When I was a kid I'd go outside and try to hit as many fireflies as I could with a big wiffle ball bat. Looking back on it, that's pretty horrifying. I recall once hitting over 120 in an hour.

Soooo...how many heads do you have in your freezer, and do you bury all the bodies in the same area, or spread them around?

I don't want anything in my house and for some reason I have a special hatred of flies.  I'll gas the whole family with bug spray to take down a fly.

But this reminded me of when I was a kid.  In the spring, me and my brother would catch fireflies and sneak them into my parents bedroom so that later that night when all was dark they would get a nice light show.  But if my kids did that to me i'd be pretty pissed.

Taking out 120 fireflies in one hour? That's pretty impressive, Fox only took out one.
Listen! Do you smell something?

It took me way too long to get that joke. Nice.

I catch everything and release them outside, except cockroaches.

If they get in the house, it's already a death sentence regardless of what I do.  I'm not gonna show em the door.  :lol

Go figure after making this thread and turning off my AC for a few days, I come home and find a gargantuan house centipede chilling in my bathroom sink. UGH.
