For instance, an insect has a compound eye, antenna, 2-3 simple eyes and a 3-part thorax. There are approximately 11 abdominal segments and a characteristic respiratory system. Worldwide, there are approximately 700,000 species of insects. In North America alone, there are 90,000 species. Insects live everywhere on earth. Plant life needs insects. Man needs insects for honey,
silk and shellac. Hairy-winged beetles are among the smallest insects. An insect can pull up to twenty times its weight.
A locust can fly up to 9 hours continuously. African beetles are
the largest insects in the world. Insects have multiple
types of antennae. i.e. Plumose, lamellate, setaceous, clavate,
pectinate, filliform and aristate. An insect can fly up to
15 MPH. The wings of a mosquito can vibrate up to 1000 times
