Their colonies range in size from a few hundred individuals to enormous societies with several million individuals. Termite queens have the most extended lifespan of any insect in the world, with some queens reportedly living up to 30 to 50 years.

Wasps and Hornets

The most commonly known wasps, such as yellowjackets and hornets, are in the family Vespidae and are eusocial, living together in a nest with an egg-laying queen and non-reproducing workers. However, the majority of wasp species are solitary, with each adult female living and breeding independently.

Mosquitos

Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes are small, midge-like flies that constitute the family Culicidae. Females of most species are ectoparasites, whose tube-like mouthparts (called a proboscis) pierce the hosts' skin to consume blood. The word "mosquito" is Spanish for "little fly."

Thousands of species feed on the blood of various kinds of hosts, mainly vertebrates, including mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and even some types of fish.
