- "There are insects everywhere, here. They're brilliant. Other than all the biting and the stinging. That's a bit annoying."
- ―Milo Graf
Insects (also called bugs) were a class of arthropods exemplified by the can-cell, Thunian wart-hornet, rot-wing, and Vashkan apidactyl species. They were characterized by a segmented body with six limbs. Other possible characteristics included wings, compound eyes, and probosces. At least some insects fed off the watery fluid circulating through plants.
In certain species, bites or stings could occur when an insect became agitated and sought to defend itself through natural defense mechanisms. In some case, said bites or stingings were mere annoyances, but in others, they could be lethal.
Species with features reminiscent of insects were referred to as "insectoid", "insect-like," or "insectile". Such species included the Geonosians, the Culisetto, the Melitto, the lyleks, and the gutkurrs.
