Dragonfly -  Dragonflies were some of the first winged insects to evolve, some 300 million years ago. Modern dragonflies have wingspans of only two to five inches, but fossil dragonflies have been found with wingspans of up to two feet. Dragonflies, which eat insects as adults, are a great control on the mosquito population. A single dragonfly can eat 30 to hundreds of mosquitoes per day....So save the dragonflies!

Harvestman - Harvestmen are arachnids, but they are not spiders -- in the same way that butterflies are insects, but they are not beetles. Harvestmen have one body section (spiders have two), two eyes on a little bump (most spiders have eight), a segmented abdomen (unsegmented in spiders), no silk, no venom, a totally different respiratory system, and many other differences; not all have long legs...And they have NO venom.

Zebra Spider - The zebra spider is a common household jumping spider. Like other jumping spiders, it does not build a web. It uses its four pairs of large eyes to locate prey and its jumping ability to pounce and capture it. Zebra spiders are often noted for their awareness of humans. Upon noticing someone observing them, they can be seen raising their head, and usually change behavior.

Bees use a language of smells and dance to communicate with each other about the location of food. When bees have found a suitable source of nectar and pollen they return to the nest and perform what appears to be a most curious dance which informs other bees that the dancing bee knows where pollen and nectar can be obtained. The liveliness of the dance gives information concerning the amount, and scent on the dancing bee informs the other bees about the type of flower.
