Caption

Scale insect. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a female scale insect (superfamily Coccoidea), showing its shield-like exoskeleton (strong and rigid outer skeleton) and antennae (lower left). Scale insects are plant parasites that feed on sap from the host plant. They secrete a waxy coating on their exoskeleton to protect themselves from pesticides and predators.
