      did you know that a majority of adult moths cannot eat, either because they lack mouths or their mouths are too small? as larvae the moths try to eat as much as possible so they live for about a week after emerging from their pupa; in this time, they try to reproduce as much as possible before they die.

      speaking of moths, in species where they have feathery antennae, the males have much wider, much bushier antennae than the females; this is for detecting pheromones from the females as they wait for a male to arrive. the females, not needing to detect these pheromones, have much slimmer antennae.

      the reason why moths are so attracted to light despite being nocturnal is because some insects navigate at a constant angle from a light source such as the moon. they use the fucking moon to navigate. but the thing is, manmade lights are much closer and thus, the angle of the light source in relation to the moth changes as they fly by, which confuses their navigation. moths aren't actually attracted to light sources, they're just lost.

      moths heat up the muscles in their wings by vibrating them, because they do not have the energy of the sun to do so for them. speaking of which, moths' bodies are covered in lots of fuzzy hairs to keep heat in their bodies

      while moths are important economically (due to silkworms producing, well, silk when they pupate) they're also important culinarily. like, some people eat moths. which i admit, is pretty fucking weird.

      i dont know nearly enough about butterflies compared to moths, but the first thing most butterflies eat after emerging from their cocoon is... the cocoon itself.

      dam... u rite. in a healthy bee colony, 15% of the bee population are male - the rest are female, and if the food stores are too low to sustain the colony, the females will cannibalize the males.

      honeybees lose their stingers upon stinging people because of the barbs on them hooking onto your skin; the stinger is connected to the bee's organs and will tear them out when the stinger is removed. queen bees lack the barbs on their stingers, allowing them to sting multiple times - though this is usually reserved just for killing rival queen bees. male bees lack stingers altogether, because bee stingers are modified ovipositors that males by definition don't have. we should be glad they're modified ovipositors, because imagine if they were still laying eggs instead.

      speaking of which, there ARE parasitoid wasps that still lay eggs through their stingers; they lay them in other bugs and stuff and caterpillars so that when the eggs hatch, they eat the host alive.

      bees have been shown to express shock - namely, when they bump into each other, they make a "whoop" sound, similar to how one would say "whoops!" or "excuse me!"

      Parasitoid wasps are fucking metal. They shut down the regulatory processes in the host so instead of going into metamorphosis, it just keeps on growing. Then the wasps come bursting out through the integument to wreak havoc upon the earth.

      contrary to popular belief, mosquitos actually primarily drink flower nectar. male mosquitos do not suck blood, but the female mosquitos do, because flower nectar doesn't provide the protein needed for the female mosquitos to lay their eggs. not only this, but humans are actually second priority targets for mosquitos; they prefer to go after small mammals (like squirrels and raccoons) and birds, and only when they get desperate do humans seem like an attractive target

      A honey bee (or honeybee) is any member of the genus Apis, primarily distinguished by the production and storage of honey and the construction of perennial, colonial nests from wax. In the early 21st century, only seven species of honey bee are recognized, with a total of 44 subspecies,[1] though historically six to eleven species are recognized. The best known honey bee is the Western honey bee which has been domesticated for honey production and crop pollination. Honey bees represent only a small fraction of the roughly 20,000 known species of bees.[2] Some other types of related bees produce and store honey, including the stingless honey bees, but only members of the genus Apis are true honey bees. The study of bees, which includes the study of honey bees, is known as melittology.

      The genus name Apis is Latin for "bee".[3]

      Although modern dictionaries may refer to Apis as either honey bee or honeybee, entomologist Robert Snodgrass asserts that correct usage requires two words, i.e. honey bee, as it is a kind or type of bee, whereas it is incorrect to run the two words together as in dragonfly or butterfly, because the latter are not flies.[4] Honey bee, not honeybee, is the listed common name in the Integrated Taxonomic Information System, the Entomological Society of America Common Names of Insects Database, and the Tree of Life Web Project.[5][6][7] Nonetheless, compounds gradually solidify in the orthography of natural languages in ways that do not always comply with prescription.

      Honey bees appear to have their center of origin in South and Southeast Asia (including the Philippines), as all the extant species except Apis mellifera are native to that region. Notably, living representatives of the earliest lineages to diverge (Apis florea and Apis andreniformis) have their center of origin there.[8]

      The first Apis bees appear in the fossil record at the Eocene-Oligocene boundary (34 mya), in European deposits. The origin of these prehistoric honey bees does not necessarily indicate Europe as the place of origin of the genus, only that the bees were present in Europe by that time. Few fossil deposits are known from South Asia, the suspected region of honey bee origin, and fewer still have been thoroughly studied.

      No Apis species existed in the New World during human times before the introduction of A. mellifera by Europeans. Only one fossil species is documented from the New World, Apis nearctica, known from a single 14 million-year-old specimen from Nevada.[9]

      The close relatives of modern honey bees – e.g. bumblebees and stingless bees – are also social to some degree, and social behavior seems a plesiomorphic trait that predates the origin of the genus. Among the extant members of Apis, the more basal species make single, exposed combs, while the more recently evolved species nest in cavities and have multiple combs, which has greatly facilitated their domestication.
