When British scientist Jason Chapman told us… there are 3 billion insects passing over your head in a summer month, he was talking about his survey in Great Britain. Closer to the equator, he says, the numbers should rise. He wouldn’t be surprised, for example, that in the sky over Houston or New Orleans there could be 6 billion critters passing overhead in a month.

Three billion insects??? The kid should see this! Then watch more videos from NPR and more bugs of all kinds.
