Like most boys and girls, in childhood, with the help of a set, I hunted for a wide variety of insects. Of course, the most frequent and ordinary trophies for us, 7-10 year old researchers, were the beauties of the butterfly – especially the mahaons or nymphalids, and catching the elusive dragonfly was just great happiness ! That’s just when, by negligence and inexperience, we took them by the tail, they certainly, bending, better than any acrobat, bit by the finger. True, the teeth of these small predators were unable to bite the skin, and therefore, there were no particularly unpleasant sensations.
Most importantly, at the same time, not to damage her delicate wings, because the joy turned out to be too fleeting, if the data of small helicopters could no longer rise and fly away to the sun with a quiet chatter.
Hehe, and bit me :). As a child, I spent the holidays in the country, I really liked to catch butterflies, look at the patterns on their wings. At some point, I was tired of hunting with a clock and I began to catch insects with my bare hands (even bumblebees). And, of course, the highest aerobatics is to catch a dragonfly without a set. You will sneak, crawl – and do not breathe :). Once I covered a dragonfly with a hand and she bit me. It seems that there was no trace on the arm, but for a long time I remembered this bite, some kind of very piercing, or something (I can’t choose a word).
I did not feel it, however, I remember very well when I studied at school, my neighbor, a boy of 10 years old, caught a large dragonfly with a net. He picked her in his hands, and, Dragonfly, without thinking twice, saving his life, faded him by the finger. He screamed that the dragonfly bit him and let her go from surprise. True, then he admitted that it was not very painful, just a dragonfly found him by surprise.
If the dragonflies bite like bees or wasps, then I think everyone would know about this. But still they bite. It just doesn’t hurt. They are small and sting or teeth they have no. Moreover, it is better not to offend defenseless insects 🙂
Dragonflies are not dangerous for humans. The structure of her mouth does not allow people to bite. The only ones she can eat is very small insects. There are rare cases when a dragonfly feeling a threat is enough for a person for the skin, but this happens so weakly that no sensations causes.
The dragonfly really bites. But the other question is that it bites solely in those cases when it feels a danger. And so the structure of her mouth is such that she cannot bite very much and it is unlikely that you will feel pain from her bite.
Dragonfly – a harmless insect, and it destroys small harmful ‘bugs’. A DROGRAMENT man can neither bite nor sting. The fact is her Jaws adapted only for eating small insects, and it cannot bite the skin of a person.
True, with a threat of life, a dragonfly can Try to bite a person, But this is not a bite, but jaws squeezing. There are no traces after that, and the pain is very weak and immediately passes.
In general, dragonflies are able to bite, for some reason they often even love it, of course it is not so painful as the bite of muskh or mosquito, since they do not eat blood, but it is better not to plant large dragonflies on sensitive parts of the body, for example, for, for examplethey will not bite much
Yes, but very poison.Although the teeth are big
Dragonflies have a mouth and even a semblance of teeth, it is theoretically and can bite a person. Yes, only her jaws and teeth are not able to bite human skin (except that we are talking about very large individuals). And she will only bite if she grabbed her with her hand, she just won’t attack.
So do not be scared if she just sat on the skin – it will not bite 100%.
They bite, if we take it purely theoretically and proceeds from the fact that they have both a mouth and a kind of dragonfly teeth. However, human skin is stronger and thicker than how much they can bite, and therefore we are people, we do not feel pain from their bites.
