A wagging tail beats good looks every time | Pat Cashman

Among the sights I have yet to see is that of a protester marching in front of the corporate headquarters of Raid, carrying a placard that says, “End the killing of spiders, fleas, houseflies, chiggers, mealworms and cockroaches!” As far as I know, there is no PETA-like group that speaks out in defense of stinkbugs, snout beetles and termites.
