Hey kids! Lets look at INSECTS!

So, I'm currently working on a highstreet project in which I have to choose a trend (La Parisienne) and do some designs based on my trend after putting together a research sketchbook. For my project i've been looking at insects, lovely little insects. Here are some interesting insect facts I have learnt.

  • The longest insect is the walking stick insect which can reach 33cm
  • When the ant queen dies, so does the entire colony because there are no new workers
  • The dragonfly can fly up to 50 miles per hour
  • Mosquitoes prefer children over adults
  • A flea can jump 130 times its own height
  • Honey bees have hair on their eyes
  • Ants have a better sense of smell than dogs
  • If you swap the C and the S in insect it spells incest

Aren't insects good?! I think if I were an insect i'd be an ant, I reckon i'd be a good ant.

  1. your too lazy to be an ant girl! they work all the time. You would be like one of those lazy ants what sit on top of the other ants leaves on the way back to the crib. I would be like that too, I'd make you carry me!
