Do you kill bugs in front of your children?

Hi!

I try to teach my kids to treat all living creatures with respect, but when a spider or fly gets in the house I take out the fly swatter and...SPLAT! How do I explain that? What do you do when bugs get in your house?

     Yes, I kill them and I explain that some bugs are pests and can take over the home or are dangerous to people and should be killed if they're inside. I don't kill anything outside, though, since that's where they belong. The kids have learned the distinction.

    We dont kill bugs - we take them outside.
