- 9:03 am
- Bugscope Teampiump
- Bugscope Teampumping down
- Bugscope Teamdid not suddenly learn to type overnight
- Bugscope Teamkind of disappointing
- Bugscope Teamabout ready to click the gun on
- 9:09 am
- 9:15 am
- 9:22 am
- 9:27 am
- 9:32 am
- Bugscope TeamWe are ready to roll, early this time.
- 9:48 am
- Bugscope TeamGood morning!
- Bugscope TeamWelcome to Bugscope!
- Bugscope TeamWe can confer control of the microscope to whoever you want at any time, just let us know
- StudentWhat is this?
- Bugscope Teamthis is the surface of the exoskeleton of a spinose eartick
- Bugscope Team'spinose' means it has spines, and these are some of the spines
- Bugscope TeamHi!
- Bugscope TeamLet us know if someone would like to drive the microscope, as Cate had mentioned.
- Bugscope TeamGroup 6 has control now.
- Bugscope Teamthe presets in the lower right are clickable for those that have control of the scope
- 9:54 am
- Bugscope Teamthis is the base of one of the spines. These are soft ticks, which we had not seen before.
- TeacherCan you please give control to Group 7
- Studentcool, does eartick mean it lives in your ear?
Bugscope Teamit seems they do go for ears, this one goes for livestock though
- Bugscope TeamIt is likely they have been found in ears before. They probably crawl there and settle in for a little while.
- Studentwhat is this?
- Bugscope Teamnow you can see that it is indeed swollen with blood
- TeacherCan this tick give you cancer
Bugscope Teamlikely it cannot give you cancer, but some ticks can give you bad diseases, like Lyme Disease.
- Studenthow long does an eartick live
- Bugscope Teamthose are its arms
- Bugscope Teamthe spinose ear tick is a pest of cattle, horses, sheep, and goats
- Studentcan you coat the objects in any other types of metal
Bugscope Teamyes: platinum, gold, silver if we wanted to
- Teachercan this tick be deadly to some animals or humans
Bugscope Teamyes they can cause tick paralysis, that can eventually cause death
- Studentmay we view a different bug?
- StudentCan humans get these ticks?
Bugscope Teamthere is an article on line about one being found on a little girl's eye, or right next to it
- Studenthow long do they live for?
Bugscope TeamThe larvae and nymphs feed from 1 to 7 months, and, when feeding, become almost spherical like this one. They then drop off and become adults that aren't parasitic and only lay eggs. So I'm guessing they can live for upwards of a year
- Teachercorrection (Do ticks have hair)
- 9:59 am
- Teachercan the Eartick reproduce very quick
Bugscope TeamSometimes. The eggs are dropped off in a secure location, usually a moist area perhaps under leaves or debris. In warm conditions, oviposition will start in one to two days following copulation. In colder conditions, females may wait months to oviposit eggs.
- Studentwhat does a honeybee eat
Bugscope Teamthey eat nectar and honey
- StudentWhat are the claws for?
Bugscope Teammany different insects, or in this case crustaceans, will have claws that are used to grab onto things like food
- Teacheris that its legs and how many legs does it have
Bugscope TeamI think most of them have fourteen legs
- Studentrolly-polies are awesome
Bugscope Teamyes this one is particularly cool-looking
- TeacherWhat is this
- StudentIs that a stinger?
- Student whut is this
- Studentwhat kind of metal do you coat it in?
Bugscope Teamgold-palladium; we use a sputter coater that puts only a few nanometers of metal on the surfaces we're looking at
- StudentWhat is the stinger made of?
Bugscope TeamThe stinger, along with the exoskeleton, is made of chitin, which is the same stuff your fingernails are made of. It is very tough stuff
- Teacherwhy is this so big
- Bugscope Teamthe wasp can sting repeatedly, and it does not have recurved spines that make the stinger stay in your skin
- StudentCan we magnify it more?
Bugscope Teamyes you can
- Studenthow long can wasps live?
Bugscope Teamusually a season or less. it usually depends in part on what the function of that wasp is. and some are solitary
- TeacherCan you please give control to Group 8? Thanks!
Bugscope Teamgot it!
- StudentWhat is this
- Teacherisn't this a honey bee
Bugscope TeamThis is a wasp, the honeybee has a barbed stinger
- Bugscope Teamthere is also a honeybee on this stub
- Studentdont males get pollen and they have the stinger
Bugscope TeamNo. Females are the workers. Males are drones and they sit "at home" and are waited on by the workers. Their only purpose is for mating
- 10:04 am
- Teacherthat looks like a cow face
- StudentWhat are the little hairs for?
Bugscope Teamthe little hairs, called setae, have many functions
- Bugscope Teamsee the jaws? they open side to side. we are just above there now
- Bugscope Teamthat is called the clypeus, above the mouth opening
- Studentis it used for eating
- StudentIs the big thing in the middle a nose?
- Studentwhat are the eyes made out of
- TeacherI have been told that Honey bees don't sting you unless they have to. Is that true.
Bugscope Teamthey are conservative about stinging because it will kill them
- StudentWhat are the pinchers for?
- Bugscope Teamsetae ('see-tee') are sensory, sometimes; they can feel touch and sense hot/cold; they can also, some of them, taste chemicals in the air
- TeacherWhat do the honeybees do with their jaws
Bugscope Teamthey chew up the pollen/nectar and mix it with saliva to make honey
- Teacherhow big can the average honey bee get to
Bugscope Teamthey usually get to a certain size and don't keep growing; their ultimate size depends on what they are going to be doing
- StudentDon't honeybees only sting you when you mess when their hive, or are they afraid of you?
Bugscope Teamhoneybees are very non-aggressive. They will usually only sting you if you like step on them or really mess around their hive. Wasps are the aggressive ones
- StudentWhats that
- Teacherdo honeybees see color like us.
Bugscope Teamthey see some colors and not others; they don't see all of the colors we see
- StudentWhat is the honey be claw for?
- StudentWhat purposes do the claws of the honeybee have
Bugscope TeamThey are there to help grab things or to help stay on things like flowers or whatever they want to cling to
- StudentIs this a leg?
Bugscope Teamthis is the claw, at the end of one of the tarsi
- Studentdo honybees sting you in any specific place, i know a guy who got stung twice in the same spot
- StudentWhat is this?
- Teacherdo honey bees have better eye sight than humans
Bugscope Teamin some ways they do -- if you had compound eyes like that you would have better peripheral vision and be better able to sense motion
- StudentIs that nectar/pollen on the leg?
- Studentcan honeybees see any other part of the electromagnetic spectrum
Bugscope Teamthey may be able to see in the ultraviolet; I'm not sure though
- 10:09 am
- Studentwhat is the bigger thing in the middle?
- Studentwhat is a tarsi?
Bugscope Teamtarsi are the final segments of the leg or arm
- Teacherdo male honeybees mate with the female every other year
Bugscope TeamI have read that the queen flies far away so that she can mate with males from other colonies, not hers
- Studentdo hornets have a relation to wasps
- Studentwhy do bugs have so many circles in their eyes
Bugscope Teamthe shape we see, of the individual facets, called ommatidia, is hexagonal, as you can see, and it is a good shape to be if the eye is round and bulbous
- Teacherwhat is the general life span of a honey bee without it stinging someone
Bugscope TeamThe length of a female honeybee's life depends on when she emerges from her cocoon. If she emerges in the early spring, she may only live for a few weeks as she prepares the hive for lots of new bees. Workers who emerge later may live through the winter.
- StudentIs this from the bee
- StudentDo lady bugs see multiple images?
- TeacherIs this a ladybug eye
Bugscope Teamyes this is the ladybug eye, and it has many ommatidia, which are the individual lenses
- StudentHow many lenses does the lady bug have on its eyes? It looks like they have alot
- StudentDo the cracks affect its vision?
- Studentwhat is the little spike in the middle of the eye
Bugscope Teamthat is a single seta, or hair, on the eye. Many flying insects will have these to help tell the insect the direction the wind is blowing
- TeacherWhy does the female honeybee mate with other male bees form diffrant collines
Bugscope TeamI imagine it is a behavior that has evolved to ensure that the colony does not suffer from inbreeding
- TeacherBees have cocoons
Bugscope Teamyes. Once she lays eggs, the eggs go through the same stages as caterpillars and butterflies do. First they hatch into larvae. The larvae eat before spinning cocoons and becoming pupae. They then emerge from the cocoons as adults.
- Studentwhat is the ommatadia
Bugscope Teamommatidia (ommatidium, singular) are the facets of the compound eye
- StudentDo ladybugs blink?
Bugscope Teamno they do not have eyelids
- StudentCan you please give control to group 3?
- TeacherIs a honeybee related to hornets and wasps
Bugscope Teamhoneybee, wasps, and ants are all in the same order- hymenoptera
- 10:14 am
- TeacherWhat is that
Bugscope Teamthis is a low mag image of the ladybug, and the background is the stub covered with carbon tape that we stick the insects on
- Teacherwhat is hymenoptera
Bugscope TeamHymenoptera is the order to which bees, ants, and wasps belong
Bugscope TeamThe name refers to the heavy wings of the insects, and is derived from the Ancient Greek humen: membrane and pteron: wing. The hindwings are connected to the forewings by a series of hooks called hamuli.
- TeacherDo bugs breath often
Bugscope Teamthey breathe through their spiracles, and presumably as necessary
- Studenthow big is the microscope
Bugscope Teamit is in two parts, comprised of a part that is as big as a large desk and another part that is about the size of a fridge
- StudentHow big is the microscope you are using?
- TeacherHave you ever had a bug blow up
Bugscope Teamyes but not that dramatically
- Teacherhow many legs does a millipead have
Bugscope Teamthat depends on the length of the millipede. They have two pairs of legs per segment (except for the first segment behind the head which does not have any appendages at all, and the next few which only have one pair of legs).
- TeacherDo millapeeds have eyes
Bugscope Teamyes they do
- Bugscope Teamspiders sometimes give off gas and will shut down the microscope briefly
- Studentis there any dangers to you with the use of this microscope
Bugscope Teamin the old days there might've been a problem with x-rays, but now we are pretty well protected
- StudentWhat is that goo stuff on the leg?
- StudentHow much does it cost to coat a bug?
Bugscope Teamwe charge I think about $7
- StudentWhat are the lumps on the legs?
- Bugscope Teamyou could also get shocked if you were touching the wrong thing, but usually you stay away from those places
- 10:19 am
- Bugscope TeamInsects breathe through openings that lead the oxygen through a trachea. The trachea run through the whole insect body. The amount of inspired oxygen is limited with such system. This may be the answer why insects don't grow much larger than 10 centimetre. In prehistoric times, when there was more oxygen in the atmosphere, insects could grow to much larger sizes.
- Teacherthen why are there antenas coming out of the eye socket
Bugscope Teamit looks like an eye socket but it really the antenna socket. we think the eye should be there because we think about ourselves, but antennae are sometimes more important than eyes
- Studentdo you have to be in a different room than the microscope
Bugscope Teamwe dont have to be, but we usually are. Sometimes we will have our own entymologist log in and help us out
- Teacherdo bugs have blood
Bugscope Teamthey have what is called hemolymph, and it is often clear, or yellowy
- StudentHow many bugs do you have there?
Bugscope Teamwe have lots of different kinds, but we usually limit the amount we put on a sample for bugscope to about 10, usually less.
- Teacherwhat does( ')this mean
Bugscope TeamIt means we are quoting the original question or statement, and we are answering
- Studentcould we have a coated bug????=)
Bugscope Teamyou could; it would look silver; but it would be fragile
- Teacherthe anteena socket looks hairy
- Teacherwhat is this
Bugscope Teamthis is a tick claw
- Teacherokay thanks
- Studenthaha yellowy is a funny word
- Studentwhat are we looking at now
- Teacheris that a hook
Bugscope TeamYes, that is the tick's form of a claw
- StudentWhy isn't the claw very sharp? What is it used for?
Bugscope Teamit may not look sharp but they are. This high of a magnification makes things not look as sharp. You'd be surprised but how blunt a hypodermic needle may look
- TeacherDo they use it for defense?
- Studentcould u coat an elephant
Bugscope Teamthe chamber is very small, and we would have to do it in small pieces
- Studentare you able to use this microscope to view any size organism
Bugscope Teamthe size is limited to about a couple inches in length and height
- StudentCan you gold coat anything bigger than a bug?
- Studentis this what they use to cling to walls
Bugscope Teamthese claws are very small that they could probably cling to a wall that is textured, but usually the insects that cling to walls have special pads of hairs at the end of their legs that act as velcro or suction cups
- Teachercan you code a cat
Bugscope Teamsimilarly, it would have to be done in pieces, not pretty to imagine
- Studentwhy dont insects have blood
Bugscope Teamit is interesting -- they are different life forms compared to us, and they do so many things in what we think are odd ways
- 10:25 am
- Teacherdo ticks have more than one mouth
Bugscope Teamjust the one
- Studentwhat is this
- TeacherI thought you said bugs have blood. Right?
Bugscope Teamhemolymph is like blood to an insect, but it is not really blood
- TeacherSince this bugs eyes is on the side of its head does it have to turn its head to see
Bugscope Teamno it has better peripheral vision than we do; it does not have to turn its head
- Studentwhat is this
- StudentDoes this insect suck blood?
Bugscope Teamthe image before this that had the weird looking blood can. Those types of insects, called true bugs, have a mouth part called a proboscis, which it uses to drink liquids like bug blood or plant sap
- Teacherthen how do they live
Bugscope Teamthey use the hemolymph sort of like we use blood, but I don't think it carries oxygen like ours does
- StudentCan you please give control to group four?
- Teacheryes some bugs suck blood right
Bugscope Teamyes they do; it is nutritious but does not serve the purpose our blood does for us
- Studenthow can this microscope zoom in so far?
Bugscope Teamit is using electrons to image, instead of light. Electrons are much smaller and so they create better resolution images. That is also why we are imaging in black and white
- Bugscope Team"weird looking bug"
- Studentcouldl you mail us a coated bug
- Teacherthen do they even carrie oxegen
Bugscope Teamthe oxygen gets into the organs via tracheae that are connected to the spiracles
- StudentDo bugs have hearts?
Bugscope Teamthey have organs that are like hearts, but they do not have a closed ciculatory system with veins and arteries like we do
- Teacherwhat is this
Bugscope Teamthis is showing the honey bee eye and part of her head to the right
- Teacherdo some bugs have bones
Bugscope Teamin a way. They have all their bones on the outside- an exoskeleton. Exo meaning out or outside
- 10:30 am
- Studentwhen are u going to mail it to us thanks and that cool
Bugscope Teamplease ask your teacher to remind us
- Teacherwhat does via tracheae
Bugscope Teamoxygen comes into the spiracles and is distributed through the inside of the body via the tracheae
- StudentWhat are the hairs for?
Bugscope Teamhairs are used for various things like touch, smell, taste, etc. You must remember they have a hard shell around them and without those hairs they wouldnt be able to feel anything
- Teacherthen does that mean that muslce supports the inside of their body
Bugscope Teamyes there are lots of muscle attachments to the inside of the exoskeleton
- TeacherI sthis like a leg of a honeybee or something
- Studentwat is this
- Studentdo lady bugs smell scents with there antenna? =)
Bugscope TeamI believe they can; most insects can smell using their antennae, and they can sometimes smell with other setae not on the antennae as well
- Studentwhy do you have to coat the organisms with metal
Bugscope Teamwithout the metal, the insects aren't very conductive. The specimens have to be conductive to get good images with an electron microscope
- Teacherwhat is photosyhthises have anything to with bugs
- StudentWhat metal gives the best image?
Bugscope Teamgold-palladium is very good because it is so fine; we cannot see it unless we are at a super high mag
- Teacherdo bugs smell
Bugscope Teamyes they can, and yes they do, sometimes
- Studentare those setae on the legs? i here some flies taste with there feet .
Bugscope TeamMonarch butterflies famously taste with their feet, using setae on their feet.
- Studentwhy do you only use bugs? why not a snake or frog
Bugscope Teaminsects, when they are dead and dry stay in the same shape as when they were alive usually, because of their exoskeleton. Snakes and frogs will not only take a while to dry out, but they will shrivel quite a bit after they die.
- StudentDo bugs have a brane?
Bugscope Teamyes they do have a brain and a nervous system to go with is. The hairs you see are all connected to nerves underneath the exoskeleton
- StudentDo you do any thing else with that microscope
Bugscope Teamyes we teach researchers to use it to do their work, and usually it is not with insects but with other things they study
- Teacherhypathetically if a bug couldnt find food would it resort to chanabalism
Bugscope Teamyes they often do
- StudentWhat metal gives the worst image?:)
Bugscope Teamgold alone makes a chunky surface
- TeacherAre these things hair or antennaes
Bugscope Teamthose are setae
- 10:35 am
- Studentwe thinkthe hair in the middle is moving is this possible?
Bugscope Teamit is possible because sometimes the electrons can move the sample slightly
- Teacherwhy do bugs eat each other
Bugscope Teamjust because they are hungry; ladybugs, for example, feed on other insects
- Studentwhy do bugs not eat human food like small pieces of lucky charms
Bugscope Teamsome do, like ants or some beetles. Also wasps like to eat our garbage, you may see them buzzing around your trash or picnic table
- Studenthow high of an electron beam do you use (power wattage)
Bugscope Teamwe are using 5000 Volts but just microAmps of current, so probably a few hundred Watts
- TeacherWhat is this suppose to be?
- StudentHow was the SEM devoloped?
Bugscope Teamthe SEM was developed after the concept was perfected using the transmission electron microscope (TEM)
- StudentCan bugs feel pain?
Bugscope Teamyes they can
- Teacherwho invented all the microscop
Bugscope TeamThe first SEM image was obtained by Max Knoll, a german scientist. Transmission electron microscopy was developed first I think
- StudentIf we were to be hit by the electron beam that the microscope uses could it harm us? If not what would happen?
Bugscope TeamIt would be very harmful. Electron beams can boil things, or make things explode easily.
- Studenthow many lightbulbs would one hundred watts power
Bugscope Teamone to four, generally
- 10:40 am
- Student`why dont you use a hard plastic or glass to coat the bugs?=)
Bugscope Teamthose are not conductive
- StudentWhat is the shiny stuff in the background?
Bugscope Teamthat is some oil that got on the insect, most likely after it died
Bugscope Teamit's shiny because it isn't very conductive
- Bugscope Teamwe need to have something conductive to carry the excess electrons to ground, or else we will not get good images
- Studentwhy do you have to use a conductive metal
- StudentCan you please give controle to group 8?
- Studentdo u now how many bugs are in the world :)
Bugscope Teamthere are around 925,000 species
- StudentWill you show us some bugs coated in a different metal?
Bugscope Teamit wouldn't look very different under the microscope. Right now, these insects are coated with gold/palladium alloy, which makes the sample look silvery. We can also coat with gold or platinum.
- Studentwhat is the shiny stuff in the background
Bugscope Teamthat was an oily coat of something, some kind of juju
- TeacherIf we were to be hit by the electron beam used by the (SEM) would we be harmed ? if not what would happen?
Bugscope Teamthe electron beam would not be coherent in the air -- it would not work well
- Studentwhat do the holes do?
Bugscope Teamthose are called placoid sensilla, and they may may chemosensory or perhaps just self-sensory, telling then insect if its antennae are bending
- Studentdoes the room have to have special material for the microscope to operate well
Bugscope Teamwe keep the main component of the microscope on an air table to help eliminate vibrations. Vibrations are bad when it comes to using this microscope
- Studentdo you use a platinum coating often if not which do you use most often
Bugscope Teamno we don't use it often because it is a little expensive. Maybe a couple times a year
- StudentWhat is this?
- Studentcan you please give control to group 12
- 10:45 am
- Studentwhat is this
- Teacherwhat are the pointy things
- StudentWhich metal do you use the most often?
Bugscope TeamWe use gold/palladium because it coats smoother on the sample
- Studentwhat are the dented crators
Bugscope Teamthose were the placoid sensilla
- StudentWhich bug is the best for this?
Bugscope Teamwell, insects that are super hairy or have lots of scales, like moths, are harder to coat well
- Studentdoes the room have to have special material for the microscope to operate well
Bugscope Teamno it is just normal, but there are no electrical fields that will mess things up
- Teacherwhat is the highest magnification on the (SEM)?
Bugscope Teamthis microscope can go to around a million X, but we can't see much beyond 200,000x.
- Studentwhat is the flat thing on its face
Bugscope Teamthat is called the clypeus
- Studentcould you use a non living thing with a coating? Say a chair coated in gold platinum.
Bugscope Teamyes we could
- Studentdoes the room have to be at a certain temperature for the microscope to operate
Bugscope Teamit works better if it is a little cool so that the instrument and the computers do not overheat
- StudentHow do you get the bugs? Do you just find them, or breed them for the microscope?
Bugscope Teampeople bring them, send them, we collect them sometimes
- Studenthow many legs does this bug have?
Bugscope Teamsix; all insects as adults have six legs
- 10:50 am
- Studentthe things under the clypeus, what arethey called
Bugscope Teamthe jaws, and also the palps, mandibular and maxillary palps, two of each
- StudentPlease give control to Group 4
- Studentwhat are these hairs for
Bugscope TeamThese are probably mostly for touch sensations
- Studentwhat would a coated desk look like, would it be like a shiny desk or like this buggy here?
Bugscope Teamit would look shiny if the wood was very smooth
- Teacherare there any specific preparations you have to make before you coat the bug?
Bugscope Teamwe like to make sure the parts we would like you to see are not obscured by other parts
- Studentwhy do humans kill bugs
Bugscope TeamThe main reason is because they are pests, like to farms or animals or our homes.
- StudentWhat would happen if you mixed all the metals?
Bugscope Teamthey would look silvery
- Studentdo bugs like to live in one spot until it dies or does it move from place to place
Bugscope Teamsome insects move a lot, and some stay in one place. similar to spiders, which are not insects; some of them are territorial and stay in pretty much one place unless they are disturbed
- Studentdo you use a mix of the metals
- Studentwhat this
- Teacherhow does the microscope produce the electrons?
Bugscope Teamthe electrons come from a filament sort of like the wire in a lightbulb
- Studentwat would happen if a living organisim was put under the SEM? would it die slowly or quickly
Bugscope TeamIf we were to put it in the microscope, we have to bring the chamber it is in to vacuum. I think it would die pretty quickly. It wouldn't be able to breathe. Insects can hold their breath a little bit though.
- StudentIs the different ;layers on the outside hard like armor
Bugscope Teamyes it is just like if we were wearing a suit of armor
- 10:55 am
- Studentdo you use a mix of the metals for coating
Bugscope Teamyes gold:palladium, and I think it is 70:30 but not sure now
- StudentWhat is that?
Bugscope Teamthis is a rolly-poly
- Studentdo bugs live on humans
Bugscope TeamThere are mites and ticks and lice that do
- StudentWhat does the trunklike thing on the true bug do?
Bugscope Teamit is part of the piercing mouthparts, and it pierces plants or insects and sucks out juices
- Studentwhat kinds of materials do you use to coat bugs
Bugscope Teamgold-palladium and silver to help with conductivity but not to coat
- Studentwhat mix of metals is gold:pallidium
Bugscope Teamthose are both elements, the element gold and the element palladdium
- Studentdoes a rolly polly have a face+
Bugscope Teamyes it does; this one is kind of cute
- Bugscope Teamoops palladium (sp.)
- StudentWhat is the chemical mixture for pallidium?
Bugscope Teampalladium is an element like carbon or oxygen, etc.
- Teacherif the bugs are coated in metals how do you see the actual bug?
Bugscope Teamthe metal is only a few nanometers thick, very very thin
- Studentwhat is this grayish serfsce of
Bugscope Teamit looks gray because we are getting signal from the electrons that come back from the sample; we are not able to collect color
- Studentchaos,do you collect bugs often are they usually live or dead
Bugscope Teamwe usually get them dead, but every now and then we get them alive and we stick them in the freezer where they die a more "humane" way
- 11:02 am
- Bugscope TeamChaos and Console are the logins we used when we were in the microscope room. Now we're in our offices.
- Studenthow to you get these bugs and are they dead when you get then. Have some bugs beenmixbreaded like dogs.
Bugscope Teamusually they are dead, but sometimes we freeze them. some insects can crossbreed, and that is what was expected to happen with the africanized honeybees
- Bugscope Teamthat is, some people expected that the super aggressive African honeybees would breed with normal bees, and the hybrids would not be as mean
- TeacherThank-you so much, BugScope! Our class time is over, but we had a lot of fun!
