==Killing Insects on Shabbat==
# It is forbidden to kill insects intentionally on [[Shabbat]] , even if they rest on ones skin and may bite (as long as there is no real danger). One may gently remove such insects, but may not place them in a sink or water fountain where they may drown. <ref> Menuchat Ahavah 3:18:3. </ref> Although [[trapping]] insects is normally forbidden, stinging insects that can inflict substantial pain may be trapped by covering them with an empty cup. Also, if a mosquito is near a small child who may suffer a reaction from a bite it would be permitted. <ref> The 39 Melachot pg.872 </ref>
