[Comments] (4) Things I Will Kill:: Female black widows. Snails. Cockroaches. Earwigs. Ants. Fleas. Ticks. Mealybugs. Flies. Skeeters.

Things I Won't Kill Anymore: Random Spiders. Assorted bugs. Snakes (not even rattlesnakes). Scorpions. Tarantulas.

I could never raise an animal for meat and kill it. My list of what I will kill gets shorter year by year. I guess I'm getting softer and softer. I don't think the above kill list will get any shorter anymore now, however.

Would you please come kill my mealybugs? They won't go away.

Why not snakes and scorpions?

They are predators that kill off annoying garden pests, no?

Yes, and they won't bother people if people don't bother them. I guess that's true of black widows too, but they are so little you don't see them until they are bothered.
