"What Am I?" Riddles

Here are a few riddles. They all are based on the theme "What am I?" I would like to add to this collection, so if you have a good one, and want to help, send it to me (see the contact page).


I am an insect, and the first half of my name reveals another insect. Some famous musicians had a name similar to mine. What am I?


My life can be measured in hours,
I serve by being devoured.
Thin, I am quick
Fat, I am slow
Wind is my foe.
What am I?


I have three letters, and I read the same forward and backwards. I rhyme with a word that is important to everyone. What word am I?


I am a three digit number. My second digit is four times more than my third digit. My first digit is seven less than my second digit. What number am I?


1. I am a beetle.

2. A candle.

3. Eye (rhymes with "I".)

4. 182

(Okay, that last one isn't a traditional what am I riddle, but I wanted to throw in one math riddle anyhow)
