    This is a promotional video made by Japanese firm Earth Chemical of a cockroach trap that's 929-times the size of the regular cockroach traps they sell, to show just how strong they are. They have a scientist, runner and sumo wrestler try to cross the trap without getting stuc... / Continue →

    65-year old grandmother Carol Howarth of Wales was shocked to find a massive swarm of bees following her car. And I would be too. Allegedly the bee's queen had gotten trapped in Carol's trunk and the bees were swarming to come rescue her. Sounds like a Disney movie to me. I... / Continue →

    This is the 62.4cm (24.5-inch) stick bug collected in the Guangxi Zhuang region of China by Insect Museum of West China researcher Zhao Li. That is a bigass bug. In my mind everything past its back legs is penis, making this insect more than half penis and four times the man... / Continue →

    This is the Spider Catcher (although somebody else is selling the exact same thing called My Critter Catcher so I'm not really sure what's going on there, nor do I care). It's a stick with plastic bristles on the end that close at the pull of a trigger to trap spiders. Then y... / Continue →

    This is a video of a group of ants moshing their teensy little hearts out. Or at least that's what it looks like. Does anybody actually know what's going on here? I found several other videos on Youtube of the same thing. Did they just fight and kill some other ants or some... / Continue →

    This is the Splorch ovipositor sex toy from Primal Hardwere. It was designed to resemble an alien or insect's egg-laying organ and used to squeeze homemade gelatin eggs into your own holes (eggs are inserted into the rear of the toy and massaged forward). It is probably not t... / Continue →

    This is the miniature samurai armor made by Japanese artist Yoneji Inamura entirely out of dead bugs. That is a lot of bugs. I wonder where he got all those bugs. You think he collected them himself? There are some bugs on my porch if you're interested. Do you need any rol... / Continue →

    This is a giant gallery of the balloon insects and animals twisted by Japanese balloon artist Matsumoto-san. A lot of them are unbelievable. Just think: if this guy is already making things so impressive, just imagine what he could create if he ever found out there are more ar... / Continue →

    Ampulex dementor is a newly described species of wasp from the Mekong region in Southeast Asia named after the Dementors from the Harry Potter series. Obviously, anything named after Dementors is bad news, and it's only a matter of time before there's some new street drug name... / Continue →

    This is a timelapse of a bunch of bees being born. It was fascinating to watch. Apparently a stork doesn't bring baby bees the way it does human babies. I didn't know that, although I probably should have suspected it. I'm gonna be honest -- I'm not the smartest student in ... / Continue →

    Please no, "What is this? A watch for ants?!" First of all, a watch that doesn't tell time isn't a watch, it's a bracelet. Secondly, I'm not convinced the $59 Ant Watch from the Analog Watch Company isn't an early April Fools' joke. It sounds pretty suspect. Thirdly, that ... / Continue →

    This is a video of an orchid mantis (previously: a bunch of pictures of them) mimicking an orchid to catch a bee and EAT ITS FILTHY POLLINATING FACE OFF. The mantises also eat flies and butterflies -- pretty much anything that's attracted to an orchid. Humans are attracted to... / Continue →

    This is an ad for the upcoming Pepsi Super Bowl 49 Halftime Show featuring a live insect (and spider) band. It's worth a watch, and that's saying a lot because I only drink Coke. Sadly, the band never got to finish the rest of its tour because of my foot. Keep going for the ... / Continue →

    This is a video from Youtuber precarious333 starring his adult male giant Texas katydid (Neobarrettia spinosa). Highlights include closeups of it breathing, chirping, cleaning itself, showing off its threat display AND STARING INTO THE DEPTHS OF YOUR SOUL. You know, sometimes... / Continue →

    WARNING: Tons of Missouri good ol' boy and gurl cussin'. Also, video is disgusting. This is a video of a guy complaining that a moth flew into his ear and it hurts. Then, when his friends start investigating, they find a BONUS tick inside that he didn't know was there. Even... / Continue →

    This is video of a rarely seen behavior by ants in which they form 'daisy-chains' to haul away something much larger than themselves. In this case, a dead millipede. Could you imagine being an ant out foraging for food when you stumble across a dead millipede? JACKPOT. That... / Continue →

    In what's sure to become the latest dieting craze, scientists have discovered that the bite from a Lone Star tick can actually make a person allergic to red meat. Dammit, why can't it make me allergic to salad? Then I could eat everything else on my plate and my mom would sti... / Continue →

    ZORAK?! This is a video of a semi-transparent glass mantis gnawing on a blue bottle fly. You can see the pieces of the fly traveling through the mantis's body as it's digested. Eventually, those pieces will become doodoo. And that dookie will fertilize the earth, eventually... / Continue →

    This is a deep fried tarantula served up by the The Bug Chef (aka David George Gordon), a man who travels around cooking bugs and speaking about the benefits of eating insects. Now, not to sound too progressive or anything, but I've actually eaten spiders before. IN MY SLEEP.... / Continue →

    This is the giant dobsonfly, the current record holder for largest flying aquatic insect. They can measure almost 8.5-inches across. For reference, that is 8-inches entirely too large for my liking. Large enough to cover the face of a human adult, this scary-looking insect i... / Continue →
