This website has been created to give you fun facts and plenty of information about different insects and other little critters including pests. Insects and critters pass through three stages during their growth. The three stages are larva, pupa, and the adult (imago). In some cases the larva is very similar to the adult with a small change being the lack of wings. Different types of larva may include a grub, maggot or a caterpillar that are all very different to the adult. A pupa is very different from both the larva and the adult in that they are inactive and take on no food. Insects are a class of creatures within the arthropods who have a very tough exoskeleton. Anthropods have three body parts consisting of a head, thorax and abdomen. They also have three pairs of jointed legs, one pair of antenna and compound eyes. nsects are among the largest and most diverse groups of animals on our planet and consists of more than 1 million described species and make up more than half of all the known living organisms on the planet. Of the existing species it is believed that between six and 10 million exist that make up a potential of 90% of individual life on Earth. All different types of insects may be found in almost all environments all around the world, a small number of insects live in the ocean while the oceans are dominated by different anthropoid group called crustaceans. Many insects and bugs are harmful to residential and commercial properties leaving people with much need for pest control services or for larger animals. The sooner the problem is solved gives you a higher chance that minimal damage will be caused by the harmful insects such as termites.
