    How do you feel towards bugs/insects? Do you apply the same humane guidelines that you do others animals to bugs/insects? Personally, I like to save them and toss them outside. I don’t feel especially guilty if I kill one. It just seems strange to me to be kind to the larger creatures, but not to the little ones. I’m not sure if insects do feel pain or not (certain sources say one thing, certain say the other, although most say they don’t), but it also just feels like it is benefiting the local ecosystem to have the bugs released back into the wild.

    Ive always believed bugs feel pain! juat the other day i saved a small bee whom broke half its wings. I just cant stand the thought of killing a bug because “It grosses you out| or “annoys you”. If a human grosses you out or annoys you you dont kill it, so why would you kill somthing because its smaller then a human!!

    Even if it’s an accident, I feel guilty about killing them. Even if they don’t feel pain (even though I believe every living creature can), I’d rather not take the risk and just let them be.

    I bought a humane bug catcher from the PETA catalog and wont let my mom kill even a fly. I let them all outside. I use to not feel guilty but now it has grown to where if I Accidently kill a bug the guilt kicks in. Why take away a life for no reason?

    Insects are brilliant creatures, so fascinating and beautiful.
    I do my best not to kill any of them but I do feel guilty if I find out I’ve accidentally killed one.
