index / Balance of nature Insects
Insects first evolved 350 million years ago, and with over one million species constitute five sixths of all living creatures.

When God created the world and the living species upon it, He devoted most time to insects. These tiny creatures are masterpieces of ingenuity, possessing strength and beauty quite out of proportion to their size. They easily escape attention, but once examined closely their exquisite detail, colours and diversity are astonishing. Some of them can produce a drop of poison invisible to the naked eye but capable of instantly killing creatures thousands of times larger than themselves. Insects were first created 350 million years ago, and over a million species have so far been identified, constituting no less than five sixths of all living creatures.
