This may be a silly comment but it is one that I am having trouble with and I need some input from others on this forum about it. I live in So. California. I have a big yard with lots of plants and bushes etc. My problem is about about bugs....spiders, crickets, snails etc. These are sentient beings and I know a Buddhist must avoid killing any sentient being. What does one do if there is a huge, black widow someplace in your house or on your patio. What does one do if you happen to be afraid of these things. I know I am giving some of you a giggle but I am not really trying to. This is a serious question for me. I am very afraid of spiders in the house. When I see a big garden spider in the house I just freak.......I have to call my daughter who will put it outside. If I call my husband he just kills it. I can do neither. HELP!!!!!
