Insects are animals that have exoskeletons comprised of three parts, head, thorax and abdomen. They have six legs that occur in pairs and most have wings. Their heads have compound eyes, antennae and mouthparts. Insects are sensitive to their environment, from their compound eyes, to tiny hairs on their antennae and bodies, which are sensitive to touch, taste and smell. Insects generally go through a transformation from young to adult, beginning with either larval or nymph states.

Arachnids are insect-like arthropods with bodies comprised of two parts, the abdomen and the cephalothorax, which contains the head and thorax. In comparison to insects, their eyes are simple instead of compound. They lack wings and antennae, and have four pairs of legs instead of the six found in insects. Arachnida as a group include scorpions, spiders, ticks and mites. Some are parasite pests, while others are herbivorous and destroy commercial crops. Some arachnids have a bite or sting that's poisonous to humans.

On this page you will find insect stock photography and arachnid stock pictures in a large variety of subjects including beetles, butterflies, bees, flies, wasps, spiders, scorpions, dragonflies, ladybugs and household pests like aphids, mosquitoes, cockroaches and silverfish.
