I don’t like getting into the insect discussion with non-vegans because as soon as you say that you don’t squash bugs, you immediately become one of “those people.” But when I saw Bugzooka, I had to mention it.
This wicked little device sucks bugs into a tube with a manly THWOOP noise, allowing you to humanely dispose of insects that have found their way into your house. Not only is it more humane than squashing them, it’s more fun and doesn’t require cleaning up bug guts afterwards. Bonus: no batteries required.
Incidentally, on the “why I don’t kill bugs” thing: to me, it doesn’t matter if a fly has the ability to feel pain or the desire to live or the wish to eat chocolate cake for dinner. I figure, if I don’t need to kill it or squash it, why bother? I’ll just move it outside, instead. It may not make the world a better place, but it doesn’t harm anything either. Plus, after a little while, even those bugs that always creeped you out don’t seem to bother you as much once you’ve dealt with them up close.
