I found yet another fly and yet another cockroach in the house this morning. I hate to think what's in store for summer.

I hate spraying or swatting bugs, so fling them outside if possible. If there's no way of getting them out alive, I swat.

Do you prefer to spray or swat bugs?

I like Both.

If I can't get the spray, because the bug will go....then my shoe comes off like a Ninja.
No BuG survives in my home!

I prefer to swat, I'm not a chemical fan.
I also prefer to swat because I hate using chemicals in the house!
by Vee
I no longer have a swat and I hate squashing animals, so I have spray which does not hurt ME as much as squashing one!

It is one of the only chemicals I do have in the house as I use organic everything and no chemicals as use Enjo products.

I dont have many bugs in the house though as I DO get sprayed professionally for spiders -well I DON'T but I get the house sprayed outside and do not get them inside.

I hate fly spray. I don't want it getting on food and I don't think it's safe for children and pets, or other beneficial insects and spiders. If I fly gets in I swat it.
I much rather to swat them. Spraying leaves an annoying scent that lingers longer than I would like.
Oh it's disgusting, isn't it?! It gives me headaches.

Spray!

'I'm Louis da fly! Louis da fly, spreading disease with the greatest of ease, straight from rubbish tip to you! I'm bad, I'm mean, & mighty unclean'.........
I hate flies!

Swat and catch, yum. You can't fry up sprayed bugs. YUK.
cockroaches
So do you spray them or swat them, jimsw?
by Vee
We spray them. They often fly away to places hidden, that are inaccessible to any fly swatter. They dart around and move so quickly, before I can catch them, so I use fly spray.
I do both, with flies I swat,with spiders I spray, the sooner there gone the better.
I do not like sprays and wonder if they are more harmful than the insects in some cases. I use insense or mossie coils outdoors to deter mosquitoes. I swat flies or open the windows and turn on the fan encouraging them to leave. I had a beautiful big spider web outside my kitchen window. The web glowed golden in the sunlight. I was happy to send flies that way. I use baits for cockroaches. We have a lot of ghekos so they keep the insect population in check also.
