Thou art a female, Katydid! I know it by the trill That quivers through thy piercing notes So petulant and shrill. I think there is a knot of you Beneath the hollow tree, A knot of spinster Katydids,— Do Katydids drink tea? ~ Holmes—To an Insect.
There are 12,000 different kinds of beetles in the United States and over 300,000 species in the world.
Beetles are found on land and in fresh water and can adapt to almost any environment
Beetles can both hurt and help the environment. Some beetle species destroy crops or property, while some species help get rid of garbage, eat dead trees or help pollinate flowers.
Adult beetles have two sets of wings.
Beetles cannot see very well, so they communicate using pheromones, sounds or vibrations.
“O’er folded blooms On swirls of musk, The beetle booms adown the glooms And bumps along the dusk.”
~ James Whitcomb Riley
“Most Internet users seem to have the attention span of grasshoppers.“
~ Stephen King
“All flying insects that walk on all fours are to be detestable to you. There are, however, some winged creatures that walk on all fours that you may eat: those that have jointed legs for hopping on the ground.Of these you may eat any kind of locust, katydid, cricket or grasshopper. But all other winged creatures that have four legs you are to detest.”
Bible: Leviticus 11
“Little ladybug on my arm you wear a heart as part of your charm You joined me on this sunny day just for a moment then you flew away.” ~ Author Unknown
