At Zevo, we know bugs are super smart. But how smart are they? We talked to some of our entomologist friends (a fancy word for bug scientist) and got the low-down on some interesting bug facts.
Fruit flies have been to space.
Usually, we don’t think much of the fruit fly, unless it’s buzzing around our kitchens. But fruit flies have a long history of being more interesting that you might think. Watch below to learn what fruit flies and humans have in common and just how far they’ve traveled for the sake of science.
Ants can float.
Ants are fascinating little creatures. They are strong and intelligent and able to get into nooks and crannies we would much rather they not. Did you know they can float? Check out this video to learn how ants band together in times of trouble to rise above any obstacle in their way.
Some spiders are cowboys.
Many people are afraid of spiders – and we don’t blame you. These creepy crawlies are the stuff of many nightmares and spooky movie scenes. But some spiders bring an extra, less-spooky flair to the world. Watch below to learn about the Bolas Spider and it’s cowboy ways.
Some roaches birth live young.
We’re sure you’d rather read about any bug other than a roach, but this cockroach fact really got our attention. Most roaches you are familiar with lay egg sacks that later hatch into broods of tiny young. However, some roaches prefer a good old-fashioned live birth. Learn how that impacts the way they feed their little ones in this video.
Whether they are the ones you see in your kitchen or hear about from across the world, bugs are pretty smart. Thankfully, Zevo is way smarter. Check out even more bug facts on our YouTube page and learn how Zevo can help you get rid of household pests here.
