Yes, I would say that insects have a limited intelligence. Why not?
And I imagine they also have a limited consciousness.

That's my personal feeling too. Recently I have updated the arachnid an octopus in the Löbian (self-conscious) class of entity.

I came to that possible conclusion by looking at video like this, and then making some experiment with spider myself:


It is not the move the spider, but its apparent induction that there is a spider behind the mirror, and its apparent shock discovering there is none.

Take this with some grain on salt, but in matter of consciousness I prefer to attribute too much than not enough.
