I had three of them in my livingroom the other night but i dont kill them either, i got my son to catch them and put them outside, i also put spiders or any kind of bugs outside. I couldnt kill something just because it happened to get inside my house lol. They dont bite or sting you so essentially they are harmless.

It would appear they have all but gone now, thank god.

I don't think my nerves could have taken much more. One was in the bedroom last night and I had no way of catching it so I had to just let it fly about. Took me ages to get to sleep, couldn't stop thinking about it.

Where I live they are part and parcel of country side living. I usually catch them in my hands and shoo them out the door because they have a tendency to get caught in my hair!!!!!

As to spiders they are like horses here galloping across the floor - tend to leave them alone they arent doing me any harm.

when i was in the infants school, there was a wall in the playground, and there was loads of them just crawling around, so we used to pull there legs off and watch the leg twitch, and i still remeber the teacher saying, how would you like it if someone pulled your legs off? my reply once was, but it's still got 5 left miss

I had one in my house the other night, I ended up peeping through a crack in the door while my daughter caught it and chucked it out the window.

I don't like the way they flutter about
