        1. Most of European insects have been discovered and baptized in the 19th century.
          Since then, to me, there is no reason anymore for killing insects just to satisfy personal curiosity (except may be for scientists).
          I cannot see where is the benefit/interest to collect insects like pins, beer capsules or stamps.
