Do you think bugs like flies and spiders feel pain when we kill them?

I smushed a spider today, and my son asked me if it hurt on the spider! What do you think? Does it hurt on the fly we swat or the spider we squish?

When you kill a bug, do you think it feels pain?

    It's a living creature so I would think it would feel pain.

    Have you ever ripped the leg off a bug? Or a wing, it panics, so I would assume that it feels pain.

    Yeah, but it can still feel it.

    Insects lack the nervous system needed to feel pain in the sense we feel pain. That being said, I'm sure they feel something.
