Their taste sensors are located on the bottom of their legs, more precisely on their tarsi. This is also the case with the bee and the fly. They have a sensitivity 2000 times higher than that of the tongue in humans. Olfactory organs are also found on their antennae, and they allow them to locate the scented messages of a female to 10 kilometers around, in some species.
Their average lifespan is 20 to 40 days, and some species can live up to 10 months.
