Daily Science Fact: What is the longest living insect pet?

Wednesday, December 23, 2020

 Many people enjoy Tarantulas as pets. Technically Tarantulas are arachnids and not insects. They do live 10 to 30 years which is a long time for an organism with an exoskeleton. 


Honey bees are also popular for people to keep around the house but they only live 125 to 130 days.

Some beetles live for 30 years but I don't know many people who keep them as pets.

Ant queens can live 50 to maybe 100 years and many people enjoy ant farms so I will declare the Ant Queen the winner of the longest living insect pet.
