Cool Spots imageFrom roaches to termites, bugs are the creepy-crawlers we love to hate. But are they really so bad? It all depends. Get the complete story at Orkin's Dangerous Insects, a buggy Web site with all kinds of information on those icky pests. Proceed with caution to www.orkin.com/learningcenter/kids_and_teachers.aspx and learn about everything from bee stings and Lyme's disease to the bite of the bullet ant. Did you know that an adult tick can live more than 500 days without a meal? Or that house flies are considered a greater threat to human health than most other insects?

Or take a stroll with the black widow spider as she builds her nest. Just remember not to fall for the charm of the kissing bug-it's known to bite humans as they sleep.
