BUGS FOR BEGINNERS

Insects are the most abundant animals on earth. More than one million different types of insects have been identified. They live in just about every situation or habitat on earth. Insects have lived on earth for more than 300 million years. As you will see, insects are just about everywhere! If you take the time to observe them carefully, you will find them very interesting.

No matter where you live or what you do, you will be able to find insects. They can live in just about any situation or climate. Nearly everybody will have some type of problem with insects at some time in their life. Some insects eat our crops or food in storage; others can bite or sting us, our livestock, or our pets. A few insects spread diseases. Some eat our clothing and other household furnishings, and some even eat the wood in our homes. Certain insects are helpful to us by producing products we can use (for example, honey), by pollinating our crops, or by attacking pest insects. However, most insects have no importance to our well-being except that they are interesting creatures to observe.

Because of this course, my point of view towards insects has changed. I approach them in a scientific way. It is surprising to know the diversity of insects in my neighborhood.

Excellent course to start with if you are keen about learning insects from scratch . How far you go with your interest is dependent on you, but this course gives you a solid foundation.
