    Insects:

    Any of very numerous, mostly small arthropods of the class Insecta, having six segmented legs in the adult stage and a body divided into three parts (the head, thorax, and abdomen). The head has a pair of antennae and the thorax usually has one or two pairs of wings. Most insects undergo substantial change in form during development from the young to the adult stage. ( cit.)

    About molting

    Through the early years of the insect's existence, molting allows the body of the insect to expand under controlled and protected conditions.

    Their exoskeleton > their underlying bone structure is located on the outside of their bodies with corresponding organs and muscles located underneath this hard shell. So in order for the insect to increase in size it has to shed its current skin in favor of the new larger skin underneath.

    Female and male milkweed bugs:

    Look on the ventral (belly) side of the bugs. The tip of the abdomen is black, followed by a solid orange segment (with tiny black dots at the edges). If the next two segments following the orange band have solid black bands, the bug is a male.

    However, if the segment following the orange band is orange in the middle, making it look like it has two large black spots on the sides, followed by a segment with a solid black band, the bug is female.

    Males tend to be smaller than females. ( cit )

    There are 3 important ameliorations between bugs and genuine bugs. a million. A trojan horse is a definite form of insect. some examples you need to be acquainted with are the boxelder trojan horse, milkweed trojan horse, murderer trojan horse, and stink trojan horse. 2. genuine bugs have a stylet (a mouth shaped like a straw) that they use to suck plant juices from flowers. The murderer bugs use their stylets to suck blood from different bugs. 3. the front wings of genuine bugs are thickened and coloured close to the place they are related to the insect's physique, and are clearer and thinner in direction of the hind end of the wing. The hind wings are in many cases sparkling and tucked below the front wings. look into the hyperlink under for extra information. Edit: I might desire to have only stated "dito." all and sundry is applying this hyperlink.
