play god
dance with the devil

and fly away home

we have a lot to learn about how to manage and control nature

getting the bugs out - well, let's suffice to say
the bugs are a lot smarter than human's give credit

AND they want to survive, TOO!

This is sick and very worrying how do they know the offspring will die off and anyway there is a reason they exist a small number is normal.
