potential predators waste prescious

We take a look at seven of these insects that prove: Bug is beautiful!

1. These mini warriors have pretty smart warfare defences. Shield bugs, or stink bugs, have glands in their thorax (the part between the head and the abdomen) between their first and second pair of legs that produce a foul-smelling liquid, which is used for defense and released when the bug feels threatened.

2. This is a picture example of how the sheild pattern resembles a face. Like a huge sign saying “don’t even think about it” to predators - including humans - the casperonian looks slightly grumpy, and for good reason. Just recently, scientists have discovered the nutritional value of edible stink bugs. They’re a good source of protein, fat, amino acids, vitamins and minerals. Stink bug stew, anyone?

3. In the photograph, this barca branca stink bug looks huge but it is only about 1 cm long in real life, making the markings on the mask all the more intricate.

4. This too-sexy-to-be-eaten bug with his/her sunglasses is actually a crop pest. Known as cotton stainers, these bugs feed on cotton and get crushed with it during harvesting. Their red bodies leave stains, which are hard to remove.

5. These firebugs seem to huddle together to discuss their strategy. They are common in Europe and are also part of the cotton stainer family. Their scientific name is pyrrhocoris apterus.

6. The Tomasz Gorny is another stink bug, also found in Europe, whose shield looks like it is made of leather.

7. This stink bug from Singapore looks like it’s carrying a gorilla-mask on its back. Amazing, isn’t it?
