Welcome to the world of ‘water bugs,' including dragonflies and damselflies, beetles, water striders, and more. While some spend nearly their entire lives in the water, others begin their lives as aquatic nymphs or spend their time gliding atop the water's surface. Whichever the case, many types of insects depend on freshwater habitats like ponds and streams throughout their lifetimes. Learn about the unique behavior and life history of aquatic insects, how to identify those commonly found in New England, and why wetlands and clean water are so important to these fascinating creatures.
