Download and install one of these apps to add insects or bugs to your desktop.
You can stop the app or add more bugs by right-clicking on its icon in the notification area by clock on the task bar.
They fly / crawl over any open applications you are using so too many can get annoying.
Clicking on a bug will make it freeze for 10 seconds. if you right click the apps icon in notification area by clock, you can select 'Settings' and stop the bugs from always being on top and keep them to desktop only, and also stop the app running at startup which is the default setting.
These are ideal apps for playing pranks on your mates.. because they run at startup,, so you can install it and wait tell your mate powers up the pc, i would also go into the settings and set the bug count to something like 20 or 30 so screen is covered in them crawling around....
On testing, these apps had high CPU usage for some reason, so best used for pranking and not long term desktop additions unless you have a good spec computer.
