What Are Parasites?
The name parasite describes a group of insects, called an arthropod. The name arthropod describes what they do; they are not like animals, they can fly, walk, run, eat, and reproduce, but are not humans. Some of the most common arthropods are termites, crickets, moths, and ants. Most of the time they feed by laying eggs or larvae on the earth, but they can also reproduce by taking a nectar, water, or dead plant material, and using it to make new larvae. Some arthropods do not have a larval stage, they have an adult stage that is bigger and faster, and they can be found in soil, the air, or water.
There are many kinds of insects, and all are different kinds of arthropods, and can feed on various things. For example, a cockroach may have a lot of food, but they also have to eat a lot of other stuff, so they can't be considered the most nutritious of food. So, there are many different types of insects that have different characteristics and are commonly used in different areas of the world to feed the earth. Some insect can grow to large size, and can even eat things that other insects don't eat, but they are small and don't have the ability to reproduce. Some are very efficient and don't need any energy to keep growing.
