Remove a letter from each of the words below and rearrange the remaining letters to form new words. The 10 words will all fall into a certain category. For example, given the words DEAR, ANGRY, and RENEGE, you could drop the "A" in DEAR to get RED, drop the "N" in ANGRY to get GRAY, and drop an "E" in RENEGE to get GREEN. These would all fall into the category of "Colors".
If you're stuck, the hint will name the category. The tough part is getting all 10 words.

The category is "Insects".

I got the first four and then quit as it was too time consuming and past my bedtime. Good one though. I saw right away it was insects, but too many to keep going. Fun while it lasted.Sorry!

Once I figured out it was bugs, it was fairly easy.

Was really off my game today. I rarely look at the hint, but needed it this morning. As others have said, once I knew the category the rest was pretty easy.
