From Bugs Named After Beyonce to Disease-Detecting Insects

 - Apr 17, 2012
Very few people actually enjoy finding insects around their house, but these insect innovations demonstrate that the creepy crawly bugs that you come across (and can't wait to get rid of) are actually making a huge impact in a variety of different ways.

From the fashion industry's obsession with insect prints to medical advances like bees that can detect diseases through a human being's breath, and of course, the endless amount of artwork that is inspired by these creepy-looking bugs, these insect innovations may teach you to appreciate the little guys.

While this may not stop you from stomping on a spider next time one makes an appearance in your bathroom, maybe these insect innovations will make you want to go out and purchase a blouse with a cute cockroach print on it.
