Our argument that Satan is probably the author of some of the pests that mar man's present habitation is based upon a thought suggested by Pastor Russell in THE WATCH TOWER for July 15, 1897...
Woodworth then quoted the following from the article by Russell:
We have every reason to believe that the fallen spirits have learned considerable during the past four thousand years and that they have much wider range of power today. We are inclined to believe that the grasshopper plagues and the multitudinous farmer-pests and the spores and animal life in recent times, may be manifestations of the same power for evil.
Hebrew: "nemalah," from a word meaning to creep, cut off, destroy.
24 There be four things which are little upon the earth, but they are exceeding wise:
25 The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer;
27 The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands;
28 The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings' palaces.
12 They compassed me about like bees: they are quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.
Hebrew: 'arob, the name given to the insects sent as a plague on the land of Egypt (Ex. 8:21-31; Ps. 78:45; 105:31)
Hebrew: zebub, (Eccl. 10:1; Isa. 7:18)
This fly was so grievous a pest that the Phoenicians invoked against it the aid of their god Baal-zebub (q.v.). The prophet Isaiah (7:18) alludes to some poisonous fly which was believed to be found on the confines of Egypt
the creatures employed in the third plague sent upon Egypt (Ex. 8:16-18)
They were miraculously produced from the dust of the land. "The entomologists Kirby and Spence place these minute but disgusting insects in the very front rank of those which inflict injury upon man. A terrible list of examples they have collected of the ravages of this and closely allied parasitic pests." The plague of lice is referred to in Ps. 105:31.
There are ten Hebrew words used in Scripture to signify locust. In the New Testament locusts are mentioned as forming part of the food of John the Baptist (Matt. 3:4; Mark 1:6). By the Mosaic law they were reckoned "clean," so that he could lawfully eat them. The name also occurs in Rev. 9:3, 7, in allusion to this Oriental devastating insect.
their flight obscures the sun and casts a thick shadow on the earth (Ex. 10:15; Judg. 6:5; 7:12; Jer. 46:23; Joel 2:10). It seems indeed as if a great aerial mountain, many miles in breadth, were advancing with a slow, unresting progress. Woe to the countries beneath them if the wind fall and let them alight! They descend unnumbered as flakes of snow and hide the ground. It may be 'like the garden of Eden before them, but behind them is a desolate wilderness. At their approach the people are in anguish; all faces lose their color' (Joel 2:6). No walls can stop them; no ditches arrest them; fires kindled in their path are forthwith extinguished by the myriads of their dead, and the countless armies march on (Joel 2:8, 9). If a door or a window be open, they enter and destroy everything of wood in the house. Every terrace, court, and inner chamber is filled with them in a moment. Such an awful visitation swept over Egypt (Ex. 10:1-19), consuming before it every green thing, and stripping the trees, till the land was bared of all signs of vegetation. A strong northwest wind from the Mediterranean swept the locusts into the Red Sea.", Geikie's Hours, etc., ii., 149.
“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.
How many plagues mentioned in the book of Exodus in the Bible were cause by insects? Three: lice, flies, and locusts
Insects. Entire Bible.
Several lines of investigation have suggested an interplay between bioluminescence (BL) and oxyradical metabolism, mainly in bacteria and beetles. Although not yet confirmed, luminescent beetles seem to be challenged daily by oxidative conditions imposed by higher oxygen absorption necessary to enhance light emission for courtship (adult lampyrids and elaterids) and prey attraction (e.g. Pyrearinus termitilluminans larvae). This work reports the activities of luciferase, superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase and dehydroascorbate reductase (DHAR) and total glutathione content at different times of the day in the bright prothorax and dim abdomen of larval Pyrearinus termitilluminans (Coleoptera: Elateridae), investigating a possible adjuvant role for luciferase in oxygen detoxification. Luciferase activity in the prothorax was shown to peak at 7 p.m., which is the time when P. termitilluminans larvae light up for prey attraction
cockroaches also have a very unpleasant characteristic odor. The odor is so prevalent that a pest control operator can often smell an infestation

All this exactly why I mentioned in another thread, that we must create a bold plan of acquiring advanced technology to be used for evacuate a portion of the human race, but as much as possible, everyone to a temporary/permanent habitable planet/planetoid beyond the solar system.
Then using the same technology to obliterate Earth's crust by artificially induced earthquakes or to cause large comet/s or asteroid/s to crash to Earth, annihilating all forms of life in it on the surface and underneath, effectively destroying its atmosphere, oceans systems as well or just anything to support life.
We want to save the human race and to put a stop to this parasitic menace.

Such dietary flexibility allows Argentine ants to adapt readily to changing conditions. Other traits allow them to build enormously large, collaborative colonies. In California, scientists say Argentine ants have established at least five “supercolonies” – millions of smaller nests linked to one another. The largest of these supercolonies stretches 600 miles, along the coast from Mexico into Northern California.
Researchers have documented the largest ant supercolony yet, a network of Argentine ant nests stretching at least 6,000 kilometers across Europe.
It's "the largest cooperative unit ever recorded," says Laurent Keller of the University of Lausanne in Switzerland. He and his colleagues describe the supercolony and a smaller, separate supercolony of the ants in Spain in an upcoming Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Most abduction victims report odd scratches, or pock marks or tiny holes of some sort, as if, something had broken their skin during the night or previously or during the experience
Marks too small or odd to be explained by instrumentation, the randomness of location, no "spot" in particular as if
Something had crawled up on them and chewed or bit away at them
scratches are very common too, small ones like something walking in a line slicing
