If you didn’t get enough of our first round of Crazy Bug Facts, here are a few more interesting things you maybe didn’t know. There are a world of crazy bugs, and living in Midwest (luckily) we don’t deal with the craziest ones on a daily basis.

Roaches can survive underwater for up to 5 minutes.

Roaches are designed to survive, and nothing like water submersion (or nuclear fallout) is going to keep them down!

Only 1% of insects are harmful to humans.

But we still don’t want them around our house or yard, or definitely not the bedroom!!!

Wasps drinking fermenting juice have been known to get “drunk” and pass out.

Sounds like a wild bunch of wasps!

Ticks can grow to be the size of a marble.

No thank you…

If crickets were the size of humans, they would be able to leap a basketball court's length.

When are tryouts for the CBA (Cricket Basketball Association)?

Crickets hear sound through their knees.

Who knew….

Mosquitoes flap their wings 500 times a second

They can just flap those wings away from here…

Garden worms have five pairs of hearts

That’s a lot of room for love!

The weight of all the termites in the world outweighs the weight of humans.

That means the combined mass of termites is more than the combined mass of 7 billion humans.
