Bug vs. Insect
Posted on June 30, 2016
Did you know there is a difference between a bug and an insect?
<li>A bug is a certain type of insect. Some examples you might be familiar with are the boxelder bug, milkweed bug, assassin bug, and stink bug.</li>
<li>True bugs have a stylet (a mouth shaped like a straw) that they use to suck plant juices from plants. The assassin bugs use their stylets to suck blood from other insects.<img class=” size-thumbnail wp-image-17654 alignright” src=”http://wp.a1exterminators.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/images-150×150.jpg” alt=”images” width=”150″ height=”150″ /></li>
<li>The front wings of true bugs are thickened and colored near where they are attached to the insect’s body, and are clearer and thinner towards the hind end of the wing. The hind wings are usually clear and tucked underneath the front wings.</li>
