There are over 1 million identified species of insects and spiders in the world with many more awaiting discovery. Insects provide a mostly overlooked - and often times misunderstood - window into our fragile ecosystem that involves perfect balance of millions of components. In many ways, insects allow our comfortable world to exist through providing consumable goods, useful consumer products and answers to lingering scientific questions - understanding insects is a small step in understanding the very world you live in.
