==Killing Insects on Shabbat==
# It is forbidden to kill insects intentionally on [[Shabbat]], even if they rest on ones one's 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>
