Awe yes, the common Вопрос over the value of every living thing. Having Ты ever heard of Jainism perhaps?
I would definitely say that torturing или killing needlessly isn’t right (though insects do not process pain или emotions), but if a комар, москит, комаров или such is sucking your blood, slapping it seems to be a reasonable decision. And sure, that may seem as if Ты are using your superiority as a higher-held animal to decide a smallest fate, but really when it comes down to it, everything’s designed for its own survival. Ты could see it as a “you harm it, или let it harm you” sort of thing.
Death of anything, animal, human, even insect, is just “the круг of life” Ты know?
Even Животные are capable of doing some very horrible things when it comes to their own defense или Еда but we treat them as vulnerable innocent beings that's because they are not conscious of their acts. Humans on the other are conscious of 'good' and 'evil' so they have sort of 'moral responsibility' of things. Funnily enough this concept of morals was created by humans themselves (inspired by religion) in nature there are no morals, it's survival of the fittest. So it largely depends on an individual human's values because if Ты look at it rational then they are important for the environmental purpose and that effects our own survival and doesn't serve any moral purpose. Despite this humans are good for the sake of being good and we're actually the kindest species (sort of)
