Is it wise to kill an insect just because it is wandering around your apartment or just because it is bothering you?
I've seen people killing small insects just because it is wandering/jumping/hiding in apartments. I always wonder why people kill an insect if it is not harmful. They can just carefully take them away or show them some other path.
People kill insects for two reasons 1) they might bite them or 2) they might spread disease.
But an insect isn't aware of that. It doesn't know whether its presence will create the disease in the human race.
I googled "dangerous insects" and at the top I got web page titling "25 Most Dangerous Bugs In The World". Below is an excerpt from the article.
Termites: While they are not dangerous in the typical sense of the word as they play a critical role in the environment and even in some culture’s diets, they have the potential to cause major damage to crops and infrastructure.
Fine, they have the potential to damage our crops and infrastructure, but is it their fault? They are just trying to survive. Is it wise to kill an insect in such situations?
