Most people are disgusted by the insect world but did you know insects play a beneficial part in our lives?

A range of fruits, vegetables, seeds, flowers and other plant matter that we have become accustomed to as stable foods actually rely on insects to pollinate them.

Humans over the years have also used materials created by insects, such as silk, beeswax, shellac and of course honey!

In nature insects also have an important role in the food chain as they are the food of large and higher ranking animals on the food chain. Reptiles, birds and some mammals rely greatly on insects for their food source.
