Asked in Stick Insects
Can stick insects fart?
no Improved Answer: No, stick insects do not fart. Insects do not have lungs so do not breathe like mammals do. Instead they use a system of tubes called tracheae to distribute oxygen to the tissues. The outside openings of tracheae on the surface of their skin are called spiracles, which let oxygen in.
Asked in Biology
What is the site of gaseous exchange in an insect?
Insects have a unique respiratory system made up of small tubes called tracheae. The tracheae connect all parts of the body to small openings on the surface of the insect. Oxygen and carbon dioxide are transported through the tracheae (which the site of gaseous exchange) and from the tracheae to the blood of the insect by diffusion.
Asked in Lungs
What do insects have instead of lungs?
Insects have, in their abdomen, introverted appendages wich form a ramificated structure called tracheal system. Air enters from lateral openings of the abdomen called spiracles, which can be closed, and then flows into tracheae and tracheols (ramifications of tracheae) reaching the hemocoel, where gas excanges occur.
Asked in Animal Life
What animals use trachea to breathe?
Insects use tracheal system of breating not animals and who the animal ? Insects do not breathe through their mouths as we do. The do not have lungs and their blood, which is a watery, yellowish liquid, does not carry oxygen and carbon dioxide around their bodies. Insects have a system of tubes, called tracheae, instead of lungs. These tracheae penetrate right through the insect's body. Air enters the tracheae by pores called spiracles. These spiracles are found on each side of the insect's abdomen. Each segment of the abdomen has a pair of spiracles.

Asked in Garden Insects
What body part do insect use for breathing?
Spiracles and tracheae are the body parts which insects use to do the equivalent of breathe. Specifically, air comes in through small openings on the abdominal surface. Spiracle is the name given to the opening at the end of the abdominal tubes which are called tracheae. Oxygen then spreads to the insect's tissues.
Do crayfish have spiracles?
No. Insects have spiracles and some kinds of spiders have spiracles. Millipedes and centipedes have spiracles. All those are generally land-dwelling animals. Crayfish are crustaceans like crabs are, and crustaceans evolved their means of breathing underwater; they developed gills, not the breathing tubes called tracheae. Tracheae take in air at the spiracles.
Asked in Ants
Do ants breathe?
Like all insects, Ants do indeed breath. However, unlike humans and other mammals they do not have lungs and the oxygen is not carried by the blood. Instead they take oxygen in to their bodies through openings in the abdomen. This system of tubes, called tracheae and tracheoles, allows Atmospheric oxygen to pass to the tissues. The outside openings of tracheae are called "spiracles". Ants are small enough that they need only a few spiracles and these do not have valves to control the oxygen flow, as with larger insects.
Asked in Insects, Zoology or Animal Biology
What kinds of respiratory systems does an insect have?
# Tracheae, which are introverted rigid appendages of the abdomen through which air passes reaching the hemolymph, entering from lateral holes in the abdomen called spiracles, which can be closed. Flying insects have big tracheal dilatations called air sacs to store much air. # Tracheolae, which are similar to tracheae but smaller. # Gills; made of branchial appendages or appendage extroflexions with thin cuticle to allow gas excanges to tracheae, tracheolae or directly to the hemolymph. Insects breathe through a complicated structure of tubes (called tracheae and tracheoles) and air sacs. Oxygen is pulled into the body through openings in their abdomens called spiracles. Once the oxygen has been pulled in, the outer most vents close and the air is forced into increasingly smaller pipes known as tubules, until it reaches the required cells. i think bugs r nice
Asked in Garden Insects, Care of Insects, Stick Insects
What insect hides by blending in with twigs and branches?
Stick insects, which often are called walking sticks, are insects that hide among branches and twigs. Specifically, this particular order of insects is called Phasmatodea or Phasmida, which means "of or relating to phantoms." They may be found throughout the world, but especially in the tropics. They are popular choices when individuals and families seek pet insects.

Asked in Cockroaches
Tracheal system in cockroach?
The tracheal system of an insect is a complex network of tubes (tracheae) which divide and subdivide into tubes of decreasing diameter. The tracheae eventually branch into microscopic tubes, tracheoles, which are less than 1µ in diameter and penetrate each cell of the body. The tracheae are epidermal in origin (when an insect moults, the shed exoskeleton sometimes includes old tracheae because it is continuous with the cuticle). Each tracheal tube is lined with a thin strip of cuticle (called taenidia) that winds spirally through the membranous wall. This cuticular reinforcement of the tracheae prevents the collapse of the tracheal walls and also enables each tube to flex and stretch without restricting air flow. Parts of the tracheal system lack taenidia, facilitating the formation of air sacs which act as reservoirs of air. Insects in dry climates are able to close their spiracles and use the air sacs as a temporary air supply, thus reducing the amount of water lost to the environment. Aquatic insects use the airs sacs as buoyancy regulators as well as an underwater air supply. Moulting insects also rely on their air sacs to inflate their bodies so that they may break free of their old exoskeletons.
