No, i do not step on them purposely. I might use some insecticide if i do encounter some cockroaches but i don't step on them . I am afraid to kill them, i don't know why but i feel guilty in some way if i did.

For the cockroach I do step on them purposely. I don't like cockroach. As for the ants I don't have anything againts them as long that they don't bite me. They are safe from me.

As lilaclady said above, everything has a will to live. I had seen a few videos about insects. They are willing to live though their living environment is so bad. They struggle and try their best to be alive. Enven the insects can do it. Should me, the human, has any reason to give up?

I always feel guilty when and if I kill an insect, but sometimes I let my fear get to me and I have to get rid of the bug by killing them, now if I can somehow get them outside without any possibility that it will touch me I will do my best to get it outside, but I have a horrible phobia when it comes to every single insect out there, I will become so scared and freaked out if I come in contact with one. I absolutely hate taking lives though, I see the insects life as valuable as a human life, equal to mine, but I guess it is easier to kill an insect instead of a human or an animal because there is no bond between humans and insects really, we live in separate social worlds, so it is just easier to do away with insects, though I still do not like it at all. I try my best not to kill them when I can. Happy mylotting, and have a great day or night!

yes i do in a way, I believe everything has a will to live and has the right to live, we all play our part, I don't kill snails in my garden as I don't like to kill them, they can eat some of my plants if they want, I am cool with that.
