Do they bite?

Chan S.

Honestly, I don't know. I never got bit by any damselflies I handled when I was a kid. I'm pretty confident that a dragonfly would not bite in aggression--what I don't know is whether it would bite when threatened or frightened.


Help! A dragonfly flew into our hallway light. I got him out and put a little cool water on his feet and he drank some. He hasn,t moved much and my little girl wants him to live! Help!What else can i do?

Oh, no! I don't know a thing about healing injured insects. I would think that keeping it outside would be better so that it could return to its habitat if it's able to heal on its own. I hope the dragonfly makes it.
