Learn why bees make honey, how to identify insects, why leafcutter ants build underground nests, how diving beetles live and breathe in water, and how mosquitoes spread disease. Discover how a wasp's compound eyes work, which insects have ears on their knees, how wasp grubs feed on living caterpillars, how a butterfly can smell with its wings, and much, much more!
