Cover it with burp cloth.
Push in the edges until it is one big ball.
Throw it down the steps of your apartment building.
When your husband comes home, send him downstairs to retrieve the burp cloth.
Wash the burp cloth.March 19, 2015 11:40 pm at 11:40 pm #1066090☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
Who’s more upset at you, your husband, or the neighbors? (Or the moth?)March 20, 2015 9:17 pm at 9:17 pm #1066091Jewish ThinkerParticipant
Is this considered tzar baalie chaim? Or since it is bothering you, it isn’t?March 22, 2015 12:50 am at 12:50 am #1066092lesschumrasParticipant

A can of deodorant. A lighter. Worked for me. Admittedly, it did take about ten minutes, and afterwards the room stank of Lynx. And there was a high risk factor. But, on the plus side, a singed moth.March 22, 2015 1:26 am at 1:26 am #1066094Jewish ThinkerParticipant
Mods, I liked lesschumras other subtitle better, morekulas.March 22, 2015 1:29 am at 1:29 am #1066095screwdriverdelightParticipant
I once successfully killed a moth by turning off the light. It had been buzzing around the bulb, and now, since it couldn’t see, it flew touched the bulb and got burnt. I’ve done repeat experiments, though, and didn’t have repeat results.March 22, 2015 4:08 am at 4:08 am #1066096👑RebYidd23Participant
Why kill a moth?March 24, 2015 3:17 am at 3:17 am #1066097☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
While Torah was cooking her broth,
she shrieked upon seeing a moth!
It was quite a quandary,
until she though of laundry,
so she smothered it with a burp cloth.March 24, 2015 3:33 am at 3:33 am #1066098Torah613TorahParticipant
DY, excellent poem, and I think the moth was most upset.
Jewish thinker, it was definitely causing me tzaar.
Rebbyid, my husband said there was no moth inside when he picked up the burp cloth, so it probably wasn’t too badly hurt. Which makes sense because I didn’t crush it, I only wrapped it into a ball.March 24, 2015 3:48 am at 3:48 am #1066099☕️coffee addictParticipant
as ive stated before the halacha is there’s no tzaar baalei chaim by bugs
the scientific reason being is that they cannot experience pain (no exoskeleton)March 24, 2015 12:40 pm at 12:40 pm #1066100popa_bar_abbaParticipant
Also, they aren’t sentient.
