There is no straightforward answer to this question as there are many exceptions in the insect’s world. But there are some features that most insects possess. 

They are dominating this planet.

Yes, this is true. Insects are the largest and most diverse group of animals on the planet. Nearly 75% of all the animal species so far described are insects. They are the only invertebrates that can fly and were the first animals to evolve flight.
