Hey YouTube, Jim here! Welcome to Top10Archive! Many of us likely look at bugs as being beneath us. They fly around, intrude in on our space, and just seem to be aimless in their purpose. The fact of the matter is, though, that some insects deserve a lot more credit. So we’re putting on our entomologist hats to explore the world of creepy crawlies to find the top ten most intuitive, crafty, mentally advanced, and, dare we say, intelligent insects in the world.

    • Top 10 Archive , as a kid I was attracted to honey bees but it really didn’t work out so well, I would always hear my gf tell me I was as sweet as honey, so of course I had to follow a honey bee back to its hive, big mistake trying to steal their honey for my gf, we where 7 years old at the time and she promised me a kiss if I brought back some honey to her, OUCH !!! Lesson learned, I should have went to the grocery store and lied to her but I didn’t get the nickname “Honest Jim” because I wanted to be a politician as a kid, you know like “Honest Abe” !
      Oh well I wasn’t able to talk for several days and Jenny said I sounded better that way !!!

  2. Yes thumbs up for sure ! I knew that the termites got be intelligent creatures but ants are smarter was surprise. Dragonfly is just awesome 97% woah ! I have new appreciation for bees now ! Thanks I feel smarter ! 😀

  3. I love insects! They’re so fascinating! I remember when I was a kid I’d spend all day outside catching insects! I’d get a soda/water bottle and I would fill it with dirt and grass and various twigs and rocks and then I’d fill it with random insects! Of course I DID release them at the end of the day. I really enjoyed looking at them interact with one another close-up. :3

    • MANNY~EmberDim I did the same thing! I actually caught and housed a praying mantis for over a year, here about 4 years ago. I still have video of her somewhere.. she grew to be nearly 7 inches standing up! She would eat about 10 crickets a day too..
