I kill that bitch

#3 Posted by mikeeegeee (1575 posts) -

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.

If it's scary then I run away screaming and hope when I come back that it's gone. If it's not scary then I kill it and laugh at it for being such a pussy.

#5 Edited by mikeeegeee (1575 posts) -

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.

E. Other - First of all I scream like a little girl for a solid 5 minutes. Afterwards I nuke that son of a bitch with everything I have.

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.

I just take it outside.

Daaaaaaw BUUUUUGS I VACUUM IT RIGHT UP

#12 Posted by JJOR64 (19065 posts) -

Kill it.

#13 Posted by MisterDunlap (242 posts) -

My house is infested with cellar spiders, so it's just a waste of time trying to kill them all. I just ignore them most of the time. Every month or two I vacuum them all up, but they repopulate within the week. So "B."

#14 Posted by mikeeegeee (1575 posts) -
@EVO: You get worms? And I guess you're right, it is a case by case basis. Fuck centipedes. I don't play that.

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.

I don't usually find bugs in my room tbh

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.

#19 Posted by wjb (1696 posts) -

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.

apply heavy force, with my foot.

#21 Posted by monstersnsoup (80 posts) -

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

#22 Posted by Dany (7887 posts) -

I kill it. I'm no monster.

#23 Posted by Makoto_Mizuhara_Sakamoto (592 posts) -

After watching "Aliens" for the umpteenth million time, I hafta ask- where'd I put the shotgun?

#24 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6789 posts) -

Mostly kill it, unless it's a moth or granddaddy long legs or something that is pretty/useful/nice, then I put them outside.

#25 Posted by TwilitEnd656 (617 posts) -

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.

Set the entire house on fire. best way to deal with bugs.

#27 Posted by iDarktread (1189 posts) -
#28 Posted by FateOfNever (1855 posts) -

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.

#29 Posted by bybeach (4994 posts) -

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.

#30 Posted by MattBosten (497 posts) -

Depends where in my room I find it. If it's on my bed it's getting thrown outside, if it's on the ceiling then I'll leave it be.

#31 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5138 posts) -

I suck em up in one of those handheld vacuum duster things and then let them slowly die in there.

#32 Posted by ImpendingFoil (555 posts) -

I get really quiet and then start giving the Russian bastards who placed it there false information so I can set up a clever ambush on them later.

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.

#35 Posted by Turtlebird95 (2609 posts) -

I like most bugs, so I tend to leave them be. If it's something I don't want in my house I'll put it outside (alive). If it's a hornet I'll make sure it's dead. Fuck those things.

#36 Posted by McGhee (6075 posts) -

It depends on how big and ugly it is and if it gets on my nerves. If you keep flying onto my PC screen you get squashed.

#37 Posted by LiquidPrince (16169 posts) -

Kill it. I've warned the fuckers to stay clear of my room.

#38 Posted by NoCookiesForYou (764 posts) -

Kill it with fire.

#39 Edited by Kandycane2029 (511 posts) -
Depends on what it is. If it's a spider, KILL THAT MOTHERFUCKER SONOFABITCH!! I have pretty bad arachnophobia, so if I see a spider I scream like a sissy and run. 

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.
#40 Posted by darkdragonmage99 (741 posts) -

ignore them why waste my time killing bugs  
 
I mostly get lots and lots of lady bugs during the fall

#41 Posted by KillyDarko (1888 posts) -

I pick it up, open the window and put it outside.

#42 Posted by Buscemi (1106 posts) -

Oh, man, once when I sat at my desk I saw something big and black moving down the wall to my right and when I turned it was totally a spider. That was a fun day, for sure.

#43 Posted by BeachThunder (12410 posts) -

I check online to see if there's a patch.

#44 Posted by TheGreatGuero (9130 posts) -

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!

#45 Posted by Capum15 (4992 posts) -

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.

#46 Posted by melcene (3034 posts) -

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....
#47 Posted by Yanngc33 (4461 posts) -

I kil it and leave its dead exploded body on the wall, as an example to the other bugs, warning them that they should think twice before entering my room

#48 Posted by Abigailnn (52 posts) -

scream, freak out, go to another room and stay there for awhile

unless its tiny, like a baby spider or something, then i ignore it

#49 Posted by Vexxan (4612 posts) -

It shall meet its maker!

Kill it!

#50 Edited by apoptosis61 (568 posts) -

get the fuck out and pray it go away
