I am a bug smasher too, like Kate. Usually if they are in the house, they are dead if I can get to them. Especially big "palmetto bugs" which I call huge roaches that we have down here in the south that still kind of freak me out. But I also kill mosquitos, we have tons of those in spring, summer, and fall. Ants I usually don't bother or grasshoppers but I will kill a cricket too if it is in the house because it is either my sanity or their life.
I would also like to have chickens. Here in Atlanta as residents, we are legally able to keep 4 chickens on our property in the city. DH wants to move, if he didn't and weren't serious about it, I would buy some chickens and a coop. I know a lot of people with chickens and I love fresh eggs. They are MUCH better than the store kind, even the "organic" store kind aren't as good IMO.
I wouldn't have a problem killing animals for food either. My aunt said I was gross because the other day I told her I would eat squirrels if "the world as we know it" were to end and there were no stores and we lived in the wilderness. As ladies who have been here a while know, I am not all that into camping and such, I like hiking but like my house and see camping as voluntary homelessness, but if it came to it, I would live outside and be free in the wilderness and wouldn't have any problems eating just about anything after killing/skinning it. I had a gr grandpa who ate squirrel, racoons, opossums, and other "varmin" from the yard. He was very "country" according to my gr grandma and she would frown up at him. But squirrel and rabbit stews were pretty good. I didn't eat the opossums since I thought they were too ugly to eat as a child, but I would eat one as an adult and would kill them even though I wouldn't want to look at their ugly faces lol.
