How Many Insects Are There for Every Person On Earth?

One estimate pegs the number at about 10,000 bugs for every human being, which comes as no surprise to anyone who goes outside on a hot summer night.

Others say that estimate is way too low.

Over 1.5 million known insect species populate the world today, but entomologists believe there may be millions more out there waiting to be discovered and classified.

This doesn’t include the animals in the ocean we have not discovered.

    Definitely way too low… with ants alone it’s estimated that there are nearly 1 million per person on earth.
