Do you squash bugs when you find them in your house, or do you trap them under a cup and set them free outside?

Do you squash bugs when you find them in your house, or do you trap them under a cup and set them free outside? I only kill bugs when they violate the NAP.

    For some reason bumble bees keep getting in my house.
    I usually just pick them up with a piece of paper and put them outside, they usually don't even try to fly away, let alone sting me.

    I can't have them running all around. I was so aggressive, it seems like I didn't see one for years, but they are back every few days now. Kill on sight.

    I'm trying to get over my irrational fear of non dangerous spiders. The only spiders I let stay in my place is jumping spiders. I only kill brown recluses. Everything else I relocate to the garage. Maybe one day I can just let the wolf spiders be but until then they can hang in the garage. Used to smash every spider I saw so I'm getting a little better at conquering this dumb fear. Caught a wolf spider with babies on its back in a glue trap and set it free with olive oil and paper towels but unfortunately it died a little while after. Here's a wolfie I did manage to save though.

    If they are small, slow and tolerable, I either leave them be or trap them and carry them outside.
    I usually bring them outside, especially if I'm worried that they'll grow bigger or reproduce. I can handle flies but I don't like maggots so I bring them outside too.
    ...If they are big, fast and menacing, I either alert all residents in the apartment via one well practised high pitched scream and have them deal with it or I'll improvise a squishing weapon, like wrapping the end of a broom in a kitchen towel or similar and use it to murder the innocent bug.

    Anything that flies into my face gets squashed, I don't have the patience to deal with that shit.
    I put maybugs outside. They are a bit annoying, but kinda funny and easy to deal with.
    I try to move bees out, but some are uncooperative.
    Frick ants with extreme prejudice.
    Anything else, I don't really care. I know there some small centipedes living in my house, but they rarely show up in daylight.

    Scutigera (house centipede) bit my face during lockdown so now I have zero tolerance for them. I leave spiders and daddy long legs alone (except one time I got a wolf spider in the house). I kill yellow jackets and destroy the nests with fire.

    What bug? Spiders get to live if they just chill in a corner, however, all flies must die. Centipedes are fine because they usually only come out when I'm sleeping.

      I woke up to a concerning sight.
      Some spiders were having a conference while I was asleep.
      I do not know what was discussed, but I hope they agreed I'm their friend.

    I mostly get spiders.
    If it's on the wall/in a corner, I let it be.
    If it's crawling in the middle of the floor, I capture it in a glass and put it outside cause I don't want to step on it also I'm afraid of spiders.

    Spiders get sent into the furnace room so they can craw in my walls or whatever.
    Ladybugs, wasps, and bees get tossed outside.
    Almost everything else gets flushed down the toilet.

    Pretty much this. An exception for roaches.
    However, I have a cat and live in texas, so between him and the geckos bugs don't stand much of a chance in here.

    I kill most bugs I get in the house, in the winter I get nasty little millipedes that disgust me and flies piss me off. Occasional carpenter ants too which I can't stand. But spiders are frens, unless they're near my bed I usually just let them go about their business, or put them outside if they're in a place in which they'll get killed on accident.

      You're probably referring to Scutigera. Those are centipedes, not millipedes. They're a lot more valuable than spiders

        Nope the ones I get have long dark gray thin armored bodies and legs that are hidden underneath them, about 2 inches long max. Nothing like Scutigera. I often find them curled up already dead in corners but occasionally find them aimlessly and slowly crawling on the floor.

    Put them outside, not because of any concern for the lives of bugs, but because I don't want crushed bug guts all over my hands or possessions

    No. Not usually.
    I like having spiders in the house and let them mostly just do their spider stuff uncontested.
    When other insects do make their way in they don't usually last long before a spider gets them.

    I will catch moths and toss them outside, and there is a couple species of spider I would rather limit inside. Those are the only exceptions

      Same here, they are my greatests allies against insects and I really appreciate them for that. Also there aren't dangerous spiders in my region, so I don't have to worry at all about them.

            I just pay attention to the spiders now. They are always around doing their spider stuff but not everyone one gets to observe it. Most people interfere with the spiders in one way or another upon finding them.

    Set a fly free today. It would just stay near the window and didn't try to escape so I put it in a cup and let it go.

    As with any intruder, I kill them on sight. The only bugs I get in my place are gnats anyway, though I would feel bad about having to kill a bee bro.

    If it's not a roach or anything similar to a roach and it doesn't look like a roach. I will let it crawl in a napkin and place it outside.

    I let all spiders live inside, I kill centipedes.

    If it's on the floor I sweep it out.

    Downside to spiders has to be all the webs on the ceiling I need to clean up when they're emtpy.

    If I see one of those extremely tiny bugs randomly crawling I just let it live. It'll finish it's journey to the outdoors soon.

    I try to kill them less but I squash most when I get tired of them, I do try to catch them and free them more often, spiders are left alone unless moving in which case It's a squash unless they find the exit themelves
    Mosqitos, flying insects with a stinger get zapped and squashed, large flies too, flies in general.

    A spider that you find in your house has likely spent its entire life there, I see no reason why putting it outside should have a different result than releasing any other animal raised in captivity.

      carolina wolf and huntsman spiders technically aren't dangerous to people, but I still don't want one of those frickers giving me a kiss goodnight when I'm trying to sleep
      especially since they tend to roam around everywhere, rather than just hanging out in their webs in the closet
      if I see evidence of one in the house I'll hunt it down and remove it, dead or alive
