Entomology is the branch of science which focuses on insect specimen in a simpler form, Entomology is the scientific study of insects. A scientist who practices the study of entomology is called an entomologist.

Entomologists are often found at universities and they are mostly occupied with the study of economically inportant insects, because it is easier to get funding for research into plague species or honey-producing bees or textile producing silkworms than for a harmless little beetle that just chews some dead wood in the forest. There are over millions of specimens out there and even more to be discovered, A gentle note, that entomology can differ as well, or we can say that entomology can also focus on certain insect behaviors that may vary in every different species of arthropods insect behaviors can also be difficult under direct observations, Insect behaviours depict their survival and regular habits. while on the other hand we have forensic entomology which focuses on solving crimes by studying the insects found on dead bodies such as corpse flies, maggots and other insects found during the seen of crime.

The upside of this is that there is still an awful lot to be discovered about practically any insect you care to name that is not 'economically important'. Generally even very basic information, like what it eats exactly, how many eggs it lays, how it finds a mate, and how long do the several stages of development take, is not known. Listed below are different forms of entomology as it can also be about a particular Family of insects such as Odonata for example which a composition of damselflies & dragonflies, their are a few entomologists that only focus on this field in particular.

Lepidoptera-Brief interview

Lepidoptera is the Family of insects which is composed of butterflies and moths, for a detailed look into Lepidoptera click here. Lepidopterans have the largest wings as per their body length, Their wings are covered with small pigmented scales to protect their delicate wings from being harmed, these insects follow the complete metamorphosis, in their larval stage, most lepidopterans primarily derive their food from autotrophs (plants) and some species are also considered as an agricultural pest however as they develop into a chrysalis several changes take place once they emerge from their chrysalis they reveal their bright scaly wings that may take some time to dry out. As we've mentioned earlier their young ones are considered as an agricultural pest as for in some species but in their Adult form they help plants reproduce as Lepidopterans are one of the main insects that carry out pollination.

Coleoptera-A brief introduction

If you want a more detailed explanation click here. This family of insects consists of beetles, this family of insects may divide into further groups such as Blattodea, scarabs and many others. This family of insects is the most numerous one as Half of the insects are entirely belong to Coleoptera. These insects have two sets of wing, one is for flight while the other set of wings is meant to protect the inner whings which is known as an elytra. Some beetles have a polished-metallic elytra which may reflect light examples of such critters are The golden chafer, Rainbow sheild beetle, jeweled beetle.
