The Insectrox are an insectoid species controlled by the Grox and are used in the conquering of planets. They resemble cybernetic Splodies. They are produced in low numbers by infection pods launched by the Grox. The Insectrox fight along-side Dronox and Mites.
Mites are smaller, spider-like creatures that carry bombs towards the player, and only the player, so they get quite annoying. However, the player can lure them into enemy troops so that the suicide blast effects the enemy as well. It is possible that they are a weaker form of Insectrox.
