The most dangerous creature on Earth

Filed under: Essays — unwriter1 @ 3:27 pm

This has been bothering me all day.  I stepped outside and saw an ant carrying some food. I tried to look at the world from his point of view. Bugs, insects, rabbits and other creatures live outdoors. Humans live inside. But when we of the human race step into their world, we destroy them. Why? They are creepy, or they will come into the house or I”m afraid of insects. There are a thousand reasons and I have yet to hear a good one. These are God’s creations. What right do we have to kill them? Ok, we may not like them but we don’t have to. Even money says they don’t like us either.

All the outdoor creatures do is survive. They eat, sleep and procreate. That is their life. Interfering with humans is not part of their program. Ants and other small creatures seek food and we as humans have a lot of it. But their normal palate consists of grasses. They are attracted to sugar, but it will harm them more than help. They do not get the nutrients they need. But, like kids, it ‘tastes good’.

What”s the solution? Do we offer them sugar? No, that is a slow death. We leave them alone. We will not be overrun by them because they grow to the extent of the resources. When they get in the house, take them back out. We do NOT have the right to kill them. They live outdoors, we live in, it is that simple.

  1. Good post and thoughts. Ever since oh – late teens, early twenties, I’ve had the habit of capturing insects that find their way into the house, alive, and take them outside. The only insect I will intentionally kill is the mosquito that is still attempting to suck my blood after several attempts to shoo it away.
