When we think about the insects first come to mind summer Creepers – mosquitoes or “home bugs” against which we struggle with all possible means and instruments such as flytraps, towels, newspapers and slippers. However, there are some bugs that we love to take in hand, that we love to see, we even sang songs about them…and here is a list of top 5 bugs…
Butterfly, about these delightful and wonderful creatures we already wrote. Although farmers claim that the butterflies are pests, but we all love them, we admire to their beauty and give them fanciful names. They live on every continent except Antarctica, and many species are acutely endangered.
Since they are cold-blooded animals, they live in areas up to 2000 m above sea level, and sometimes more, on the warm mountain slopes. It is assumed to have evolved over a long period of 300 million years, and the oldest forms probably have appeared at the end of the Paleozoic, when there were already living conditions suitable for butterflies.
Dragonfly is mainly freshwater insect and lives near shallow lakes. Their bodies were long and tapered, sometimes the thickness of needle, and the colors and patterns vary from family to family. From a clear blue through red and green with brown freckles to yellow. Their legs are long and jagged, and eye complex, made up of more than 30,000 vacant eyes.
Thanks to this structure of the eye, vision is clear to them in rapid flight, which is very important because the Dragonfly is among the recorders throughout the animal world. Above the water is moving at a speed of 30 km / h. However, over shorter distances can develop a speed of over 90 kilometers per hour. Entomologists say the Dragonfly to reach speeds of as much as 135 kilometers per hour. It feeds mainly mosquitoes, but is able to catch a butterfly or a fly. There are also harmful species whose larvae in water devour the small fishes.
Stag Beetle is our largest insect beetle. It inhabits forests and play an important role in the initial stage of fermentation of wood decomposing. Most species of this family (and there are more than 900) has strongly developed upper pliers in both sexes.
Color is dark brown and the wings are maroon. Body length is about 3cm, male and female differ in that the male has a stronger upper jaw, large pliers (horns) that it used to fight with rivals. Body length can be larger than 7.5 cm. Pliers are on the inside serrated and resemble the horns of a deer. Exploitation of forests, destroy the old trees and is less opportunity for the survival of this beautiful insect. Stag Beetle is a strictly protected species in many countries and it is on list of endangered species in many international organizations.
Firefly The girls put them in the hair, and the boys are kept under glass to glow all night, but in the morning they released them to freedom. Firefly is a winged insect that has the ability to chemically produced cold light, green, yellow or pale red.
Substances that produce light are enzyme of the luciferase, and in the chemical reaction is involved magnesium ions, adenosine triphosphate and oxygen. The light produced in this way is the most efficient of all known, because almost all resultant energy is emitted as light. Fireflies with its “lanterns” attract partners or prey. In the world there are over 2,000 species of fireflies, and some of them have the ability to synchronize their blinking in the trees and prepare a little spectacle to observers.
Ladybug is peppered beetle who is believed to bring guests, happiness, letters or money. Are recognizable by the red color and black dots, though they can be orange, yellow, black, or reverse patterns, or without the characteristic dots.
Ladybug is very beneficial insect because it feeds on larvae, worms and some other harmful insects. Who would have thought that this lovely creature can go ahead and eat a meal 120 times greater than its own weight. Are widespread in almost all parts of the world and all people like them. They belong to a protected species, but until they were hardly anyone would dare to kill a ladybug for her sweet looks and due to the many beliefs.
