Other note: Codes are not case-sensitive.

Woodlice (Roly-Poly and Pill bug)

How do you get rid of roly poly in your house?

Either kill them yourself or call an exterminator. :)

But determine why they are there. An occasional, solitary woodlouse has probably crept in by accident, or been carried in on something. If it's an infestation you are dealing with then merely killing the animals is shooting the messenger, for their colony indicates damp and decaying timber (their food).


What is the niche of any given arthropod?

Arthropods are found everywhere other organisms live, so there is no niche wich suits all arthropods.


What do millipedes eat?

Millipedes are scavengers which feed on decaying plant matter such as leaves, fruits and vegetables, and damp or decaying wood particles.
Feed dark leafy greens, pieces of apple or potato. Since they are scavengers, millipedes may wait until the food has begun to rot a bit before eating it, so don't be too hasty to clean out uneaten food. Remove really rotted food, replacing it with fresh foods every couple of days. They are herbivores. Most species live in and eat decaying plant matter.


What is an arthropod?

The arthropods constitute over 90% of the animal kingdom and are classified in the phylum Arthropoda. They are distinguished from other animals by:

  • an exoskeleton (a skeleton on the outside of the body) body divided into distinct parts
  • jointed legs and appendages
  • bilateral symmetry (both sides of the body are the same)

Class Distinctions

Insects Grasshoppers, butterflies, beetles, ants, etc. 1,000,000 described world species:

  • three body regions: head, thorax, abdomen
  • six legs attached to the thorax (which has 3 segments)
  • adults with one or two pairs of wings attached to the thorax (some have none)
  • two antennae
  • lateral compound eyes

Arachnids Spiders, scorpions, ticks, mites, etc. 65,000 described world species:

  • two body regions (cephalothorax, abdomen)
  • eight legs
  • no antennae
  • Mouth parts are chelicerae (modified appendages) which in spiders are fangs

Crustaceans (technically a subphylum)

Classes include crabs, shrimps, lobsters, barnacles, isopods etc. 44,000 described world species:

  • two body regions
  • two pairs of antennae
  • 5 or more pairs of legs
  • primarily aquatic, few terrestrial

Chilopods Centipedes. 2,800 described world species:

  • well-defined head
  • first pair of legs modified for envenomation
  • flattened top to bottom
  • one pair of legs per segment
  • one pair of antennae

Diplopods Millipedes. 10,000 described world species:

  • two pairs of legs per segments, first four segments have 1 pair legs
  • one pair of antennae
  • well-defined head
  • usually cylindrical.

An arthropod is an invertebrate (meaning it lacks a backbone) with an external skeleton, a segmented body, and jointed appendages. Arthropods belong to the Phylum Arthropoda. Insects, arachnids, centipedes and crustaceans are all arthropods.

An arthropod is an invertabrate animal that has an exoskeleton, a segmented body, and jointed appendages. An ANTHROPOD is a bipedal humanoid (ie Homo Sapien, Homo Neanderthalus, Homo Habilus, Australopithicene Afarensis, and other hominids).

Arthropod is a family which includes insects and spiders.
Arthropods are Invertebrates (no backbone)

First of all, arthropods are NOT insects, insects are only a type of arthropod.

Arthropods are Split into 4 classes/groups.

Crustaceans: Have a hard shell (exoskeleton)

Many legs

No wings

One or 2 pairs of antennae

May live on land or water

Examples: Crabs, Lice, Lobster

Myriapods: Segments Present

1 or 2 pairs of legs per segment

Antennae (1 pair)

No wings

Examples: Centipede, Millipede

Arachnids: No antennae

2 body parts

8 legs (4 pairs)


No wings

Examples: Spiders, Scorpions, Ticks, Mites

Insects: Antennae Present

May have wings

6 legs (3 on each side)

3 body parts (head, thorax, abdomen)

What mini beasts are carnivores?

A carnivore is any animal that eats meat, e.g a dog is a carnivore, a cat is a carnivore, a human is a carnivore.

A mini beast is the general name for insects, bugs and aracnids (spiders)


What kind of wild animals live in Mexico?

There are snakes, mountain lions, and a variety of wild dogs. there is also a tricolor hernon

(please feel free to add on to this)

(please feel free to add on to this)


Which organism is an arthropod with six legs?

An insect.. a bee, butterfly,ant, etc.


What is fear of centipedes and or millipedes called?

myriapodophobia -> fear of millipedes

Chilopodophobia -> fear of centipedes


Does a spider have a backbone?

No, spiders as well as other arachnids (like scorpions) and insects have exoskeletons. That means their bodies have hard outer shells, not internal bones.


How are arthropods different from other invertebrates?

Arhtopods have segmented (jointed) legs, in contrary to other invertebrates like worm.


How are centipedes and millipedes different?

The two classes of Myriapoda are very dissimilar.

Centipedes (class Chilopoda) have flattened bodies and longer antennae for their size.

Millipedes (class Diplopoda) have long, taller, semi-cylindrical bodies.

Another basic difference is the number of legs, and the number per body segment. Centipedes have one set of legs per body segment, while millipedes have two sets. However, some species of centipedes ("hundred feet") have more legs than some species of millipedes ("thousand feet").

The number of legs for centipede species varies from 30 to 354, with odd number of pairs.

The number of legs for millipede species varies from 44 to 750.


What is the exoskeleton of the arthropod made of?



What makes arthropods so unique?

Well... it is an animal that has a hard exoskeleton and is the same on each side and... they have all of these and it can't be anywhere outside of these:

has sections on its Body, Bilateral Symmetry, Many Pairs of limbs, Joined Legs, and a Hard Exoskeleton


Do all arthropods have brains?

Yes, all arthropods have brains.


The shell-like structure that encases the bodies of arthropods?



How would you describe an arthropod?

An arthropod are invertebrates with exoskeletons there are many of them. Some are bugs, and have jointed legs.


Is a dragon fly an arthropod?


it is

Earth Sciences

What insect is light green with antenae four shorter legs two very long legs and has pincers?

Could it be a praying mantis?


What group of arthropod is a silverfish?

insect of course.


Why were arthropods the first animals to live on land?

well, they for one were totally more awesome than us, and they were probably better looking too. but the real reason was probably because they felt like it, and it's a free country so why not? by the way, this was posted by derrick C.

Not quite, the real reason is... by chance, they already possessed structures suited to life on land so the transition was easier.


Which of the five classes of arthropods is the most diverse arachnida chilopoda crostacea diplopoda insecta?

Insecta you nucking retards!


Is a snail a arthropod?

A snail is a mollusk rather than an arthropod.


What are the common characteristics of arthropods?

Arthropods have all of these characteristics: * The body is divided into segments. * Paired and jointed appendages (legs, antennae, claws, and external mouth parts) * Exoskeleton (hard outer covering made of chitin and no internal bones). Periodically, the rigid exoskeleton is shed in a process called moulting. * Bilateral symmetry (each side is a mirror image of the other side). * Specialised mouth parts * Compound eyes (like a fly) * The circulatory system an open one, the only blood vessel usually being a tubular structure dorsal to the alimentary canal with lateral openings in the abdominal region. * The nerves run along the lower part of the body below the digestive system - all except the brain. * Respiration by means of gills, or tracheae and spiracles. * The sexes nearly always separate. Not all of these characteristics are unique to arthropods, but the combination makes an arthropod, and all must be present.


What are some different kinds of arthropods?

Some examples of arthropods are:

  • Insects, including butterflies and ants
  • centipedes and millipedes
  • Arachnids, including ticks, spiders
  • Crustaceans, including shrimp, barnacles, and crabs
