A hive of bees will fly 90,000 miles, the equivalent of three orbits around the earth to collect 1 kg of honey.
Scientists estimate that insects make up to 90% of all species of animals on the planet and more than half of all living things. They can be found in almost every habitat, from snowy mountain peaks to scorching deserts and they have been around for more than 400 million years, longer than dinosaurs and flowering plants!
Insects do not breathe through their mouths. They inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide via holes called spiracles in their exoskeletons. These holes typically line insects' thoraxes and abdomens.
Butterflies taste with their feet.
