Earwigs are usually refused by fish, but if eaten, they could halt growth or 
kill the fish. True bugs can inject a toxin and digestive fluid that 
dissolves the fish internally. Stinging insects like bees are pollinators and 
should be released. Others like the assassin bugs are predators on harmful 
insects that destroy vegetation, so they should be released unharmed too.
