Insects are sentient. They are conscious of their environment and experience pain and pleasure. They also engage in some degree of abstract thought, planning and can remember details of their environments. This is known to anyone who observes nature closely. E.g. parasitic wasps will temporarily set a caterpillar it is dragging back to its burrow down and scout alternative routes ahead to find the easiest, then return to pick the caterpillar up and drag it along the chosen route. This demonstrates memory, abstract thought and planning, all aspects of intelligence.

All living organisms have intelligence necessary to survive within their particular environments. Otherwise they would have become extinct.

They are so dumb. Everyone knows insects are not sentient beings.
