"In America the cicadas have the general name of <em>Harvest-flies</em>; they are also often improperly called <em>Locusts</em>. There are several species, one of which, the Red-eyed cicada, <em>C. septendicim</em>, is remarkable on account of the popular notion that it appears only once in seventeen years, in the same locality, being supposed to pass the interval in its preparatory stages." &mdash; Goodrich, 1859

Also known as the Seventeen-Year Locust, derives its specific name from the fact that it makes its appearance in certain districts at stated intervals of seventeen years in immense numbers, when the millions of them, swarming on the forest and fruit trees, almost deafen the observer with their trilling calls to the female, and form an abundant feast to the swine, fowls, and wild animals on the land, and if near a river or lake, to the fishes in the water.

An illustration of Cochineal living on cactus. Cochineal is the name of both crimson or carmine dye and the cochineal insect (Dactylopius coccus), a scale insect in the suborder Sternorrhyncha, from which the dye is derived. This type of insect, a primarily sessile parasite, lives on cacti from the genus Opuntia, feeding on moisture and nutrients in the cacti. The insect produces carminic acid which deters predation by other insects. Carminic acid can be extracted from the insect's body and eggs to make the dye. Cochineal is primarily used as a food colouring and for cosmetics.

An illustration of a cockchafer. The cockchafer (colloquially called may bug, billy witch, or spang beetle, particularly in East Anglia) is a European beetle of the genus Melolontha, in the family Scarabaeidae. Once abundant throughout Europe and a major pest in the periodical years of "mass flight", it had been nearly iradicated in the middle of the 20th century through extensive use of pesticides and has even been locally exterminated in many regions. However, since a change in pest control beginning in the 1980s, its numbers have started to grow again. As they don't tolerate pollution well, their presence is usually a marker of low pollution levels.

Cockroaches or roaches are insects of the order Blattaria. This name derives from the Latin word for "cockroach", blatta. Cockroaches live in a wide range of environments around the world. Pest species of cockroaches adapt readily to a variety of environments, but prefer warm conditions found within buildings. Many tropical species prefer even warmer environments and do not fare well in the average household. Roaches are not able to survive in moist areas such as bathrooms and are not able to exit such areas. This diagram shows a dissection of a cockroach with particular note of the allmentary canal (al).
