Always a favourite with guests and school groups, stick bugs are very cool insects. Stick bugs are usually found in tropical and subtropical climates lazing around with other non insect sticks. They are excellent at camouflage and are sometimes referred to as ghost insects. Try playing hide and seek with them when you visit them in their habitat. If they think you are a predator, they may ‘play dead’ by dropping from their perch and staying still; a behaviour that fools predators. Because they can lay up to 300 eggs a year without the help of males and they can eat immense amounts of food, they are a danger to our local ecosystem. Not native to BC, we accept surrendered Stick bugs to protect our local ecosystem from this very successful insect.
