Thumbs up Whats the last thing you killed?

My son destroyed a chameleon yesterday in front of our house.

But, I had to end the life of a Monster sized CockaRoach in the bathroom last night. It was kinda exicting. He was lurking ontop of the doorway all big and bad.. his antennae were twitching about.

I knew i needed heavy artillery for this bad boy. a rooled up newspaper was not gonna work on this sole sized bug-beast.

I went out to the garage area and grabbed a can of Hot Shot Flying Insect killer.


I came back to the bathroom and he was still there. I gave him a quick zap and he fell to the ground. he ran around furiously trying to escape the poison i just laid on him.

he ran in to the cabinet then back out again. a couple times he came near me and i had to jump.

I gave him another zap and he started to slow down. this stuff is pretty poerful i thought to myself. he rooled onto his back and i knew it was over.

I had to smash him with a paper towel (just to be sure) then i put him in the toilet!


What was the last thing you killed?

Last night, I smashed a giant African snail. Every time I see one, I pick it up and fling it down hard on the road or sidewalk to crack the shell. I know I probably can't make enough of a dent in the population to make a difference, but I try anyway.

Was an ant.

My relationship with the insect world is: stay off my body and I will leave you alone, get on my body and I will do my best to eliminate your existence.

I ain't the Dalai Lama, wasn't sent here to feel "compassion for all living beings". (And I wonder if he never swatted a mosquito, anyway?)

Squished one of those 747 Cockroaches last night in my driveway.

Today i killed 14 flies. Not all at once but one at a time. I was sitting outside relaxing when all of a sudden I saw one land on the bench. I had to run in the house to get my fly swatter. When I got back there must have been five of them. I started swatting them but 2 got away and brought back reinforcements. Seems like I was at it for an hour before I gave up and went inside.

I'm using the Roach motels to catch them. So far they don't even rate being a 737.

We recently 'fog bombed' my mom's house for fleas. There were plenty of survivors, though. More than a few roaches were taken out in the crossfire, despite not being the primary target.

Termites are starting to swarm, but they're a little harder to fight...

This morning, I also had to kill a roach. I entered the shower, and proceeded to turn on the water, when I saw this big roach hanging onto the showerhead. That was the worst awakening I ever had. I then proceeded to go and get the fly swatter and when I came back, I murdered that animal.

Late last night I did one of those "one-handed, ninja moves" to squish a mosquito in mid-flight.
Secretly followed by my Bruce Lee quick-head-jerk to see if there was another one behind me...

I just killed a family of slugs by throwing then into the chicken coop. I really wish those slugs would leave my plants alone. I get plenty of grass and weeds but they seem to prefer all my other plants....LOL

A housefly. I'm perversely proud that I am fast enough to (sometimes) snatch a fly out of the air. Of course, that means that when I do, I get fly guts all over my hand. Maybe this isn't such a great skill after all.

737...roach. Roaches are the one reason my daughter has no yearning to move back to Hawaii...where she lives in N CA. there aren't any visible roaches...I see ants by the dozens but no roaches.

Yep, I agree with mocha's daughter.....No way do I miss all those big roaches they seem to fly at ya when you least expect it. I live in N. CA also and haven't expirienced any roaches.
My worse fear was when they would fly out of the bushes and I would be talking and one would fly in my mouth....LOL.

I killed some kind of black beetle that came flying into my apartment last night. It landed on my tape case and I smacked it with a rolled up MidWeek. Print media to the rescue!

Co-worker sceamed when entering the restroom. Had turned on the light and something close to the light switch moved which turned out to be a 747 size roach.

The roach got stunned by a sneaker and fell in a handy trash can.

So what Kukui....was it bad germs? hahahaha.

I decided to put out a fly trap and now get plenty flies stuck to them. I plan to put out a wasp trap soon. I'll let you know if it works.

My worst nightmare in Mililani!

I stepped on the darn thing, and luckily I didn't get stung. Da buggah was AT LEAST 6"! No shizzle. I had the heebee-gee-bees after that.......I mutilated that buggah into multiple pieces.

Lol @ the heavy artillery.


I indirectly killed a rock crab this past weekend. we were feeding fish in the harbor behind the Ilikai. The crabs near the wall were grabbing bread as well.

A huge Puffer fish came and snatched a piece of bread with a crab attatched to it. He ate the bread, then came back ate the crab!

It was cool to watch.

Well the fly and wasp traps are working. The fly trap stinks but it does the job. Must have hundreds of dead flies right now. Not much wasp, they must be smarter.
mosquitoes haven't been out much, but maybe cause it's been so dry and hot. But kukui nut gots the right idea...heavy artillery...LOL.
