Being tiny doesn’t stop viruses, bacteria, certain insects and other microscopic critters from causing all sorts of misery. But under the microscope, we can see them for what they truly are. This image, made using a scanning electron microscope, shows the free-swimming protozoan Giardia, which causes diarrhea and other symptoms when it infects the small intestine, often as a result of contaminated drinking water.

Ebola

This insect was found dead in the suburbs of Decatur, Ga., and was missing a number of its body parts, including its antennae and most of its legs, when this image was made.

This image from 2005 shows virus particles from the 1918 flu virus, which scientists sequenced and then recreated. These particles were collected from an infected cell culture made of dog’s kidney cells. The Spanish flu of 1918 killed more than 500,000 people in the United States and up to 50 million worldwide, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

H5N1 Flu Virus Infection

A Flea

Fleas, like this one, carry many diseases that can infect humans when fleas bite. Not least among these diseases is plague, caused by the bacterium Yersinia pestis, which is blamed for causing the Black Death in Europe.

A bedbug, as seen under a scanning electron microscope. The insect’s blood-sucking mouthparts show up in purple. Although bedbugs live on blood, there is no evidence they can effectively spread blood-borne disease. Aside from the stigma associated with them, the biggest problem with bedbugs is the allergic reaction their saliva can induce in humans.

Bedbug Eye
