Not a lot of people know this:

  • There are four times as many insects as all other kinds of animals put together.
  • A dictionary-style listing of all known insects in the world would take up more than 6,000 pages.
  • Most insects live for less than one year. Some flies live only one day and they have no mouthparts.
  • If a twelve stone man had the comparable strength of an ant, he could lift 4 tons with his teeth. If the same man could jump like a flea, he could launch himself 700 feet into the air.
  • Every fifth living thing is a beetle.
  • Damage by insects to crops and damage control costs the United States $120 billion annually.
  • It’s technically possible for a pair of houseflies to produce 191,010,000,000,000,000,000 descendants in four months.
  • Scientists discover between 7,000 and 10,000 new kinds of insects each year. They estimate that nearly 10 million more, have yet to be discovered.
