Many animals commonly considered bugs or creepy-crawlies are not insects, and can be identified by having more or less than six legs.

Another good rule: If it has wings and is not a bat or a bird, it is an insect.

Larvae of some insect orders, like caterpillars or maggots, sometimes do not look much like insects, but they are.
