i know large ground mounts wont be that usable because there's no roads and that a lot of people want things to ride so they're mainly going to be smaller mounts or air/water mounts 

1. Gerridae also known as water skimmers : could be used/tamed on the pond area and used like jet skis to get across the pond quickly with the ability to jump and glide out of the water considering some species can fly and some can't so its an equal balance of both and not so overpowered by being able to fully fly as well, there could also be an area near the pond where there's oil on the surface what they could skim across which is slower to swim through and harder to get air if u go beneath with a dark underwater area underneath that leads to a new late game area with better resources and maybe a boss fight like cave dwellers such as tailless whip scorpions. They could be tamed by feeding them certain insect parts that you have obtained with the harder items to obtain being the ones that fill up its taming bar the quickest like ant eggs or spider parts and the more easier insect parts taking longer like having to use 50 gnats or mites instead of like 10/15 spider parts on the other hand they could also be killed and farmed for resources 

2. fruit flies : these could be used as a more early game way of transportation being worn like a backpack and just having the ability to rise up into the air and glide back down kind of like a jetpack and just make the fly look like its tired out from carrying you as a reasoning to why it cant just constantly fly around like a regular fly they're also considerably small flies so the scaling to the player shouldn't be bad. They could either be found ; near the bushes (rotting berries), near the garbage heap ( rotting food/ fruit), or in a location with a grow bed with vegetables like tomato plants on the decaying fallen fruit.

3. dragonflies : they could be spotted near the pond are and could be a more aggressive tame where you have to bola its wings or knock it out to be able to tame with the ability to break out of bolas so it could be a more tanky/ boss like insect where it could be fought and killed to be obtained to make dragonfly armour that has wings so you can glide without a mount when you have the full set and the goggles could be used to give you better accuracy when above an enemy. they could also have a fuel system where you have to keep putting insect parts on a rope that's dangling in front of it that's attached to the saddle to keep it in flight 

4. tadpoles/frogs : i know they're already in the game but they could be used as a quicker way to get around under the water kind of like a little underwater propeller. They could also develop into different stages of a tadpoles lifecycle developing different things such as ; developing back legs after being fed a certain amount and having the ability to swim a bit faster, developing both sets of legs so it can go on land for a small period of time before having to go back in the water and fully developing into a frog that gives it the ability to fully go on land and jump from place to place like a 10/15 meter jump or cm in game with a tongue that does a small amount of damage and can pull items/ insects closer with the ability to go fully underwater as well. with a small amount of health compared to the other creatures 

5. praying mantis : this could be an insect that is located inside the house in a terrarium that's kept as a pet that can be fought as a boss and obtain items like its front legs that could be used to craft a scythe that could be used to chop resources faster or a katana that does good cutting damage and strikes fast with armour that looks kind of like a samurai with a praying mantis Hannya mask to fit the praying mantis' origins that does increased striking speed when paired with the katana and full set of armour. The mantis could also be used as a good tame to gather resources like grass and weeds with and clear out areas of grass more efficiently with decent damage against other mobs like spiders with its front arms and the ability to pick up and bite/carry other smaller insects like ants.

6. Pholcidae also known as daddy long legs: this could tame that could be worn like a backpack like the fruit fly but instead its arms attach to the walls of main structures like the house walls the oak trees trunk, the branches inside the bush area, the bench etc. kind of like doctor octopus from spiderman but it tires out after a small amount of time with the ability to upgrade its stamina so you can climb bigger surfaces this would give you the ability to get up to the areas like the upper floor of the house so you can enter through a window and the canopy of the oak tree. it would be found either crawling around the garden on its own or on a hive somewhere. 

7. jumping spider : these are necessarily small spiders so they could be used as a tame that you wear on your wrist or back more like a grappling hook that you can swing with than an actual rideable creature they could also be fed string to actually be able to use considering most actual spiders eat there own webs to make them again anyway. they could be found hopping around in the garden mainly higher up on the grass or walls tho 

8. bullet ant : these could be an aggressive tame that does large amounts of damage to players and other insects that can be tamed after killing the queen located in an artificial ant farm inside the house. There could also be other variants of them like fire ants that do less damage but leave a burn affect and live in a more hostile area or normal ants that just do a standard amount of damage with the ability to carry materials. all of them being mainly PvE mounts to attack other insects 

9. remote control helicopter / car : these could be  found inside the house and used to get around on the inside quicker without the ability to bring them outside because of the size and inside would have a lot more flat areas for them to be able to work correctly there could even be a small sub or scuba toy that u can use in the drains of the baths, sinks and toilets to move around quicker and discover other areas or secret areas   

10. this one isn't a build just a suggestion for an insect : this could be a mutant/ hybrid insect found in a lab inside a room of the house where all of the other insects and areas are kept inside all of there terrariums used by the scientist who shrunk everyone. this could have the abilities of other insects so it can jump like a frog, chop and grab with its arms like a mantis, sting with its tail like a scorpion or just with a stinger like a bee and a bite attack like a spider this could be a very very end game boss that comes just before completion
