Many vegans catch and release spiders, go out of their way not to step on ants, rescue bees and other bugs from swimming pools as well as performing many other acts of insect kindness, but what do you do with those insects whose major objective is to bring you discomfort and possibly disease? It’s the middle of the night, you are trying to sleep but there is a little mosquito buzzing next to your ear and you know that if you don’t do something, you will ultimately be bit at least once, so what do you do? This is a question presented to me by a non vegan and as usual I am interested in others’ perspective. How many people who dedicate their lives to not harming animals take the same stance when it comes to the creepy crawlies or flying pest? Do you kill mosquitoes?
