    You come to live on this earth after them then you should respect them and learn how to live with them in harmony.

    Praise be to GOD, the Lord of the worlds ,who keep this world and universe in balance among all HIS creations.

    SO GOD knows best the benefits of those dust mites and insects for mankind and for other animals kingdom.

    The problem with this question is that you are attaching a presupposition that God did, in fact, create these creatures. There are far greater evils in the world than dust mites. If you believe in God, you would also have to ask yourself why God created cancer, disease, and all other malignant forces in the world. As a logical person, you would start to realize that the answer which makes most sense is that God did not create these things, because they contradict the notion that God is an all-loving deity. God, being omnipotent and omnipresent, could "smite" people with laser precision any time it is warranted, without risking the implications of disease which spread to other people, but this is not the case in reality. Either God is not all-powerful, or he is not all-loving. You cannot have it both ways. Firm believers will try to apply reasoning to these situations that allow God to act in such a way that it coexists with nature as it is, but the only thing such reasoning does is put a human-defined limit on God's power or love which effectively takes away his status as written in the Bible.

    All animals have a place on this planet. They weren't always harmful to us.

    Dust mites are only considered harmful because people are allergic to them. But allergies are caused by our modern hygienic practices resulting in our children being exposed to far fewer pathogens at an early age. This causes the body's immune system to fail to develop properly, and can lead to it identifying otherwise harmless substances as pathogens. That's an allergy.

    Dust mites and other insects serve amazing purposes, if one gets in the wrong place and is making it unsanitary, God doesn't say anything about smushing them though ;) Oh yeah and they're full of protein.

    Mankind causes his own suffering.. Imagine what the world would be like if the jew never rejected not only their God, but their own messiah.

    Look at the jew now..hated by the majority just as God said would happen if they turned their back on Him..they caused their own suffering to this very day. To call the jews a nation is a joke.

    Believe it or not, we are not the centre of the universe. We have no more extrinsic value than said insects.
