A few FUN bug facts to share with your kiddos today!

B and I were reading a book on insects this morning and I could NOT believe the facts I learned!  Here are  few we thought were super cool!

  • If you hear a cricket and count how many chirps is makes in 15 seconds then add 37 you can calculate the temperature outside!
  • It is VERY hard to kill a cockroach.  They can go long periods without food and water, if they loose a leg, the will regrow another one, and they can live 9 days without a HEAD!
  • Mosquitos have 47 teeth
  • If you look VERY close, a housefly actually jumps backwards a bit before it takes off, and a housefly's feet are 10 million times MORE sensitive than our tongues!
