Octagons do not make a neat repeating pattern when placed next to each other. Hexagons do make a perfect pattern called a tessellation. To make a continuous grid that includes octagons, you would need to incorporate squares and triangles to fill all the holes in between the octagons. It is much easier for almost brainless insects to make a pattern that is only a single repeating shape than to have to remember how to organize several different shapes.
