Picture This #183 - THE FIVE SENSES
Also insects have sense organs...
Adults and nymps of insects have two compound eyes and up to three simple eyes on their head. Insects with large compound eyes have a wide field of view of 360 degrees...
The bodies of insects are covered with sensitive hairs. These are most numerous and most sensitive on parts such as the antennae (feelers) and on the lower sections of the legs.
The taste receptors occur mainly in the mouth and on the mouthparts, the antennae, and the lower parts of the legs of many insects. Insects can literally taste with their feet!
