What a week. I have been stuck in management meetings most of the week, which weren’t bad, just very very long. Which means I haven’t been following much news, certainly didn’t get any posts out, and have barely logged onto facebook. But I did get to hang with some great people over the week. I was going to skip doing this week’s friday favorites, but I have had a few minutes to go through some stuff and of course, found some entomological awesomeness! So here you go:
- Tons of new species! – One of the things that is great about entomology is that they are always describing new species (how many new mammals do they find every year?).
- Bug highway – just cool.
- Getting specific w managing insects – Insect growth regulators have been around for years to specifically target juvenile hormone levels, but now scientists are looking at the exoskeleton on a molecular level which could one day lead to better, more targeted insecticides.
I am headed to Austin next week (yes!) for a couple of conferences and I will try to post more. Until then, share the entomological awesomeness!
Okay, one more. I know I posted this on facebook earlier, but it is just too entomologically awesome not to post again:
