It's because bugs use pheromones and other kinds of vision to see, so darkness doesn't really deter them. Plus many bugs are more active at night.

Dark is Evil, not lack of Light

That depends moreso on the Pokemon. I think there was a thread about this. Anyways, Umbreon is a night evolution of eevee, that doesn't make it evil.
Even then, Insects in movies kinda work on both sides of the spectrum.
(spiders and moths get a more "evil" vibe while butterflies and ladybugs tend to get a more "good" vibe.)
So if you look at it from that perspective it also explains why bug is supereffective against the Psychic (good) type as well.

Firstly, insects are the most numerous animal on the planet. Also keep in mind that a Bird type seems to have been planned to be in Gen 1 (see Missingno), so they apparently saw nothing wrong with types of animals being included among the Elements. The Bug type is in my top 3 Elements--I like them a lot.

It's called the Evil type in Japan, and more resembles dishonorable tactics than what you were talking about.

This makes sense.
Plus the Bug type actually is my favorite :D
It just always felt out of place tough.

Oh not TVTropes -_- *sigh there goes my next 3 hours*
Hmmm . . . So bugs wear down the sneaky tricks of Dark types with their insect traits (kinda like chasing a fly) and don't fall for their tricks because of their hiveminded brains?

"You can probably replace the sentence with any other type and it'll be similar reasoning. Instead, you should think why flying exists. Before tornadus, flying was always a sub-type."

Arceus...though, granted, that was a type replacement.
