Fun, Free, Insect Facts for Kids

The number of insect species is believed to be between six and ten million. Insect bodies have three parts, the thorax, abdomen and head. Insects have two antennae. Insects have three pairs of legs. Some insects, such as (water striders), are able to walk on the surface of water.

Do Insects have lungs?

Instead of lungs, insects breathe with a network of tiny tubes called tracheae. Air enters the tubes through a row of holes along an insect’s abdomen. The air then diffuses down the blind-ended tracheae. Since the biggest bugs have the longest tracheae, they should need the most oxygen to be able to breathe.

How many different kinds of bugs are there?

In the world, some 900 thousand different kinds of living insects are known. This representation approximates 80 percent of the world’s species. The true figure of living species of insects can only be estimated from present and past studies.

HOW DO INSECTS DEFEND THEMSELVES?

Many insects are camouflaged (naturally disguised), so that predators do not see them. Some species are armed with stingers or foul-tasting poison. Many of these have bright colors, such as black-and-yellow stripes, to warn enemies away.
What is the longest living insect?
The Longest-lived Insect: The queen of termites, known to live for 50 years. Some scientists believe that they live for 100 years. The Oldest Fossil Butterfly or Moth: A Lepidoptera fossil found in England is estimated to be 190 million years old.
                                                                   
Do insects have teeth?
Insect mouthparts are derived from the appendages of four of the segments forming the insect head. They surround the mouth and are external to it, unlike the condition in vertebrates in which the teeth are within the oral cavity.
