Whether you think they're gross or not, insects are fascinating—even life-saving—creatures. For example, ants can be used as stitches. The ant can bite the edges of a cut, locking its mandibles to seal the wound like a stitch. The ant may then be removed from its mandibles, which will stay in place for days as the wound heals.
