Insects are animals in the class Insecta with six legs, two antennae, and three body segments-a head, thorax, and abdomen. Flying insects can include flies, butterflies, wasps, bees, grasshoppers, and beetles. On the other hand, true bugs are a specific type of insect. They belong to the order Hemiptera.

The primary difference between bugs and insects is that bugs suck juices from plants. They use their straw-shaped mouth to pierce plants and feed on sap, juices, or other insects. Examples of true bugs include stink bugs, aphids, whiteflies, water bugs, and bed bugs.
