Be afraid: insects outnumber humans 200 million to one. Narrator Martin Sheen explains why bugs don't grow big, how crickets hear with their knees, and why the termite queen doesn't wander far from her 5 million subjects and her eight-foot-high skyscraper palace. (As it turns out, she's busy laying 30,000 eggs a day!) This program surveys everything from insect morphology to insect mythology.
