Fun Facts About Bugs for Smart Kids
Hi clever kids! I’ll talk about bugs today. Here are some fantastic facts about them!
- Did you know that a ladybird can take in over 5000 insects as food throughout its life? Amazing!
- Scientists say fruit flies beat other insects to space. They were the first living creatures that astronauts sent into space. I’m jealous. I’ve never been to space. What about you?
- Dragonflies have many eyes, two pairs of strong wings, and a long body. That’s great. I wish I had many eyes to see things from all directions. Would you want them, too?
- The beat of the bee’s wings is 190 times per second or 11 400 times per minute. That’s something. My heart rate could be about 100 beats per second. I don’t come close to the bee’s wings.
- The UK has the biggest species of stag beetle.
- And what about caterpillars? They’ve got 12 eyes.
- I’ve watched Superman movies. They’re great. But the dung battle is as strong as Superman. It can pull an object that is 1,141 times its mass. That’s awesome!
- Did you also know that houseflies use their feet to find sugar? Their feet are more sensitive than human tongues by 10 million times.
- Ticks can grow pretty big, from a tiny insect to a marble-sized insect.
- About 2,000 silkworm cocoons can make one pound of silk. That’s a lot. But I don’t think these insects can get tired of making their silk.
- A bee can fly up to 60 miles a day while collecting food.
- I’m starting to respect ants. Ants are pretty tiny. But they are so strong that they can carry things weighing over fifty times their weight. But I’ll never try this because I’m slender.
- Have you eaten Mexican Jumping Beans before? If not, next time, check them inside for a caterpillar of a bean moth.
- One ounce may equal roughly one hundred Monarch Butterflies.
- Dung battles once helped some farmers in Australia with removing huge cattle droppings.
- If you think only humans can get drunk, wait a second. Wasps can get plastered by eating fermented juice. Yes, that’s right. Don’t try it at home.
- A queen belonging to a particular species of termites can produce 40,000 eggs in one day. Incredible!
- Honeybees need ten million trips to gather nectar to generate one pound of honey.
- Unlike other flies, blowflies are the first to land on a dead animal.
- Do you know where the word honeymoon comes from? Years ago in the Middle Ages, newlyweds received a gift-honey and wine. It was so full that the honey and wine lasted for one month during their marriage. I wish my wedding gift lasted many months, too.
- When it’s cold, lots of insects keep themselves warm by changing their body water to glycerol. It’s a chemical that shields them from the cold.
- You can find about 8000 species of ants. There are 1000 fewer than 9000 species of birds in the world.
- The male silk moth’s sense of smell is so powerful that it can smell female silk moths’ chemicals in the air.
- Arachnids are mites, ticks, spiders, and harvestmen.
