I'm able to kill rodents, bees, & spiders. I've got some weird insect phobias though. Killing grasshoppers, crickets, those big 'waterbug' roaches, moths, or locusts is completely out of the question. I will call my husband (whilst freaking out) in a second to take care of them. He knows his bug killing responsibilities well. If I am not at home, any able bodied male or female around will be asked to take care of it. I could care less if it is a person of the opposite sex or not. I'm looking for competency only when it comes to this type of problem.
