Bugs (Order — Hemiptera)

(Sub-order Heteroptera; sub-order Homiptera)

In this Order all species have a sharp, piercing rostrum with which they suck sap or animal juices. The order includes Heteroptera — the 'True Bugs', and Homoptera — the 'other' bugs; these are sometimes treated as separate groups.
