Scientists were not sure if an adult butterfly could remember things it learned as a caterpillar. Then a study by a team of US scientists found something very interesting.
Pollination by commercially raised bees is important to a variety of crops but none more than California almonds. In turn, beekeepers depend on them.
They're just one of many insects facing dramatic population decline.
If the insect wants to stay right in front of your nose, it must fly forwards just a little bit when the car is speeding up. But when the car is at constant speed, it only needs to hover.
An AC/DC-loving biologist tests the band's 1980 assertion that "rock 'n' roll ain't noise pollution." Turns out it can be – and the negative effects of noise can ripple through an ecosystem.
Stick insects may be using birds to disperse their eggs, just as plant do.
Mosquito abundance is linked to climate and weather, and global climate change may be helping spread these dangerous carriers of disease.
Up to half of insect sex can involve two males but our study suggests it's probably less design and more a case of mistaken identity.
Footballers came under attack from a swarm of flies on the Volgograd pitch. But there's more to midges and gnats than meets the eye.
The work honey bees do is critical for our ecosystems, but it comes at a high personal cost.
New study shows parasitic Escovopsis fungus attacks the bacteria leafcutter ants use to protect themselves.
Insects aren't known for having big brains, and slime moulds and fungi don't have any. So how do they solve challenges that test the ingenuity of human transport engineers?
Many fruits, nuts and other crops rely on bees to pollinate their flowers at just the right time of year. Many farmers rent bees to get the job done at pollination time.
Aphids often appear in swarms around May and June but what risk do they pose to plants?
Not all bugs are bad! Put down the pesticides and get to know the predators and parasites hidden around you.
The Fall armyworm will remain in Africa for a long time unless concerted action is taken.
An invasive insect native to Asia, Halyomorpha halys, has been detected in the US, Canada and southern Europe. It’s now made its debut in Paris.
Those "itchy bites" are actually reactions to mozzie spit.
Honeybees are responsible for only a third of crop pollination in Britain.
We're in the middle of an Insectageddon. But a garden of native plants can help insects, as well as birds and other wildlife.
