    Now. If only they don’t come back. :)

    Things going into the vacuum first encounter the fan blades. Not many bugs are likely to survive that.

    Not my vacuums. The suction fan is behind the filter bag.

    We have a Rainbow vac. Everything goes into a tank of water.

    Actually, that’s not “above and beyond.” You don’t want to leave the bugs in the vacuum cleaner to escape back into the house.

    “None of them needed to be bold.”
    IMHO, I think that all the bolds added to the dialogue.

    Looks as though the bugs are going to be collectibles again very soon.

    Come back? Alix is racing to find them again.

    That’s a negatory, Big Bear. The fan is usually (at least in all the Hoovers I’ve had) after the bag and separated from it by a filter. That pulls things into the bag rather than pushes. Pushing can also push lots of dust around the bag opening and into the vacuum compartment instead of the bag.

    Most bugs wish to live out of doors. Only a few like flies and spiders will live here to feed and be fed upon. Large tree roaches come in just to get water, warm and food. But will otherwise leave.

    alix must hold some seriously somber affairs for bug funerals

    Some vacuum cleaners do have the fan in front of the bag. It tends to get damaged by metal things like paper clips (the fan is usually plastic) and if you vacuum up a piece of string it gets wrapped around the fan….
