You will get life size with Canons 100 mm 2.8 it's a super lens very well rated .Also doubles up as a good portrait lens.
100mm also gives you a greater working distance from your subject.Any self respecting insect will have cleared off if you go for a shorter focal length.
Though I personally have not been able to justify the cost ringflash would be handy.
Another cheaper lens is Tamrons 90mm macro that is also very highly rated.
