Bugs- Top or Bottom of Food Chain?

Sure everything seems to eat bugs, after all they are the smallest and don't the bigger and stronger animals consume the smaller and weaker, or do they?

There is a theory out that the extinction of the dinosaur was actually caused by small bugs carrying deadly diseases. The smallest of bacteria can cause devastating results.
Ticks and mosquitoes carry Yellow fever, West Nile and Malaria.

Have you watched the modern version of the movie "War of the Worlds"? The murderous space aliens were brought down by microscopic bacteria.

Watch out for those bugs.

And the dumbest of things is...I hate to kill anything, including a bug. Where does that put the bug in my existance, bottom or top?
