      I think about the same time we got our Collie.  Maybe not all insects but for sure ticks and fleas.

      Insects appear on earth some 400 million years ago - Devonian period.  This was based on fossil records.

      Not all insects are harmful to humans.  There are lots of beneficial insects wink

      At least it's one point of view. The article suggests (tentatively) an evolutionary connection with crustaceans, however, due to most insects ephemeral nature, not many fossils records remain.
      Be careful when trying to pinpoint the time period in which insects first appeared as not even entomologists agree on this. Definitely a worthy field of study. As a fairly new species on the planet (when compared to the others) we could learn a lot from some of the most successful & enduring.

      Insects are the direct descendents of primordial slime I think.
