  • [Insects fact 1] Wasps are extremely valuable in horticulture since they prey upon almost every pest insect and are used as a natural form of pest control.


  • [Insects fact 2] Beekeepers are advised not to eat bananas because the smell of bananas makes bees aggressive as it releases the same pheromones that alert bees to attack.


  • [Insects fact 3] 'Velvet Ants' are actually wingless wasps.


  • [Insects fact 4] Epomis beetles sneak up behind their victims (frogs) and hold on firmly using their legs. To paralyze the victim, the beetle makes an incision in the pelvic region with its mandibles, cutting nerves and perhaps leg muscles. The amphibian loses its ability to move and is eaten by the beetle.


  • [Insects fact 5] A San Francisco man named Tim Wong saved a threatened butterfly species (California pipevine swallowtail butterflies) by replanting rare flora in his backyard, transporting caterpillars to his local botanical garden, where they began to make a comeback.


  • [Insects fact 6] The larvae of the Epomis genus are notable for being obligate role reversal predators. Amphibians such as frogs are normal predators of beetles, however, Epomis larvae feed exclusively on frogs and other would-be predators. 


  • [Insects fact 7] Moths make up a large portion of Yellowstone bears' diets, and they can eat up to 20,000 calories worth of moths in a day.


  • [Insects fact 8] A giant American wasp called the tarantula wasp has a sting so painful, one peer-reviewed journal advises anyone who gets stung to "lie down and scream" to avoid further injury.


  • [Insects fact 9] Evolution made cicadas fatter, delicious and numerous. Predators eat cicadas till they're stuffed, and whatever left is enough to lay eggs for the next generation. The next generation emerges after 13 or 17 years because these prime integers rarely sync with other integers making it rare that they will breed in sync with predators, so predators won’t be able to adapt and prepare themselves for the next buffet. Therefore cicadas' entire survival strategy is to get eaten.


  • [Insects fact 10] Charcoal beetles fly into still-burning forest fires to mate and lay eggs because competition and predators will be low. They sense distant fires using infrared armpit sensors.
