Thankfully it's not required in my home.

Similar to what I have, though on mine there is no plastic on the inside where the "strings" are I can't believe I bought it at Target. The thing's dangerous

Nooooooooooo I've never crushed a bug Only a monster could do such a thing

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Oh, we also have moles in our yard from time to time that live underground and burrow beneath the surface. And when there are tunnels bumped up in the grass / dirt I poke a hole in the roof of the tunnel and drop poison pellets in. So, the next time they travel through an existing tunnel, hopefully they stop for their last supper. I've undoubtedly killed quite a few of those destructive pests.

My last house had a crawlspace for storage underneath it and I put mouse poison pellets around there; I found 3 dead mice during that time.

So I've killed quite a few things!

Many birds have committed suicide by flying into the windows of my house, too, but that's not my fault.

I've never struck a deer, thankfully, *knocks on wood*, but once I scared one when I honked at it (it was standing in the middle of the road) and it jumped down a rather step ravine ... so unless it was half-cat, I'm thinking Bambi broke a leg or two.

I was nice to the cute little chipmunks that burrowed under my pool liner and created a sinkhole.

I got a live trap and baited it with apples. When I caught them I drove them out to a field about five miles away and released them. Altogether I caught around 20 before I stopped.

They caused about $200 in needed repairs.
