JUST WINGIN’ IT

  WHICH OF THE FOLLOWING INSECT GROUPS HAVE WINGS?

  1. Beetles
  2. Earwigs
  3. Flies
  4. Crickets
  5. Termites
  6. Ants
  7. Bees & Wasps
  8. Cockroaches
  9. Grasshoppers

   THE ANSWER IS ………. ALL OF THEM

    There may be a few wingless species among them, but most insects have wings, even though they may not be visible to the naked eye.  Fleas, lice, silverfish, and firebrats are the only true wingless insects.   Only the adults have fully developed wings in the insects listed above.

    Most inspects have two (2) pairs of wings, but again, they’re not always visible.  Cockroches, grasshoppers, and crickets have flight wings hidden under a pair of front wing covers that match the rest of the body.  Flies are the only insect with one (1) set of functional wings.  Beetles don’t appear to have wings at all, yet the hard outer covering on their back is actually a pair of modified wings.
