How to deal with bugs?

Today i killed a lizard in my room. Previously, i killed a lot of insects crawling in the kitchen. I also killed a coakroach in the bathroom. I had to smack it several times before it finally passed on. This act of killing feels unpleasant to me but what choice do i have. if i let them be, they will continue to increase in number and bother me even more.

The problem is that every time i kill something, i feel a little unpleasant and i also have negative thoughts in my mind. Is there a way to kill bugs without having negative thoughts and without feeling unpleasant?

On a deeper note, why does life gives me this challenge of killing bugs from time to time? What does life want me to learn through this task? Does life want me to become good at killing little things?

kindly share your thoughts on how you deal with bugs, lizards or insects if they appear in your room?

I would leave the lizards alone. They'll help you with your bug problem. I don't mind insects outside my home. I'll tolerate a house spider inside even. Cockroaches are another thing entirely. I will not coexist with them. I will not allow them in my house. I've had an ongoing battle with hornets trying to live in my attic. I've had to call a bee guy 3 times already. They gain access in the same place every time. Through a gap in the flashing near the furnace chimney in the back of the house. I have to remember to have the gutter guys to come seal all the flashing, etc. every 5 years. I just had them come out this spring so I'm good for another 5 years.

I've got camel crickets under the house crawl space and I've toyed with the idea about putting some native lizards down there. I've seen blue skanks hanging out around the foundation there but we don't have any larger native lizards and I'm not going to introduce any raised in captivity, because I don't want have to take care of them. I'll probably just end up blowing some diatomaceous earth down there to take care of them. I don't want to use poison.

Insects in my room, are typically gonners. I don't like bugs in my room.

I agree, let the lizards eat the bugs! Oooorrrrr get a cat. A cat will solve both the problems. A cat will enjoy killing both.

I repel them with 'plug in 'things...so they are reduced.
Before the cold comes I spray the baseboards with a 'Home Defense" spray , good for a year it says, and leave the house with windows open* ...also spraying the perimeter of the house outside..esp, around doors.
I have a perfect jar with a thick paper that comes inside packaging...
slip the paper underneath the jar...take the thing far away outside.

When I do kill something I tell them, "This place wasn't all it was cracked up to be anyway ---you're going to a better place."

*You can try peppermint, cedar sprays to repel things. Make your own.
Put Boric Acid powder all along baseboards...fill in any holes/cracks you might find. (And outside at the base of your home each year.)

If they are biting or stinging you ...make an oil or cream with lemongrass, basil, and geranium...mosquitoes will fly all around
you and never touch you.
Other bugs wont touch you...and it is a pleasant smell.
Try just lemongrass oil or citronella if that sounded too complicated.

I just kill certain bugs when they invade then use peppermint spray to keep them away. Mighty mint is a peppermint spray that naturally repels bugs and can be ordered thru Amazon. White vinegar and cinnamon naturally repel ants and maybe other bugs too. I believe cinnamon is also toxic to ants.
