Whether you love them or loathe them, it’s clear that insects can excite emotions in all of us. Encased in glass, they’re a source of wonder. On the loose in your home is another matter.
Insects comprise over three quarters of all species, and were some of the first creatures to colonise land around 400 million years ago (Source: Australian Museum). Which means there are more of them and they’ve been here longer than us.
So they’ve been here longer, and they kill loads of us, but we still see them as an annoyance.
Something to put up with; devoid of personality or feeling.
But they can be beautiful too.
