no, it doesn't...

I mean, seriously. Who are we to proclaim that another species doesn't benefit us? We don't know that. We can't. We're not omniscient.

And even if that other species really, truly doesn't benefit us... surely it benefits something.

OK, I heard something once about exterminating tsetse flies (the ones that carry sleeping sickness in Africa) — I think I spelled that right — because all they seem to do is carry disease. I doubt anyone would miss those for quite some time. But maybe eventually... who knows?
