The Kansas State University Insect Zoo has long been an on-campus attraction, but a student entomology club’s efforts to create virtual engagement opportunities during the COVID-19 pandemic have built a new model for outreach that continues to spread the educational value of the Insect Zoo far and wide.
With striking high-speed video footage, scientists have for the first time detailed how predatory mosquito larvae attack and capture prey in aquatic habitats. Published this week in the Annals of the Entomological Society of America, this new research sheds light on behavior that has long proven too small and too fast to study, until now.
Tick researchers in Connecticut turn their eye toward their local community with an educational film series about backyard tick management. Learn how the project came together and why it could be a useful model for other entomology-outreach efforts.
Digital video data—more than 20,000 hours' worth—reveals why cone traps are more effective than bucket traps in capturing palm weevils.
