comment Killing insects on Yom Tov
First of all not everybody agrees that there is a problem of "trapping" a dead animal, see Chut shuni 1 page 122, also according to the Magan Avraham 501,13 whenever you do a malacha that is allowed on yom tov, if another malacha that is not allowed on yom tov happens at the same time, its muttur (he allows you to throw a chair into a fire as fire wood even though you are being soser a chair), here too, even if killing a bug is considered "trapping", since killing a bug is allowed (assuming it is allowed) bec of mitoach, there no concern of the trapping that comes with it

yes it is about a dead human body, the case is you want to carry it out of the house, carrying on yom tov is allowed because of mitoch, yet it is not allowed because there is no positive result to your action, we see that we only say mitoch for a positive need, so too killing bugs that are not a positive action (you dont want the dead bug, just the bug not to be near you, like the dead body not being in your house) we dont say mitoch therefore it should not be allowed on yom tov
