Did you know that there are 34 bible verses about “Killing Insects.”
If every single thing as the bible speaks about in the beginning God created: as all the beast of the earth, every bird of the heavens, everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, and every green plant be food for man, then why does man think he can kill or believe that they would be bad for us and would need to be gotten rid of?
Who does man think he is to think that weeds are unwanted weeds and bad for our yards?
When God clearly states that every green plant is food for man.
Why doesn’t man believe?
Do you know what DDT is?
“More than half a century after scientist Rachel Carson warned of the dangers of overusing the pesticide DDT, conservative groups continue to vilify her and blame her for a resurgence of malaria. But DDT is still used in many countries where malaria now rages.
If you try and get rid of mosquitoes, etc. don’t you know you attack other lives, both human and nature life with your sprays?
Who is man to determine that if we don’t get rid of all of the insects we won’t have any food?
Well, do we really have any when it poisoned by pesticides?
Why did and does man believe that anything God created would be a weed or something bad to human life which man takes upon himself to make a poisonous chemical which not only kills insects but also harms human lives for life causing disease, illness or even death?
It clearly speaks about every green plant being food for man in the scripture and see parable below.
It is proof in the scripture everything that He made is very good and to be used as food. The bible goes on further to describe what portion of insects are edible like some countries do use them as sustenance, i.e. Thailand. Many Thais love snacking on grasshoppers, crickets and woodworms. The bugs are seasoned and fried in a wok until crispy, then served to passers-by at local food markets. Ant eggs, like the ones shown here, are also popular. Countries That Eat Bugs – Slideshow | U.S. News Travel
These two scriptures can be found in What does the bible say about killing insects? OpenBible.info
“All winged insects that go on all fours are detestable to you. Yet among the winged insects that go on all fours you may eat those that have jointed legs above their feet, with which to hop on the ground. Of them you may eat: the locust of any kind, the bald locust of any kind, the cricket of any kind, and the grasshopper of any kind. But all other winged insects that have four feet are detestable to you.
Genesis 1:29-31 ESV
And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food. And to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the heavens and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food.” And it was so. And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.
Don’t you think there is a need to be some kind of checks and balances of human nature how we use anything which can backfire and hurt human and nature life?
Spiritual and check and balances are the great blessing of being human is to observe and study the world. The only way out of this world is studying the natural world and understanding the planet and then we have a better understanding of who we are. You always have a sense of hope when you know more about the natural earth and this is an amazing planet which we are to manage and is something which requires lifetime study and you would be shocked to find an understanding, i.e. Highway 44 use to be completely under water through learning rock formation earth science.

“One should notice that the chemical of DDT is very similar to Diethylstilbestrol (DES), the synthetic estrogen which was contraindicated by the FDA (1971) because it caused cervical cancer – adenocarcinoma of the vagina – in the daughters of women given DES during pregnancy.”
