Yep, my dad works across the way from the nest box. All of the San Marcos people loved to watch it.

My boyfriend's quite sensitive about things being eaten alive. He won't even want to feed a brine shrimp to my Betta. Says it's my job.

Does that mean it's your job to kill spiders too? Must admit, while I will fearlessly do battle with a spider....I don't like them one bit. Agent you are safe - no pet spiders.

I don't kill them. I take them outside and release them.

That's killing at this time if year, no? Hehe. I admit I haven't seen a house spider in so long. I just let them do their thing yhough and leave them be. Just the daddy long legs that surround my canister filter in the basement.

My friend got a baby tarantula that I want to go meet soon!

Actually, some types of creatures will live under the snow and survive. In any case, I just release them year round. I will only actively kill a creature if it's suffering.

I used to kill gophers, but now I feel sympathy and don't kill anything. THe other day, a neighborhood cat caught a gopher and I shooed him away. My sister and I offered it water and helped it back to it's hole.

I can't stand killing anything after what I have seen on YouTube.
