These are a very important species of insect because they help control crop pests and are even sold to gardeners and farmers as a form of pest control. Their eggs are really interesting because they lay them on a very thin hair like stock with a small white dot on top to protect them from their own siblings that hatch first. Also if you accidentally smash one, they produce a strong unpleasant odor. They are able to eat up to 200 insects in a week per adult. Hungry little things.
