    You don't want to kill bugs because of religious reasons... so you choose to grow bug-eating plants? Makes sense to me!

    Maybe hanging up flypaper is OK since you wouldn't be directly killing anything. Or a bug zapper. You wouldn't be killing anything unless you physically placed them in the traps. If you had a bug zapper, you could even use the dead bug bodies for your plants. Or spray something insects are repelled by. Citronella oil or something.

    polywer,
    there are approximately 243,523 bugs living in your terrarium..
    243,419 of which you cant see with the naked eye.

    dont worry about it.

    its natural..they arent harming anything, and there is no way you can get rid of them all.

    actually..... do a search for "entomology aspirator" or "insect aspirator". basically it's a jar with two straws coming out the top. one, you stick in your mouth and suck. (usually there's mesh or a filter at the bottom so you don't suck up the bugs or other nasty things. that scene in Coneheads where Prymaat is vacuuming...that's what you're trying to avoid.) the other straw use to suck bugs into the jar. then you can take them outside and release.

    you can buy them from a commercial biological supply company or make your own.

    but again...more bugs will surely come and take their place. it might help temporarily reduce a large population, but you'll have to keep doing it every once in a while.

    I find the defendant... guilty

    What kind of plants do you have? Get something like a butterwort or drosera, something they'll stick too... and if that doesn't work... fly trap... of the stickius yellowus tapius species

    Good luck...
