Insects are the most numerous, diverse and successful group in the Animal Kingdom. Insects perform many vital functions, such as pollination, waste recycling and regulation of other insects through predation. They are important components in the balance of nature due to the many roles they play.
The pollination of flowers by bees is even critical for the survival of humans on the planet.
