Curiosities: Do insects have nose?

By Eddy Montilla

No. We need air into the lungs to live and our nose does a great job about it by letting oxygen intake. Insects have a different breathing system. That does not mean, however, they do not breathe, but instead of the typical nose and snout that humans and some animals have, insects have openings called spiracles doing the same function by letting the entrance of air. Besides, insects usually use their feelers to “smell” and sometimes, hair that grows upon their bodies.
