Brazil is famous for its insect diversity. Some visitors to the world cup have received an warm welcome from the insect world.

Nando Muslera, goalie for the Uraguay national team had difficulties keeping ants out of his training camp bed. He tweets,

Buen diaaaaa!!! Miren quien nos despertó a las 2 am!!! Ajaja nada mejor que un buen anti alérgico!!

“It was funny more than anything else, Bbut it was fine. The staff came straight away and changed the sheets and we slept well.”

Seth Rosenthal of ESPN was joined in his broadcast by a couple of insects that alit on his mike and shoulder. I am not sure what they are. A closeup would help.
