Yup. I take it back. There is one, just one, I'd put up with. LADYBUG.
I don't want all of them dead, just the one's living by me. Anti-social, I am. Besides, what would the beneficials eat?

Ticks. Nasty disgusting worthless creatures.
Roaches also worthless.
Otherwise, bugs are cool. I like bugs.
I especially like bugs that don't bother me.
My favorite bugs are hive creatures. Fascinating!

I don't hate insects so much as I hate reptiles, especially house lizard or Hemidactylis frenatus.

North and South Georgia are seperated but what's known here as the gnat line. Nobody has to tell you when you've crossed it. You'll know. If you get out of your car south of the gnat line on a hot summer day, they will attack your eyes, ears, nose and mouth with a vengence. They'll have you heading for cover in a hurry!

You're not kidding about those gnats. Went to Perry GA last July and couldn't even sit outside!

There are two I despise. One is termites. They live very well outside, feasting on soft wood, dead branches, etc. All they need to survive is a little water. Every spring they swarm and every spring I watch them to make sure they are not enticed by my house. I watch for tunnels. I have the house inspected annually, They are destructive.

The other is fire ants. First they bite, then they sting, injecting some sort of venom. We don't get bitten by one or two, but by 10-20. It makes me angry that these little critters cause so much discomfort.

With all the birds I get around here, one would think they keep the bugs away by eating them. Perhaps I should take down my bird feeders. :-)

bugs and such like belong outside. If they come to visit me inside, they will not live long, sorry. Other than that I'm pretty tolerant.
