Antenna or Antennae?

That was the question!  I am working on a bug unit for my class for you TpT followers.  I was creating an anchor chart to label parts of an insect.  I got to the head and wondered antennas or antennae?  I figured it was antennae, but to be sure I Googled it.  Indeed it was antennae!  Here is what I learned:  

Think of antenna as a type of receiver for a tv, radio, etc.  
If you are speaking of a bug, the singular form would be antenna, but the plural form is antennae (not antennas).
There you mini lesson for the night. 
I apologize in advance for any dreams about bed bugs tonight.  YUCK!
