how do i know that an organism is an insect



  1. 0 Votes

    Insects always have 6 legs. This is a great way to tell if an organism is an insect. Another way to tell if an insect is an adult is if it has wings. Immature insects do not have wings, however, so checking for 6 legs is the best way to tell. Insects also typically have 3 body segments: a head, thorax, and abdomen. You may have to flip an insect over to see if it has all three, since segments can be covered by wings.
