- Bugscope Team sample is pumping down
- Bugscope Team Hi Nicole!
- Bugscope Team Welcome to Bugscope!
- Guest how long is this session going to last?
- Bugscope Team it will run from 3:45 to 4:45; it's 3:15 here
- Guest where were these samples collected from?
- Bugscope Team some came from Arizona, some from my back porch
- Bugscope Team toward the end of the winter we are often poorly stocked
- Bugscope Team now it's easier to get samples
- Guest what's the most interesting bug you have ever collected?
- Bugscope Team I like weevils, earwigs because they often have mites, leadfhoppers. Scorpions are interesting.
- Bugscope Team leafhoppers, that is. also ticks are pretty cool
- Bugscope Team ticks usually have bacteria on them
- Guest why do scorpions kill themselves with their own stingers?
Bugscope Team I wasn't aware of that, I'm sorry; maybe a relationship gone bad?
- Bugscope Team the venom does not affect them
- Bugscope Team yeah if they are like spiders -- spiders inject venom into their prey that dissolves the inner organs, and then they suck it all back up again
- Bugscope Team this right here is interesting because we can see where dustmites have been chewing away the chitin on this cricket
- Bugscope Team scorpions are sensitive to heat. If they cannot escape it they may start panicking and start stinging themselves
- Guest oh that makes more sense:)
- Bugscope Team scorpions chew their food rather than swallowing it whole or sucking it up like a milkshake
- Guest everyone says flys live only a day is that true?
Bugscope Team most live for around a month, but there are probably some species that live for around that long
- Bugscope Team some flies, like mayflies, may live only a few hours, at least the males
- Bugscope Team Hi Tom!
- Bugscope Team Welcome to Bugscope!
- Guest why do they flys make a buzzing sound?
Bugscope Team that is from their wings flapping. they are resonating with the air
- Bugscope Team Tom we are ready to roll.
- Bugscope Team We can make a few more presets, but if you would like to drive please try it out
- Teacher we are watching. Students will log in at 3:40 if that is ok. Right now there are eoght of us
Bugscope Team no problem, of course
- Teacher We see a guest login but no "student" login at this time
Bugscope Team just use the guest login for students; for some reason student does not always come up as a choice
- Guest Hi My name is jessica. I am a student at Washington State Universtiy-tri cities. I do my student teaching in August
Bugscope Team Hi Jessica!
- Teacher OK. students will log in in two minutes.
- Bugscope Team Jessica if you think you'd like to use Bugscope in your student teaching, please apply soon. The fall is filling up. Choose a day, and secure a session with us, then when the time gets closer, you can ask us to change the day/time.
- Guest Hi im Aidan
- Guest Hi, I'm Bryce
- Bugscope Team Hi Aidan!
- Guest hi im nolan im a student at MSJH
- Bugscope Team Hi Bryce!
- Guest thanks for letting me join in and watch. I will keep that in mind :)
- Bugscope Team hi!
- Bugscope Team Hi Nolan!
- Guest Hey, I'm Shannon
- Guest Hi, I'm Harrison
- Bugscope Team Hi Shannon!
- Guest Hi, i'm Rebecca, i go to the MSJH School (7th )
- Bugscope Team Hello Harrison!
- Bugscope Team Rebecca! Yay!
- Guest I'm also from MSJH
- Guest MSJH means mahomet seymour junior high
Bugscope Team I wonder where that is?
- Guest I'm from MSJH (8th)
- Guest Me too, MSJH
- Guest I go to Mahomet Seymour too
Bugscope Team sweet!
- Guest Mahomet, IL
- Guest Hi, I'm jelli! I'm from Mahomet- Seymour Junior High
Bugscope Team Hello Jelli!
- Guest your names jelli! thats soo cool
- Guest hello! Im from msjh, Nolen`s place.
Bugscope Team Hi Evan!
- Guest its NOLAN with an A!
- Bugscope Team here is a silverfish. You might find them in your bathrooms
- Guest oh, sorry
- Guest its cool
- Guest cool!
- Guest Are those scales? Or just skin?
Bugscope Team they are definitely scales!
Bugscope Team Scales! Good call.
- Guest Has anyone made a life-size statue of him
- Guest That's what o thought
- Bugscope Team insects and other arthropods do not have skin -- they have an exoskeleton, which is like having a shell, like a shrimp
- Guest oh gosh yuck!
- Bugscope Team i think if i saw a human-sized insect I would turn the other way and run
- Guest i dont want to find one in my bathroom!
Bugscope Team Yo Dude you can save it for Bugscope!
- Guest Yeah thats a good plan
- Guest i like shrimp and it does need to shave
- Guest @EVAN agreed
- Guest whats the @ for
- Guest So why do they live in a bathroom
Bugscope Team they live on water, molds, sometimes glue in books...
- Guest Oh cool
- Guest Are they at all harmful?
- Guest yeah its a bug not a fish
- Guest whys it called thar
- Guest Why`s it called a silverfish?
Bugscope Team probably because they move like quicksilver and also reflect silver from their scales
- Guest no its an arthropod Nolan!
- Teacher Do't silverfish eat Paper? If so how dot the do it?
Bugscope Team they like sugars and starches. That includes cellulose, which paper is made from. They use their mandibles to chew the paper
- Guest i mean that not thar
- Bugscope Team they wiggle around when they move like a fish
- Guest Ohh
- Guest yes
- Guest i know isnt that a kind of bug
Bugscope Team yeah silverfish are insects
- Guest Hwta purpose do the hairs serve
- Guest Thank you
- Bugscope Team they are also called 'fishmoths'
- Guest Harrison means what
Bugscope Team son of Harris
- Guest @Harrison your welcomme
- Guest what do the hairs do
Bugscope Team the hairs, which are called setae (pronounced see-tee) allow the insect to sense what is going on around it. They can't feel things through their exoskeleton. That's what the hairs are for. They are similar to cat whiskers
- Guest Yes the most boring name ever
- Guest ohhh thats cool
- Guest flies do that too right?
- Guest Where`s its ears?
Bugscope Team most insects do not have ears, but they can sense vibration from the air, which is what sound is, using some of their setae
- Guest @ Scott Wish I could do that
- Guest If they like sugar and starch, why don't we find them in our kitchen
Bugscope Team they aren't just limited to bathrooms, that is just where I notice them the most, before I squish them.
- Guest i wish i could hear with my hairs
- Guest Do hairs regrow? It looks like some are missing
Bugscope Team if the insect or arthropod is going to molt, the setae will regrow, but often we are looking at adult end-stage insects
- Guest I mean now?
- Guest they look like feelers @bryce
- Guest Ohh
- Guest Whats that pic of mow?
Bugscope Team this is a live image from the scanning electron microscope; up 'til now no one from your school has tried driving
- Guest What are the pine cone type things
Bugscope Team those are called pulvilli- they are pads of special setae, called tenant setae, which allow the insect to walk on vertical surfaces
- Guest What are the claws used for since their microsopic
Bugscope Team same things we use our hands for- to hold onto things
- Guest cool!
- Guest thats how they climb walls @cate
- Guest They just hold onto microscopic things or walls
Bugscope Team the tenent setae are sticky and help flies, etc. cling to walls
- Guest What are the huge hairs for
Bugscope Team those are more mechanosensory- they tell the insect when they are touching something else
- Bugscope Team the tiny curved things we see now are tenent setae
- Teacher Harrison is going to try to drive.
- Bugscope Team they act like velcro or suction cups to the wall
- Guest That looks like a pinecone
Bugscope Team yes it does!
- Guest So the eyes are basically worthless, because they almost have no use at all?
Bugscope Team to many insects eyes are very important
- Teacher Harrison is going to drive
Bugscope Team Harrison is the supreme ruler
- Guest w
- Guest Are the claws like bird claws or reptile or what?
Bugscope Team i guess you could compare them to bird claws
- Guest the ears must have no use either
Bugscope Team they usually do not have ears, an exception being praying mantises, which are said to have one large central ear
- Guest @ Esem No I am!
Bugscope Team soon, Dude
- Bugscope Team here is a true bug with a long face
- Guest evan you are NOT the supreme ruler
- Bugscope Team the 2 bulbs on either side are the compound eyes
- Bugscope Team the part in the middle is the proboscis, which it uses to sip liquids
- Bugscope Team true bugs have piercing sucking mouthpars
- Bugscope Team mouthparts...
- Bugscope Team like this
- Guest Why is it called the assassin bug , not the vampire bug
- Guest Like blood?
Bugscope Team this is an assassin bug; it pierces other insects and drinks their hemolymph, which is insect blood
- Guest Propb, no Poro, Probisda, no...
Bugscope Team proboscis
- Guest Thats it!!
- Guest yeah duh evan
- Guest What is the long thing on top for
Bugscope Team part of what we see is the pumping mechanism for sucking up liquids
- Guest ahhh cool
- Guest gross.
- Bugscope Team the kissing bug and the bed bug are both true bugs as well, where they look similar to beetles, but have a long proboscis like this and they drink your blood
- Guest what are the round things underneath that look like cocconuts
- Guest Again, gross
- Guest Insect blood? what's the difference between human blood and insect blood? Besides the name of course
Bugscope Team I don't believe it carries oxygen like our blood does; often it is clear. our blood is red because it has iron in it, and the iron is what holds the oxygen atoms
- Guest OK thanks
- Guest cool
- Guest wouh
- Guest *for*
- Guest I get to drive! Hooray!
- Guest uh oh dont crash
- Guest !Aidandrive!
- Guest So what does it use to carry oxygen to different parts of its body fpr
Bugscope Team in insects you will see little ports on their sides, usually on their thorax or abdomen, and those are called spiracles. The spiracles are connected to a trachea that runs along the body, supplying oxygen
- Guest why do they suck blood why dont they eat like other bugs
Bugscope Team insects are opportunistic, and not wasteful; for some, other insects make good food
- Guest W
- Guest Looks like Epcot
- Guest oh i get it now
- Guest is that dust on the eye or some crazzzzzzy enzyme
- Bugscope Team we work with a parasitic wasp guy, and he told us there is a parasitic wasp for every insect and every life stage of insect
- Guest @ Nolen caps.
- Guest Do they have a protective covering or something over the eye? or is the eye itself scratched (at least it looks that way)
- Guest Now it's up close
- Guest its NOLAN with an A and its faster not to use caps @evan
- Teacher What does each hexagonal shape represent?
Bugscope Team those are the individual facets of the compound eye. They each can see an image. They are usually hexagonally shaped because that is the best shape to fit the curvature of something round
- Guest Why are they all in hexigon shapes
Bugscope Team that is the best way to stack round objects and form an overall spherical shape
- Guest oh that makes sence
- Guest what is a parasitic wasp?
Bugscope Team they are wasps that sting other insects, usually caterpillars, and lay their eggs inside them. The eggs then feed off the insides and eventually kill the caterpillar. Usually the wasps are good because they help control agricultural pest-type caterpillars
- Guest What is the confetti thing?
Bugscope Team that is some sort of debris, maybe some spider webbing
- Guest What you see on the screen is the width of our hair. That's tiny!
- Guest thats absolutely discusting but cool
- Guest @ Scot Whats parasitic mean?
Bugscope Team it means that it uses another insect to its advantage but does not contribute anything positive in the exchange
- Guest isnt a parasite like a disease?
Bugscope Team it means something is latched onto you, using up your nutrients.
- Guest oh ok like a leech @scot
- Guest so thats why its so hard to sneak up on one...
Bugscope Team compound eyes are very sensitive to changes in the visual field, i.e., motion
- Guest @ Scot Wow, bad trade
- Guest ohh I remember learning about parasitic now thanks
- Guest What are the white chunks?
Bugscope Team often it is some kind of dirt on the surface of the eye or exoskeleton
- Guest @Nolan i think later on in the year you will learn about like the relationship between parasite and host
- Guest Scot rules!
Bugscope Team Thanks, Even!
- Guest are the eyes protected?
Bugscope Team not really; they can get scratched up
- Guest i suppose
- Guest where do these live
Bugscope Team you can find them on plants. They live in this area, as well as a lot of other places in the US
- Guest @ harrison to nolan, i think you learn about it in 7th grade
- Guest ok i think i know what a host is @harrison
- Guest So can our eyes
Bugscope Team but insects do not have eyelids
- Guest Does these also come from Arizona, and ESEM's back porch, or some where else
- Bugscope Team ESEM is scot, he always has a couple different logins
- Guest do the scratches effect the bug very much? or does it not make that much of a difference since each eye has so many different perspectives
Bugscope Team hard to tell; eventually they would make it harder to see in one direction
- Guest yep I just learned about it four weeks ago and im in 7th grade
- Guest Is there anyway a setae can grow in the eye?
Bugscope Team they do, sometimes, especially in fruitflies
- Guest ok jelli
- Guest Where`s it live?... Scot spelled my name wrong.
Bugscope Team oh no! sorry Evan
- Guest ok
- Guest They would be great at staring contests
Bugscope Team yes, seeing as how they can't blink!
- Bugscope Team setae in between the ommatidia are often mechanosensory
- Guest lol
- Guest is it eaten by anything?
Bugscope Team bigger insects might like to eat them, or even lizards or birds
- Guest I lost control and wrecked im no longer driving
- Teacher Shannon is going to drive
Bugscope Team Shanno is the supreme commander
- Guest vrooom vrooom shannon
- Guest @ harrison don't knw just wondering
- Guest why would they need the setae on their eye
Bugscope Team they often tell the insect when things are touching it or what direction the wind is going
- Bugscope Team Shannon... sorry having trouble spelling names apparenly
- Guest i thought it was supreme ruler
- Bugscope Team and regular words
- Guest Who`s at the top of this bug food chain?
Bugscope Team Shannon is right now.
- Guest apparenTly so
Bugscope Team yo exactically
- Guest The BUG chain
Bugscope Team could be birds
- Guest what is that dandruff looking stuff
- Guest whats all those chunk all over
- Guest Dude has warts
- Guest what about frogs
Bugscope Team i think they usually like insects to be a bit smaller I think. Maybe a baby assassin bug for the frog
- Guest i meant chunks
- Guest What is the stuff like dandruff
Bugscope Team that is dirt mostly
- Guest Ohh thanks cate
- Guest This bug should take a shower
Bugscope Team this insect did not keep itself clean
- Guest Obviously so
- Guest how do they get covered in so much dirt
Bugscope Team sometimes they get covered in dirt after they die, but sometimes they are just dirty insects. Insects spend a lot of time on plants and on dirt
- Guest Clean them selfs? or preen?
Bugscope Team some insects have built-in combs that help them clean, for example, their antennae
- Guest Not in MY shower!!! no!!!!
- Guest oh thats cool\
- Guest Are the setae sticky?
Bugscope Team they can be. It helps them walk on vertical surfaces
- Teacher Is this how they can spread disease?
Bugscope Team probably the easiest way is through oral contact with a surface
- Guest Do they have anything similar to fingers>
Bugscope Team just their claws, which are the curved parts
- Guest where do they live
- Guest probably not in evan's shower
- Guest that looks gross
- Bugscope Team we do occasionally find bacteria on insects, not as common as you would think though. A lot of biting insects, especially the mosquito, get you when they drink your blood
Bugscope Team that is how people get diseases from insects
- Guest exoskeleton
- Guest @Scot Fly claw, leg seperates, 4 appendeges 2 oval edges have concretita things
- Guest Whats the strongest thing in a bugs body?
Bugscope Team some of the mandibles are strengthened with minerals such as zinc and calcium
- Teacher Does this work like a lobster claw?
Bugscope Team yes it does!
- Guest what do they use their claws for?\
Bugscope Team to grasp prey and hold it while they chew it up with their chelicerae
- Guest Are the claws or the setae more useful?
Bugscope Team the setae would be the most helpful. Not all insects have them though. A scorpion doesn't have them, so it won't be walking up your wall anytime soon
- Guest oh
- Guest like bones!
Bugscope Team yes like bones, but in insects/arthropods the bones are on the outside
- Guest Are the scorpian's claws posionous ,since their tail stingers are?
Bugscope Team no, but they could pinch you. It wouldn't hurt quite so much though
- Guest Lucky us, no wall-climbing scorpions.
- Guest thats where the poison in some is right?
Bugscope Team we think it is only in the stinger
- Guest what are the hairs for on the claw
Bugscope Team they are like cat or mouse whiskers. They tell the insect when the claw is touching something
- Guest Where are these bugs found
Bugscope Team in southern states like Texas, Arizona, New Mexico
- Bugscope Team behind the claw is carbon tape, which I stick the insects on before it goes into the microscope
- Guest thanks cate
- Guest (ant) How do the mouth/claw thingys work, is there it`s mouth behind that?
Bugscope Team the mouth is to the south in this case
- Guest thats cool
- Bugscope Team now you can see the mouth, to the south
- Guest k
- Guest is it true that with all scorpions that when a blacklight is shone on them that they glow in the dark
Bugscope Team I think almost all of them
- Bugscope Team the 2 bumps are the eyes
- Guest mouth/south heh heh ryhme.
- Guest evans turn
- Guest Are those teeth?
Bugscope Team they function like teeth; they do not really have teeth
- Teacher Evan is going to drive now
- Bugscope Team cephalothorax basically means head and thorax combined. The thorax is where the legs are on an insect body
- Guest fasten your seatbelts then duct tape yourself down because evan is driving
- Bugscope Team Evan this is it, you are the master and commander
- Guest Ahh were all going to die!
- Guest Im super champian of the world!
- Guest looks rough but relatively flat
Bugscope Team yes they look very armored
- Guest dont crash evan youre not a certified driver!
- Bugscope Team something that has a cephalothorax is not an insect. an insect has a head, thorax, abdomen, six legs, and two antennae
- Guest lol rebecca
- Bugscope Team the thing to the right is a fang
- Guest Working!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
- Guest Big fang
- Guest what do centipedes eat
- Guest they eat ...?
Bugscope Team they eat lots of things- insects, other scorpions, if they are big enough they will even eat small lizards and even mice
- Bugscope Team this is a serious centiopede
- Guest how does the driving work do you just have a lot of microscopes set up to a server
Bugscope Team only this one
- Guest how do they eat other scorpions?
- Bugscope Team none of the scorpions in the US are deadly to a healthy person- the most they can do is make the area where they sting you go numb for about 24 hours
- Guest It must be horrible and expensive for centipedes to get shoes!
- Guest do you at the lab ever get to disect the centipede?
- Guest What does this do
- Bugscope Team the software interfaces with the microscope at the level of the machine language, so we can control it quickly without other software slowing things down
- Guest Whats this do?
- Guest what does this do
Bugscope Team we are looking at where a spider spin's its web from its body
- Guest so does it cycle the slides with the "specimens" on them
Bugscope Team this is a bunch of critters on a single stub, and they're in a vacuum chamber with electrons hitting them wherever we are looking
- Guest thats a long time to have an area be numb cate
Bugscope Team it can be scary
- Guest This is a leg.
- Guest What's with the feathers
- Guest whfat ijds that
- Guest (other picture) the things towards the back look like the things octopus use to grip
- Guest looks almost like ferns
Bugscope Team they do!
- Guest @esem thanks just a little curious
- Bugscope Team they are all hairs
- Guest ooooops i meant what is that
- Guest What do spiders use to spin their webs?
Bugscope Team they have silk glands and produce web via the spinnerets. the web is liquid until it hits the air, and then it polymerizes
- Bugscope Team here are more eyes
- Guest i mean dysect( terrible @ spelling) you know look in side it. Do you get to dysect a centipead?
Bugscope Team we don't usually, but some entomologists do. That is sometimes the only way to know if an insect is male or female.
Bugscope Team centipedes are very flat, so it isn't very easy to dissect them
- Guest Gotta go! Thanks!
- Bugscope Team on the edge of the scorpions head
- Guest have you been stung or whatever it is by a scorpian cate
Bugscope Team my mom has. Thankfully the most I've been stung is once by a wasp
- Guest thats how you spell it!!!!
- Guest that looks broken and cracked what is it
Bugscope Team it was pretty flat when we got it; I don't think Cate did that.
- Guest Gota go, Next time guys. thanks!
Bugscope Team Thank you, Evan!
- Guest Bye Esem, Scot, and Cate! Thanks so much for answering my questions! I had lots of fun!
- Teacher Bryce is going to drive
- Guest Gota go, thx so much!!! It was really cool let us know if you guys do this again! :)
- Guest Kevlar is Body Armor
- Guest whats kevlar
Bugscope Team Kevlar is an artificial polymer that is very strong and resistant to cutting as well as to bullets when it is woven into cloth
- Guest bullet proof vests and stuff actually mad while trying to create a strong new tire
- Guest *made*
- Guest isn't spider web stronger than steel per millimeter
Bugscope Team i think it's comparable to kevlar
Bugscope Team according to a website it is half as strong as kevlar and is comparable to a high grade steel
- Guest o ok
- Guest ahh coool
- Guest Bye guys
Bugscope Team Bye Aidan! Thank you!
- Bugscope Team in my old lab I had to image Kevlar, and I had to cut it to get it into the right size pieces for the 'scope. it was hard to cut
- Guest bye i have to go thanks so much guys!
Bugscope Team Bye Nolan! Thank you!
- Guest @ Esem oh i bet it was
- Teacher They look like they are part of the face
- Guest Is that more debris
Bugscope Team near and upon the eye, yes
- Guest thats amazing where did you learn that cate
Bugscope Team Cate is super smart.
- Bugscope Team i read it in an article
- Guest I know that cate is really smart
- Guest What is the pentagonal shape
Bugscope Team that is what the surface of the cuticle looks like
- Guest she seems like it see more proof to my theory that reading is the main cause for higher intelligence
Bugscope Team haha yeah
- Teacher Can they really see with their eyes
Bugscope Team likely with all of their eyes they do not see very well. they use their setae to smell and to sense vibration and touch, as well as to sense hot/cold
- Bugscope Team we did not find the dustmites that made those bitemarks
- Guest Why is there sand
- Guest where are the bitemarks at
- Guest are those eggs?
Bugscope Team could be frass, not sure
- Guest whats frass
- Bugscope Team the ridged things we see are the insides of the tracheae
- Guest I typed it first
- Bugscope Team we have never seen mite eggs, who knows, maybe that's what they are
- Guest whats frass
Bugscope Team it's what entomologists call insect poop
- Guest ha cool
- Guest What are the hair tings
- Bugscope Team mites are not insects, but I'm sure the term is interchangeable with arachnids
- Guest @ESEM yes it is
- Guest my actuall name is jadin so everyone knows
Bugscope Team ha ok
- Teacher Jadin will drive before we log off
Bugscope Team we gave control to jelli
- Bugscope Team I was having trouble finding Jadin.
- Guest he's just a ninja
- Guest how are you replying to four things at once esem
Bugscope Team he is most likely clicking on things a lot. Maybe he is having some lag issues
Bugscope Team yeah not very well
- Bugscope Team the ESEM computah froze up
- Bugscope Team jelli i wouldn't use that pillow if it has grass in it since that means it has a lot of bugs
Bugscope Team frass, not grass
- Guest @ cate yeah
- Guest what is the pillow looking thing to the left
Bugscope Team haha it has frass on it like Jadin's grandfather's pillow
- Teacher What is the roud object to the left?
Bugscope Team it is some kind of hardened droplet, not sure. I don't think it belongs there.
- Guest thanks a lot esem (im being sarcastic)
Bugscope Team Yo sorry Jelli.
- Guest It's an evil monster!
- Bugscope Team ESEM is sometimes very bad.
- Guest ohhhhhh i love anomalies it like a glitch in the matrix
- Teacher It's been an hour, is it time for us to log off?
Bugscope Team we should close down in a few minutes
- Bugscope Team now you can see where we were -- the bitemarks were on the neck region of the cricket
- Guest thank you so much guys I enjoyed talking with you and I learned a lot I hope i get to talk to you guys again sometime
- Bugscope Team Thank You Jelli!
- Guest Harrison says goodbye
Bugscope Team Bye to Harrison.
- Teacher Ok. Let us know when. we have two students left. This has been great!
- Guest what is that
- Bugscope Team these are the chelicers of the scorpion, what it chews its food with
- Bugscope Team this is a female housefly
- Bugscope Team you can see her sponging mouthparts
- Bugscope Team and her compound eyes
- Bugscope Team as well as one of the antennae; the other is busted off
- Teacher Is this the mouth?
Bugscope Team right in front, but it is a little dry
- Guest where do you get the flyes for this along with everything else
Bugscope Team this one came from my sunporch
- Guest i see
- Bugscope Team the scorpion and the centipede came from a classroom in Arizonica
- Teacher What is this?
Bugscope Team this is the mouth -- the muscular sponging mouthparts
- Bugscope Team flies spit digestive saliva onto their food and then sponge it all up
- Teacher It looks divided intwo
- Bugscope Team time for us to go
- Guest thanks for your time scot and everyone else i had a great time but I should go now bye;)
- Bugscope Team but we really appreciate getting to work with you
- Bugscope Team Thank You Jelli.
- Teacher Does the saliva disolve the food?
Bugscope Team it dissolves the sugary components of the food the fly wants to ingest
- Guest thanks you too
- Guest bryce says goodbye
Bugscope Team Bye to Bryce!
- Bugscope Team See you next time!
- Teacher Thanks for this session. It has been really informative. The students were supposed to have left at 4:30 but many stayed on.
- Bugscope Team awesome
- Bugscope Team https://bugscope.beckman.illinois.edu/members/2011-171
- Bugscope Team that is your member page
- Bugscope Team if you just remember
