Sunday Poser # 86

Welcome back to another Sunday Poser

This week my question is;

Bugs; Do you love, hate or tolerate them?

The summer season brings bugs with it. I don’t mind the flies and mosquitoes as long as they stay outside the house but when they invade the inner sanctum, so to say, they become pests to be gotten rid of.

Similarly, other crawling insects like cockroaches and spiders aren’t welcome inside either. When we moved into this home, we used a bug exterminator who guaranteed 5 years bug-free home. Now that it is a bit more than 5 years, I can see a few of the crawlies here and there. But for complete fumigation, one has to leave the premises for at least a couple of days so that is a difficult option right now.

What about you, do you tolerate these insects/ bugs or hate them? What steps up take to keep your home bug free?

Please share your thoughts in the comments section or you can write your own post and link it to this one so that I can find it.

As usual, thanks of visiting and reading.

  1. I mostly tolerate I guess. I don’t want to see any of them INSIDE my house of course, and really icky ones like cockroaches will be killed outright (I don’t nor never had any cockroaches in my home btw), I once rented an apartment (my first one on my own) and got to know about them very well. Gahh. They still ick me out. The other one that will die if I catch sight of it is the spider. Big, small, teensy weensy – doesn’t matter. I’ll freak out and scream, and these days I have to kill the damned thing because hubby was the designated spider killer in our house in the day. Brrrrr 🕷🕸🕷 Ewww. And yes they are all God’s creatures, and deserve to live out their lives unbugged (😆) by humans bent on bug-o-cide, but they should know better than to go in my house. Now if you’re talking about the other kind of bug (might be called that primarily in America), aka the beetle (car)…I’d tolerate that just fine. Vintage ones in good working order go for about .. well who knows these days. They’re charging more than $5 for a small container of watermelon…so they could be asking A LOT for such a car….Yep.

    1. Beetle bug is a cute car though trifle small for me. The rest of the bugs can live outside but not in my house. I hate cockroaches 🪳 too.


      1. Nastiest bug critter going! And they adapt to all the mess humans are doing to the world. So at the end of times I envision humans dying off (by our own hand), but humongous cockroaches running everywhere. Brrrr 😦 🐜🐛

  2. Bugs? Nope not for me. Not bad as a child but huge spiders in the bay barn and woodshed terrified me and they still give me the chills. In Texas all bugs were rampant in the humidity and we had to have an exterminator come out every few weeks. Our first house had a cedar shingle roof that was heaven for roaches and a haven too😂

  3. Flies during the day and mosquitoes at night are such a pain! Wire mesh doors become a necessity in our part of the world! Staying in apartments saves one from other creepy crawlies that bother those staying in houses ( and especially with gardens! )

    1. Completely agree with you Punam. The mosquitoes come with other curses like dengue and malaria so it is necessary to protect against them. Screen doors are a blessing.

  4. Luckily I don’t get to many creepy crawlies where I currently live, with the exception of ants, which I do not like at all. I’ve figured out a way to deal with them, yet they always seem to be lurking. 😅

  5. We had a service to come once a month when we had a pet dog. We never stopped it. I dislike bugs in the house. Outside they help the enviornment. I do wish they wouldn’t like biting me so much!

      1. ‘They’ are only trying to survive. I’m sure the ‘bug’ isn’t aware if it carries disease or of how distructive ‘they’ can be. Hard to balance the need for bugs to pollinate but to not be annoying or harmful.
