What do you think are the World’s Deadliest Insects?

 

I ran across this story from back in February 2014 “8 Deadliest Insects in the World.” My guess was correct as I frequently mention it in many of my bug presentations. So what do you think are the top eight? Go ahead and take a good guess.

I asked this question just this last week at the Nature Camp, can you name the bugs that bite or sting here in Arizona?

  • Honeybees
  • Wasps
  • Scorpions
  • Mosquitoes
  • Ticks
  • Assassin Bugs
  • Bed Bugs
  • Some flies

Bug eating craze – what would you eat?

 

Top 5 insects you should be eating“. Maybe this would be a way to keep those pests numbers down, OK I wouldn’t be eating anything I found out in the wild unless I had to.

Not only are insects cheap, they are filled with proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals.

Where did we get our big brains from?

 

There is new research that may indicate it was from hunting insects – “Insect diet may have resulted in humans big brains.”

The study provides support for an evolutionary theory that links the development of sensorimotor (SMI) skills, such as increased manual dexterity, tool use, and innovative problem solving, to the creative challenges of foraging for insects and other foods that are buried, embedded or otherwise hard to procure.

We grow some big lizards out here in Arizona.

One of the highlights of my day is spotting a lizard and hoping that they won’t have an upset stomach from eating any bugs I may hit with a little pesticide. They help me by keeping pests infestations down by making dinner of crickets and the like. We have some pretty big ones, not in comparison to Komoto Dragons of course but hey big is big – depending on who is saying what. I know some people don’t like lizards but I think they are helpful in keeping down insects that might make it into your homes. So please don’t harm them, they are trying to help.

Just couldn’t do it, no tree trimming for me…

Sorry this is just a job I couldn’t even think about doing. Would scare me to death, I’m better on the ground. I’m not even thrilled to be on a  one-story roof. So if you need my expertise (pests, pest control  and their damage) it had better be on the ground level. Just saying!
