my room. My room is a restricted area. If they enter, they die. I'll either kill it, or wait until it's in striking distance and THEN KILL IT! There's no way out, spiders! AHAHAHA!
If it's my room, C with either the Flamethrower or Shotgun. Whichever I manage to fumble for and grab first. Repair costs have been quite a bitch, but since my room is usually 20 degrees colder than any other room they stay out for the most part.
If it's not in my room, then depending on random things I'll leave it be, kick the leeching bum out, or kill it.
It depends on the kind of bug. A spider, I would either leave alone or sick my dogs on it. But ants (which are a big problem in my area), I go on a raid for. And I don't mean Raid like the product, but raid like a big effin MMO we're gonna take down this sonofa....
