Do believers in God, feel all God's creations go to heaven? If so, does that include insects? If not, where do they go?

In my personal opinion, nobody goes directly to heaven. Nobody has been that, good of a person throughout their whole life. Everybody I think, goes to purgatory. That is a plac where you repent and do penance for all your sins. Once that is completed, then you go to heaven. The big difference is some people will be in purgatory for longer or shorter periods of time than other people.

Animals and other creatures are different streams from humans, just as angels are. It is not as simple as just going off to Heaven if we have been "good" or Hell if we have been "bad" - nobody is all good or all bad.
Animals have group souls, apparently - perhaps some creatures work their way "upwards" even.

Most Christians pretend that only human beings (them) go to heaven. The Revelation shows various orders of animals in heaven: Herbivores, carnivores, birds, and primates. Every living being is a living soul. All shall be resurrected. I suppose the various types of animal life will be by themselves somewhere.

Creatures other than humans have mortal souls; souls that expire at the same time the body expires. Human souls are immortal.

Thats not biblical, no.
But wise Solomon stated.....
Ecclesiastes 3:21 — For who can prove that the human spirit goes up and the spirit of animals goes down into the earth?
The spirit of scripture is that non-human beasts cannot know or relate to God, and that sin and salvation are irrelevant to them.

People are not animals. Individual animals cease to exist. People live forever either with the Lord, or in eternal torment. Here is the truth: The Lord Jesus Christ is God. Nobody can be good enough to avoid hell. The truth is that death leads to immediate heaven or hell, depending only on whether the person believed on the Lord Jesus Christ, or not. The truth is that the Lord Jesus Christ loves you and wants to bless your life freely :) Most of all, Jesus wants you with Him forever, and not in hell.
Believing on the Lord Jesus Christ means being forgiven all sins past and future and means going to heaven. The truth is that every belief except one will lead to eternal torment in the lake of fire for every person. Because nothing pays for our sins except the death and blood of Jesus, the sacrifice of Jesus that is already accomplished by Him . Jesus loves you! The truth is that the Lord Jesus Christ is God, and Jesus died on the cross to pay for all of our sins in full, and then Jesus was buried, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead. Nothing else pays for our sins, not works, not deeds, not religions. So the only way to heaven and to avoid hell, is by believing on Jesus for eternal life (John 6:47), without adding any of your own works (Romans 4:5). Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ to take you to heaven, and you will be in heaven, no matter what, guaranteed. That easy, thanks to Jesus! Tell Jesus that you thank Him that you will be with Him in heaven
