I love bugs. I'm fascinated by them. I can sit and watch them for hours. I like to watch ants and how they work together. Carrying food on their back. Some times they come across a poor innocent little bug all alone and gang up on it. Biting and bullying it till the poor thing dies. The they take it back to the nest so the queen can enjoy the food and make more babies. There is also the beautiful butterflies. I love watching butterflies. They are so beautiful flittering around each flower. Trying to find nectar. I think butterflies love to have fun. But some times they get caught up in another bugs web. Then they are killed and eaten as well.Spiders are so cool to watch. Especially when they have a web and they catch a poor innocent little insect in it. The insect is just minding it s own business running through the woods and Poof it gets caught in a web. Then the spider sucks out their insides. Poor bug never had a chance. Did you know that spiders are not insects. The belong to the arachnid family. Just a little trivia for ya lol. Do you like bugs and what is your favoites?? I know you have to like some bugs even if its a butterfly.

yes they are cool to watch. They kind of dart around and look like they are actually having fun.

I like dragonflies too. I seen a lot of them around lately and even seen a white one with black wings the other day, which I never seen before. I think they are pretty.

That's what happens to someone who has been locked up in a tower for too long... Anyway. Princess, what do we do with bugs? We catch some and save them for your dinner table. As for the rest, we just execute them on sight so that they won't be pests. ;-)

I love dragonflies that zoom here and there...then stop....and hang suspended in air with their wings beating so fast you cant see them move. With their glistening wings and irridescent bodies, you think if he stays there like that you can catch him but as soon as the thought evolves...he is gone. I love caterpillars, the bright green ones that make a loop with their body as the move along. I love bees, the hover and land and fill their golden yellow pollen sacs, have a sip or two of water from the bowl near the tap then it's off! Back to the hive to drop off their load of pollen then head out again for another run till they die of exhaustion.

Its nice to know more people like bugs. They are the most populated creature on earth. They will be here long after we are gone .

I like some bugs and insects, like ladybugs,butterflies and dragonflies. I can't stand spiders though, but like you mentioned they are really not an insect.But they are so nasty looking and sneaky. Weaving their web and catching the poor little unsuspecting bugs. The bugs I don't like are roaches. They come and invade your home and you often do't even know they are there until you turn on the light and see them scurrying! ewwwwww Once they have their sight set on you though, you can't get rid of them, even the exterminator often can't help. They also carry diseases and they are just plain grosse.

Oh yes and roaches can live forever they eleven live after their heads are cut off. I am so glad i don't have a roach infestation. I would just up and move to another part of the world. Like i said if i could be an insect it would be a ladybug. What kind of insect would you be rip?

I don't have any roaches either thankfully, but I heard the horror stories lol. I was going to say I would like to be a firefly, but people like catching those and out them in a jar, so that's out. Then I was thinking butterfly, but again, collectors like to catch those and pin them behind glass, so I rather not lol. Ladybugs are a pretty good choice, nobody dares to step on a ladybug lol. But I think I would like to be a grasshopper. Maybe I am influenced by a cartoon I saw once as a child, but grasshoppers seem to have the life. So I would like to be a grasshopper.

yes it very educational, and it shows that they all have there life goals and if you have children and are in the garden or park then if you see an ant, dont trod on it as chances are its doing a very important job!!

Wow-- I never really thought about bugs-- I don't watch them- My favorite insect is the butterfly followed by the lightning bug- My daughter and I chase them around at night catching them- they are cool how the light up.. butterflies are just very pretty! Any other kind of bug- I'm sorry to say I usually squish them if they are in the house and if they are outside- I just ignore them.

I never squish any bug i will take it outside if its inside. Well maybe a mosquito that is biting me so I guess i would squish it. lol

I have always liked the ladybugs and the lightning bugs (fireflies). I haven't seen any ladybugs like I used to and there are few lightning bugs out must be getting less population for these bugs. As for spidrer yuck (no good) I used to see lots of caterpillars and watched tehm turn to a butterfly, I miss watching that.

Yippie.... bugs? Where? I am a bug catcher. I see one, I catch one. The difference is that the ones I catch are not those with life. I catch those who try to mess up routines and logic and make my working life difficult. I troubleshoot computer programs and fix any bugs detected. lol.

I think bugs are disgusting. Well, one time an ant was carrying food and I knocked the food off his back and he ran off =) I've alway been afraid of bugs, they are so scary.

Now that I have Fred to feed, whenever a fly or mosquito comes into the house I collect it with a glass and trap it, I then put it into the aqarium for Fred for his meal it don't take him long to jump, pounce and gobble! I love watching spiders spin their webs and trap those nasty flies! I've caught about a dozen today already! He's not very keen on moths for some reason

I can't stand bugs they creep my right out . I don't mind them if they are outside but I don't want them in my house . If I had to pick something that I thought was kind of nice it would be a butterfly because they are pretty but even at that , I don't want to pick one up . They are actually quite beautiful when they are flying by but the thought of touching one is not for me as it is still a creature .

Over the years I have watched bugs do their thing. As long as they aren't doing it to me, that is fine...lol. You can't help but feel sorry for some poor little critter or creature that meets its most undesirable fate at the hands of another critter. But that is survival in the bug world. I would rather not know who wants to eat who or how these creatures manage to survive by being predators.

I like butterflies, ladybugs and fireflies. I want none of the rest of them near me. Ants are hard workers and they can do whaever they want, as long as it is outdoors and they do not interfere with me or come near me or toucch my food, I am fine and they will be fine.

I have always liked watching butterflies, dragonflies, and some of the huge moth's you see at night flying around. But other then that looking, I wouldn't touch a bug for anything! And I can't stand if one if on me. Spiders are the worst! LOL something about all those hairy little legs just grosses me out.

Okay...I don't mind watching ants outside...they can be fascinating. And I never considered butterflies to be bugs. Bugs are what come into your house and invade your space! LOL. I hate spiders in the house but most of all hate and despise those water bug/roaches that have started to get bold and come in this year for the first time! YUCK! They drive me up the wall! And give me the willies.

My bugs are Bees! I have 470 colonies of Honeybees. I am fascinated by them. I go out everyday and work with them. I check to make sure they have a Queen, I look for fresh eggs. I check to see if they have honey to eat, then I add a honeybox, so they can make some honey for me. Yes I love the bees so much I must have Millions of them!

I remember as a child catching fire flies to place in to a jar so that I could watch them light up. My children and I have been doing that a few nights a week. I wait until the children fall asleep to release them back in to the night. I would like to give parents a hint on how to catch fireflies. Turn your flashlight on for a few seconds in response to a fireflies flash. If it is a male firefly it will think that you are the brightest female and come towards you. A female firefly is surpose to light up to a male that has the faster flash.

I am not a big fan of bugs so I stay away from them except for ladybugs and butterflies. I find bugs disgusting and prefer they stay in their natural habitat.
