I don't think that anything would be wrong with them. . . hmm. . . why dont you test them? Kidding. . .i wouldn't keep them if you're really trying NOT to get pregnant.
They lay eggs, which are sheltered from the cold weather by topsoil  until spring. That's why you don't see many large bugs higher  north. The permafrost is too thick for them to dig through.
Spanish moth larvae cause damage by chewing gregariously on leaves,  bulbs, and rhizomes of the host plants. Economic damage to lilies  by Spanish moth has been noted by Biezanko and Guerra (1975),  Bourquin (1935), Bruner et al. (1975), D'Angelo (1941), Figeiredo  and Pereira (1944), Gundlach ...
No, but they are hosts to certain protozoans, such as  Ophryocystis elektroscirrha , which affects only  butterflies. The monarch has a species defense against predators,  which are toxic glycosides found in some parts of its body -- these  are unpalatable to predators.
They are just called eggs, what hatches from them are called larva  or larvae.
Yes a fly does, but it is so small that a naked eye can't see it

The orchid mantis is an rare insect that can be found only on white  flowers. When disturbed, it flies away into the air with a buzzing  noise. It is slightly similar to the mantis in appearance, and is  found more frequently in sunny weather. When approached, the orchid  mantis will raise its...
If you're keeping mantises, you just need to put them together for  them to mate. If the female becomes aggressive or the male runs  away, take the male out and try again the next day. Remember not to  disturb them. Also, when the male dismounts from the female, remove  him from the enclosure.
It all depends on how much other fish you have in the tank. Oscars  need a lot of room so if there's tons of other fish in there it  could cause problems. But if you have a couple it would be fine. If  its a male Oscar its probably best you don't have them in a tank  with any other Oscars. I...
The praying mantis in the wild is not usually cannibalistic as part of the mating ritual. It is only in captivity that they turn cannibal. One of the reasons for this is that in captivity, they are often not given a sufficient amount of food to support the egg case.   To prevent mantis mating...
antennas, eyes, mouth. If that didn't answer your question look up  butterfly anatomy :)
It depends on how long it lives, but an efficient flower sometimes  creates a few hundred joules a day. That's about 50 calories, but  the plant eats most of these for itself.
They are called scavengers or detritivores.
the answer is simple you can not just overcome a reaction, it like  if you wanted to get rid of you nose (This is just an example) you  can't get rid of your nose because it is part of your body. that  reaction is part of your body you cant just overcome reactions like  you overcome fear. you...
The ladybug's head is round and thin and includes the  ladybug's mouth, eyes, and antennae. 
Mosquitoes primarily feed on nectar from flowers. Both males and females will feed in this manner, sucking the nectar through a proboscis, much the same as a butterfly does. However, the female is also capable of drinking blood, an act called haematophagy. Females do not require blood to survive,...
Yes it is it is very poisonous to termites

Spiders are examples of animals that eat bees and wasps.
If you were an ant one way that you could convince an anteater not  to eat you would be to tell the anteater how terrible you taste.  You could then entice him with an ant of a different color and let  him know how much tastier they are.

If someone has difficulty breathing after a bee sting, they should seek professional medical help and not try and self medicate. They could go into anaphylactic shock which is potentially fatal.
In the summer they normally feed on the leaves, flowers and seed pods of boxelder tree or silver maple. ALSO INNOCENT SOULS
It depends on the type of tree but when honey bees (Apis Mellifera) are living in the wild, they will often build their nest inside a hollow in a tree which provides them with protection from the weather and some protection from predators. Some species of tree will have an abundance of nectar for...
no they are not, they don't even bite
a different type of a carpenter bee
they have huge eyes covering 3/4 their face and are very fuzzy
From my experience, no. I've kept a few of them and studied them in the their natural habitat. They are not swimmers; remember that any creature that can't swim will not go into large bodies of water but they do drink water either from dew or small puddles. Most insects are the same way.
They do this because MOST  insects don't live a long life and so they lay there eggs at at  one time.
Both have animal cells and a does not have a cell membrane.both  have antenas and both have eyes that cover half their face and also  have tiny multiple legs

Technically all of them. Genes are found in almost every cell'snucleus and are made from strands of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid). Amosquito drinks your blood which is made of red and white bloodcells.
Chitin, like all insects' exoskeletons.
Try taking a photo of the insect you're trying to identify, upload  it, and then [R-CLICK] it and select Search for this image. If you  see a match, click on THAT picture and see if it has a caption.
The kinds of dragonflies are: black saddlebags skimmer, blue  dasher, blue-eyed darner, blue-fronted dancer, common green dancer,  sanddragon, whitetail skimmer, amberwing, pondhawk, familiar bluet,  giant darner, halloween pennant, flying adder, and the widow  skimmer
A cylinder has a height of 16 cm and a radius of 5 cm. A cone has a  height of 12 cm and a radius of 4 cm. If the cone is placed inside  the cylinder as shown, what is the volume of the air space  surrounding the cone inside the cylinder? (Use 3.14 as an  approximation of π.)
A half an inch is equivalent to 1.27 centimeters. Then, divide 50  by 1.27 to get 39.3700787402. 39 termites can fit in 50  centimeters.
Bees eat the nectar and pollen which is produced by flowers.
Ape. Bee in Italian is ape.
bECAUSE I DONT KNOW AND I WANT TO KNOW WHY
fireflies produce some chemical reactions inside their body and  that will allow them to light up and this process is known as bio  luminescence. When oxygen combines with calcium,adenosine  triphosphate and chemical luciferin in the presence of luciferase,  a bio luminescent enzyme is produced.
No. The female firefly lays its fertilized eggs on the ground or  just below the ground and goes its own way. A few weeks later, the  eggs hatch. The baby fireflies (called larvae, looking like little  wormy things) fend for themselves eating other larvae and "bugs".
Put the lady bug in a jar and document its behavior in a journal.

a strange substance called chitin composed most insectoid  exoskeletons. Chitin is usually iridescent green, and is what makes  beetle wings so shiny.
  an answer that could help this person is " a bug that starts with letter o is Octasasis cominica. more known as a wasp"
A butterfly comes out of a pupa or chrysalis.
Caterpillars walk by lifting and compressing the body between the  last two pairs of legs, then moving the last pair of legs forward
Darker-colored insects like to blend in, so they hide from  predators in the shadows. Most arthropods are color blind, so they  can't see red light. This causes them to mistake red objects for  black and dark grey ones, so they don't realize that they're making  themselves more obvious.
great beter than a human
  A ladybig typically represents luck and all things positive.
Wasps like these travel in groups so if one of its family members  gets hurt the brain signal like ours will automatically protect the  family member. For example if someone you knew got hurt you would  stand up for them. Right? That is what wasps do.
the cane beetle were eating a good 23% of all crop grown in  Australia. 
Animals that eat plants and meat are normally referred to as  omnivores. Those that eat meat are called carnivores while those  that eat plants are herbivores.
If a bee stings a rabbit, the rabbit will experience pain and swelling in the area of the sting but will usually survive.
