DID YOU KNOW?
Insects are living creatures that have a three-part body and three pairs of jointed legs, compound eyes and two antennae?
They are among the most diverse groups of animals on the planet representing  more than half of all known living organisms found in nearly all environments (although a very small number of species may also be found in the oceans) The most diverse insect group appear to have co evolved with flowering plants. The life cycles of insects vary but most hatch from eggs.
Insects typically move about by walking, flying or occasionally swimming. As it allows for rapid yet stable movement, many insects adopt a tripedal gait in which they walk with their legs touching the ground in alternating triangles. Insects are the only invertebrates to have evolved flight. Some species, like water striders, are capable of walking on the surface of water. Insects are mostly solitary, but some insects, such as certain bees, ants, and termites are social and live in large, well-organized colonies. Some insects, like earwigs, show maternal care, guarding their eggs and young. Insects can communicate with each other in a variety of ways. Male moths can sense the pheromones of female moths over distances of many kilometers. Other species communicate with sounds: crickets stridulate, or rub their wings together, to attract a mate and repel other males, the beetle, for example communicate with light.
Humans regard certain insects as pests and attempt to control them using insecticides and a host of other techniques. This is because, some insects damage crops by feeding on sap, leaves or fruits, a few bite humans and livestock, alive and dead, to feed on blood and some are capable of transmitting diseases to humans, pets and livestock. Nevertheless, without insects to pollinate flowers, the human race would soon run out of food because many of the crop plants that we rely on would not be able to reproduce.[8] Many other insects are considered ecologically beneficial as predators and a few provide direct economic benefit. Silkworms and bees have been used extensively by humans for the production of silk and honey, respectively.
