Insects do have a liquid "plasma" that carries nutrients around their bodies, and also wastes to the appropriate area for erradication from the body.

But they do not have red blood cells as vertebrates do, which carries oxygen from the lungs to the other parts of the body.

If hurt, some of this plasma will ooze from the wound.
