Main Question or Discussion Point

Just now, i found a flying bug in my bedroom. The insect was greyish in colour, and when i tried to kill it, it will flap its wing and release some brown spore/powder. Anyone has any idea if the insect a dangerous one? and the brown thingy released too?

P.S. I killed it by wrapping tissue paper over it and squeeze.......

I'm afraid that I know nothing of insect life in other parts of the world. Here, I would say that it's a moth from your description. If so, the larvae are dangerous to your wardrobe, but they're otherwise harmless. Your best bet is to ask a local source who is more familiar with the area. Also, you could post a picture of it.

birds release on taking flight

I would only start to worry if you get the sudden urge to spin a silk like bundle to sleep in.

Perhaps if you drew a rough picture of it?
