Insects have six legs. They use their legs to move around on land and to land after they were in flight. These insects include small insects like ants and flies, but they also include bigger insects like bees, cockroaches, moths and butterflies. However, some bugs have only four legs like grasshoppers and beetles. Sometimes, these bugs are thought to be insects, but they are actually a different type of bug and not an insect.
With their legs, they also have wings to help move through the air. The legs are located on the middle part of the insect’s entire body. This area is called the thorax. The thorax has three sections with each pair of legs located on that section. One leg is located on one side of the body with its matching leg located on the other side of the body.
The insect has three main parts of its entire body. They are the thorax, head and abdomen. The thorax contains the legs and wings. The insect has six legs and each leg in on a separate section of the thorax because the thorax has three parts within it. The first part is the prothorax and contains the first set of legs.
Then the mesathorax has the second pair of legs and the metathorax has the third or last pair of legs. The head at the front of the body contains the antennae, eyes and mouth. The eyes may be compound and allow for seeing. The mouth may have different parts. The final part of the insect is its abdomen which has almost a dozen parts to it.
Most insects have three parts to their overall anatomy. As a matter of fact, the term “insect” means “cut into sections.” The sections are thorax, head and abdomen. The thorax is usually found on an insect. It is the center section of the bug and it contains the legs and wings. The legs usually consist of three pairs of them in different sections of the insect.
In regard to the wings, insects usually have a pair or two pairs of wings. However, some insects don’t have wings at all. The abdomen has over ten parts to it and contains some of the insect’s major body systems like digestion. The head has the antennae, eyes and parts of the mouth. Sometimes, an insects head may rotate.
Clean bedding, linens, curtains, and clothing in hot water and dry them on the highest dryer setting. Place stuffed animals, shoes, and other items that can't be washed in the dryer and run on high for 30 minutes. Use a stiff brush to scrub mattress seams to remove bedbugs and their eggs before vacuuming. Vacuum your bed and surrounding area frequently.
After vacuuming, immediately place the vacuum cleaner bag in a plastic bag and place in garbage can outdoors. Encase mattress and box springs with a tightly woven, zippered cover to keep bedbugs from entering or escaping. Bedbugs may live up to a year without feeding, so keep the cover on your mattress for at least a year to make sure all bugs in the mattress are dead. Repair cracks in plaster and glue down peeling wallpaper to get rid of places bedbugs can hide. Get rid of clutter around the bed.
