The scientific study of Insects. If the question is about some other group of arthropod use 'arthropod' tag.
Questions about the biology and identification of members of Insecta.
Insecta is a group of arthropods with the following basic characteristics:
- body divided into head, thorax and abdomen
- three pairs of thoracic legs.
Insects do not include Chelicerates, myriapods, or crustaceans. If any of these (or arthropods in general) are the focus of your question, please use the arthropod tag.
- If the question is about arachnids (spiders, ticks, or mites) use tag arachnology.
- If you are curious about or think you may have found bed bugs, please see this post
