The common European Cleg is a large, black/blue-black blood-sucking 'horsefly' of the family Tabanidae. It is commonly referred to as a Gadfly in the United States. They are powerful flyers, and the females are furnished with a lancet-like proboscis which can pierce the thickest skin.

Crickets, family Gryllidae (also known as "true crickets"), are insects somewhat related to grasshoppers and more closely related to katydids or bush crickets (family Tettigoniidae). They have somewhat flattened bodies and long antennae. There are about 900 species of crickets. They tend to be nocturnal and are often confused with grasshoppers because they have a similar body structure including jumping hind legs.

A grape-vine leaf gall-louse. The insect forms galls on the under side of the grape-vine leaves, and although they appear to do comparatively little injury to the vine, they are extremely interesting to vine-growers.

The hessian fly or barley midge, Mayetiola destructor, is a species of fly that is a significant pest of cereal crops including wheat, barley and rye. Though a native of Asia it was transported into Europe and later into North America, supposedly in the straw bedding of Hessian troops during the American Revolution (1775–83). There are usually two generations a year but may be up to five. In the spring the dark-coloured female lays about 250 to 300 reddish eggs on plants, usually where the stems are covered by leaves; the larvae feed on the sap and weaken the plants so that they cannot bear grain.

A gadfly, or Bot-fly, that lays its eggs on horses. After these eggs hatch on the skin, the larvae bore into the skin and create tumors ('warbles') beneath it. When fully fed, they leave their host and drop to the ground, bury themselves, and, after pupation, emerge as flies. This illustration is enlarged, and also shows the larvae.

"This term, from the latting <em>gala</em>, the oak-apple, and <em>colo</em>, to inhabit, is applied to a tribe of insects which are almost exclusively vegetable feeders, which includes the well-known Gall-Insect, <em>Cynips gallae tinctoriae</em>. The females of these punture the leaves, buds, and other parts of plants and trees, depositing an egg in the wound, accompanied probably by some irritiating fluid, which causes a diseased growth in the part, and thus produces the excrescences known as <em>galls</em>." &mdash; Goodrich, 1859

Gooseberry Caterpillar is the name applied to the larvæ of two different insects, both injurious to gooseberry and currant bushes. (1) the Magpie Moth (Abraxas grossulariata), appearing about midsummer, has usually a black head, yellow body, and white wings spotted  with black. (2) More destructive than the above is the larva of the Gooseberry Sawfly (Nematus ribesii), which plays havoc with the leaves of bushes. The larva is bluish green, with lack head, feet, tail, and spots, with twenty feet, and a length of about 3/4 of an inch when full grown.
