Our Insects at Work
Check out our amazing insects up close!
In 2014 Sam Droege of the USGS Bee Inventory and Monitoring Lab worked on a series of macro-photography images for National Geographic featuring several of our lepidopteran species. See more of Sam's work here.
In 2017 researchers John Orrock, Brian Connolly, and Anthony Kitchen from the University of Wisconsin-Madison published a fascinating study in Nature Ecology & Evolution using Spodoptera exigua from Benzon Research.
It is eerily amazing to see normally non-cannibalistic larvae turn on each other so quickly when stressed! Their study was highlighted in The New York Times.
