I used to be conceited, but now I'm perfect.
I believe everything in Nature has it's place. Like Trev I'd flipped it over and let it go about it's job.
Bugs shouldn't get stuck on their back. It was dying. No saving it.
I'd flip the bug over and end up as a benevolent diety worshipped by all bugs, who would obey my first commandment about staying out of my house and groceries.
All creatures great and small.
If he's trying, I'd flip him over.
If he's a lazy bug always looking for someone else to do his work, I'd let him lay there and let nature take him out before he breeds.
Yes I'm that heartless.
Centipedes, roaches, ants, flies, mosquitoes, Jack Spaniards, and the like get the boot.
Innocuous creatures like beetles get a helping hand.
I’ve saved honey bees, Jack Spaniards, grasshoppers, dragon flies, ladybugs, and a host of other creatures from my pool. This includes a deer but that’s another story
You see a beetle laying on its back, legs flailing and trying to get the right way up. Do you...
Replace beetle by human, and I wouldn't do anything or :
"S'il n'y avait pas d'humains sur terre, qu'est-ce qu'on serait tranquille !" (me)
What type of person are you?
I'm rather of the misanthropic type...
But it's me, OK ?
I'm that guy.
That guy who stops traffic to rescue a turtle trying to cross the road.
I rescue bugs and spiders who find themselves lost in the long hallway at work.
Fearful that they will dehydrate and die, I capture them, and then put them outside in the dewy grass (so they have a chance to live).
This one time, a few summers ago, I was crossing the hangar floor, and spotted a june bug on his back, arms flailing weakly.
I scooped him up, and carried him outside, and put him in the grass, in the shade of a tall lamp post.
Went and picked up a water bottle, and walked back out there to pour some water onto his new environment.
A passing mechanic spotted me, and said, "Uh Sparky, what in the world are you doing?"
I filled him in on my habit of rescuing insects, and making sure they had water and a safe place to pursue life.
"But it's just a bug. Most people would just walk on by, or step on it."
"I can't do that. It's a living creature. I'm weird that way."
The young guy shook his head, and went on about his business.
Don't you know that, a half hour later, I spotted him out there, pouring more water onto the grass at the base of that lamp post?
Depends--is it an emerald Ash borer? If so, STOMP
Once my wife spent about an hour giving water and sugar to a bumblebee, got it a bit pepped up and put it on a flower where it was more or less immediately eaten by a bird.
Thats OK too, still a good deed in the circle of life.
I don't need insects to know that I am an opinionated something or other...
That's what I tell her when we see the hawk sitting in the tree checking out the bird feeder...
Pull it’s legs off one by one, yank his wings off, then do a brain scan with a needle! ......Is that a little harsh?? Ok JK, honestly I usually use my index finger and “flick it” especially with stink bugs!!
I'm a curmudgeon tired of all the malarkey! Flip the darn thing over and be on your way.
You need one more choice, "Roast and eat".
I'm a softee--I'm with you on the 1st half, but I got a good chuckle from this.
Welp, I ain’t gonna kill it while it’s helpless on it’s back.
ever since i saw "james and the giant peach" i've been nice to most bugs.
