Insects - A tour of Insects from around the World Its time for another podcast from naturesound but this time we are switching species. Most of my recordings are of birds, mainly because they are the most visual and vocal but one particular species is usually found in most of my recordings, Insects.... Insects (Class Insecta) are a major group of arthropods and the most diverse group of animals on the Earth, with over a million described species more than double the number of all other living organisms combined. [1] Insects may be found in nearly all environments on the planet, although only a small number of species occur in the oceans where crustaceans tend to predominate instead. There are approximately 5,000 dragonfly species, 2,000 praying mantis, 20,000 grasshopper, 170,000 butterfly and moth, 120,000 fly, 82,000 true bug, 360,000 beetle, and 110,000 bee, wasp and ant species described to date. Estimates of the total number of current species, including those not yet known to science, range from two million to fifty million, with newer studies favouring a lower figure of about six to ten million. Insects usually get a raw deal from most people because, well, they are insects. In fact if you stand around your local “do it yourself store? you will find people buying all kinds of chemicals to eradicate them. But what would we do without them! I for one hate the feel of mosquitos biting the living daylights out of me and I suffer badly from the after effects but I would rather have them than not.
