- Bugscope TeamHi Nicole!
- Bugscope TeamWelcome to Bugscope!
- 3:16 pm
- Guesthow long is this session going to last?
- Bugscope Teamit will run from 3:45 to 4:45; it's 3:15 here
- Guestwhere were these samples collected from?
- Bugscope Teamsome came from Arizona, some from my back porch
- Bugscope Teamtoward the end of the winter we are often poorly stocked
- Bugscope Teamnow it's easier to get samples
- Guestwhat's the most interesting bug you have ever collected?
- Bugscope TeamI like weevils, earwigs because they often have mites, leadfhoppers. Scorpions are interesting.
- Bugscope Teamleafhoppers, that is. also ticks are pretty cool
- 3:21 pm
- Bugscope Teamticks usually have bacteria on them
- Guestwhy do scorpions kill themselves with their own stingers?
Bugscope TeamI wasn't aware of that, I'm sorry; maybe a relationship gone bad?
- Bugscope Teamthe venom does not affect them
- Bugscope Teamyeah 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 Teamthis right here is interesting because we can see where dustmites have been chewing away the chitin on this cricket
- Bugscope Teamscorpions are sensitive to heat. If they cannot escape it they may start panicking and start stinging themselves
- 3:28 pm
- Guestoh that makes more sense:)
- Bugscope Teamscorpions chew their food rather than swallowing it whole or sucking it up like a milkshake
- Guesteveryone says flys live only a day is that true?
Bugscope Teammost live for around a month, but there are probably some species that live for around that long
- Bugscope Teamsome flies, like mayflies, may live only a few hours, at least the males
- Bugscope TeamHi Tom!
- Bugscope TeamWelcome to Bugscope!
- Guestwhy do they flys make a buzzing sound?
Bugscope Teamthat is from their wings flapping. they are resonating with the air
- 3:33 pm
- Bugscope TeamTom we are ready to roll.
- Bugscope TeamWe can make a few more presets, but if you would like to drive please try it out
- Teacherwe are watching. Students will log in at 3:40 if that is ok. Right now there are eoght of us
Bugscope Teamno problem, of course
- TeacherWe see a guest login but no "student" login at this time
Bugscope Teamjust use the guest login for students; for some reason student does not always come up as a choice
- GuestHi My name is jessica. I am a student at Washington State Universtiy-tri cities. I do my student teaching in August
Bugscope TeamHi Jessica!
- TeacherOK. students will log in in two minutes.
- 3:40 pm
- Bugscope TeamJessica 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.
- GuestHi im Aidan
- GuestHi, I'm Bryce
- Bugscope TeamHi Aidan!
- Guesthi im nolan im a student at MSJH
- Bugscope TeamHi Bryce!
- Guestthanks for letting me join in and watch. I will keep that in mind :)
- Bugscope Teamhi!
- Bugscope TeamHi Nolan!
- GuestHey, I'm Shannon
- GuestHi, I'm Harrison
- Bugscope TeamHi Shannon!
- GuestHi, i'm Rebecca, i go to the MSJH School (7th )
- Bugscope TeamHello Harrison!
- Bugscope TeamRebecca! Yay!
- GuestI'm also from MSJH
- GuestMSJH means mahomet seymour junior high
Bugscope TeamI wonder where that is?
- GuestI'm from MSJH (8th)
- GuestMe too, MSJH
- GuestI go to Mahomet Seymour too
- GuestMahomet, IL
- GuestHi, I'm jelli! I'm from Mahomet- Seymour Junior High
Bugscope TeamHello Jelli!
- Guestyour names jelli! thats soo cool
- Guesthello! Im from msjh, Nolen`s place.
Bugscope TeamHi Evan!
- Guestits NOLAN with an A!
- Bugscope Teamhere is a silverfish. You might find them in your bathrooms
- Guestoh, sorry
- Guestits cool
- GuestAre those scales? Or just skin?
Bugscope Teamthey are definitely scales!
Bugscope TeamScales! Good call.
- GuestHas anyone made a life-size statue of him
- GuestThat's what o thought
- Bugscope Teaminsects and other arthropods do not have skin -- they have an exoskeleton, which is like having a shell, like a shrimp
- Guestoh gosh yuck!
- Bugscope Teami think if i saw a human-sized insect I would turn the other way and run
- Guesti dont want to find one in my bathroom!
Bugscope TeamYo Dude you can save it for Bugscope!
- GuestYeah thats a good plan
- Guesti like shrimp and it does need to shave
- 3:45 pm
- Guest@EVAN agreed
- Guestwhats the @ for
- GuestSo why do they live in a bathroom
Bugscope Teamthey live on water, molds, sometimes glue in books...
- GuestOh cool
- GuestAre they at all harmful?
- Guestyeah its a bug not a fish
- Guestwhys it called thar
- GuestWhy`s it called a silverfish?
Bugscope Teamprobably because they move like quicksilver and also reflect silver from their scales
- Guestno its an arthropod Nolan!
- TeacherDo't silverfish eat Paper? If so how dot the do it?
Bugscope Teamthey like sugars and starches. That includes cellulose, which paper is made from. They use their mandibles to chew the paper
- Guesti mean that not thar
- Bugscope Teamthey wiggle around when they move like a fish
- Guesti know isnt that a kind of bug
Bugscope Teamyeah silverfish are insects
- GuestHwta purpose do the hairs serve
- GuestThank you
- Bugscope Teamthey are also called 'fishmoths'
- GuestHarrison means what
Bugscope Teamson of Harris
- Guest@Harrison your welcomme
- Guestwhat do the hairs do
Bugscope Teamthe 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
- GuestYes the most boring name ever
- Guestohhh thats cool
- Guestflies do that too right?
- GuestWhere`s its ears?
Bugscope Teammost insects do not have ears, but they can sense vibration from the air, which is what sound is, using some of their setae
- 3:50 pm
- Guest@ Scott Wish I could do that
- GuestIf they like sugar and starch, why don't we find them in our kitchen
Bugscope Teamthey aren't just limited to bathrooms, that is just where I notice them the most, before I squish them.
- Guesti wish i could hear with my hairs
- GuestDo hairs regrow? It looks like some are missing
Bugscope Teamif the insect or arthropod is going to molt, the setae will regrow, but often we are looking at adult end-stage insects
- GuestI mean now?
- Guestthey look like feelers @bryce
- GuestWhats that pic of mow?
Bugscope Teamthis is a live image from the scanning electron microscope; up 'til now no one from your school has tried driving
- GuestWhat are the pine cone type things
Bugscope Teamthose are called pulvilli- they are pads of special setae, called tenant setae, which allow the insect to walk on vertical surfaces
- GuestWhat are the claws used for since their microsopic
Bugscope Teamsame things we use our hands for- to hold onto things
- Guestthats how they climb walls @cate
- GuestThey just hold onto microscopic things or walls
Bugscope Teamthe tenent setae are sticky and help flies, etc. cling to walls
- GuestWhat are the huge hairs for
Bugscope Teamthose are more mechanosensory- they tell the insect when they are touching something else
- Bugscope Teamthe tiny curved things we see now are tenent setae
- TeacherHarrison is going to try to drive.
- Bugscope Teamthey act like velcro or suction cups to the wall
- GuestThat looks like a pinecone
Bugscope Teamyes it does!
- GuestSo the eyes are basically worthless, because they almost have no use at all?
Bugscope Teamto many insects eyes are very important
- 3:55 pm
- TeacherHarrison is going to drive
Bugscope TeamHarrison is the supreme ruler
- GuestAre the claws like bird claws or reptile or what?
Bugscope Teami guess you could compare them to bird claws
- Guestthe ears must have no use either
Bugscope Teamthey 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 Teamsoon, Dude
- Bugscope Teamhere is a true bug with a long face
- Guestevan you are NOT the supreme ruler
- Bugscope Teamthe 2 bulbs on either side are the compound eyes
- Bugscope Teamthe part in the middle is the proboscis, which it uses to sip liquids
- Bugscope Teamtrue bugs have piercing sucking mouthpars
- Bugscope Teammouthparts...
- Bugscope Teamlike this
- GuestWhy is it called the assassin bug , not the vampire bug
- GuestLike blood?
Bugscope Teamthis is an assassin bug; it pierces other insects and drinks their hemolymph, which is insect blood
- GuestPropb, no Poro, Probisda, no...
- GuestThats it!!
- Guestyeah duh evan
- GuestWhat is the long thing on top for
Bugscope Teampart of what we see is the pumping mechanism for sucking up liquids
- Guestahhh cool
- Bugscope Teamthe 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
- Guestwhat are the round things underneath that look like cocconuts
- 4:00 pm
- GuestAgain, gross
- GuestInsect blood? what's the difference between human blood and insect blood? Besides the name of course
Bugscope TeamI 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
- GuestOK thanks
- GuestI get to drive! Hooray!
- Guestuh oh dont crash
- GuestSo what does it use to carry oxygen to different parts of its body fpr
Bugscope Teamin 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
- Guestwhy do they suck blood why dont they eat like other bugs
Bugscope Teaminsects are opportunistic, and not wasteful; for some, other insects make good food
- GuestLooks like Epcot
- Guestoh i get it now
- Guestis that dust on the eye or some crazzzzzzy enzyme
- Bugscope Teamwe 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.
- GuestDo they have a protective covering or something over the eye? or is the eye itself scratched (at least it looks that way)
- GuestNow it's up close
- Guestits NOLAN with an A and its faster not to use caps @evan
- TeacherWhat does each hexagonal shape represent?
Bugscope Teamthose 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
- GuestWhy are they all in hexigon shapes
Bugscope Teamthat is the best way to stack round objects and form an overall spherical shape
- Guestoh that makes sence
- 4:05 pm
- Guestwhat is a parasitic wasp?
Bugscope Teamthey 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
- GuestWhat is the confetti thing?
Bugscope Teamthat is some sort of debris, maybe some spider webbing
- GuestWhat you see on the screen is the width of our hair. That's tiny!
- Guestthats absolutely discusting but cool
- Guest@ Scot Whats parasitic mean?
Bugscope Teamit means that it uses another insect to its advantage but does not contribute anything positive in the exchange
- Guestisnt a parasite like a disease?
Bugscope Teamit means something is latched onto you, using up your nutrients.
- Guestoh ok like a leech @scot
- Guestso thats why its so hard to sneak up on one...
Bugscope Teamcompound eyes are very sensitive to changes in the visual field, i.e., motion
- Guest@ Scot Wow, bad trade
- Guestohh I remember learning about parasitic now thanks
- GuestWhat are the white chunks?
Bugscope Teamoften 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
- GuestScot rules!
Bugscope TeamThanks, Even!
- Guestare the eyes protected?
Bugscope Teamnot really; they can get scratched up
- Guesti suppose
- Guestwhere do these live
Bugscope Teamyou 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
- Guestok i think i know what a host is @harrison
- GuestSo can our eyes
Bugscope Teambut insects do not have eyelids
- GuestDoes these also come from Arizona, and ESEM's back porch, or some where else
- Bugscope TeamESEM is scot, he always has a couple different logins
- Guestdo 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 Teamhard to tell; eventually they would make it harder to see in one direction
- Guestyep I just learned about it four weeks ago and im in 7th grade
- GuestIs there anyway a setae can grow in the eye?
Bugscope Teamthey do, sometimes, especially in fruitflies
- 4:10 pm
- Guestok jelli
- GuestWhere`s it live?... Scot spelled my name wrong.
Bugscope Teamoh no! sorry Evan
- GuestThey would be great at staring contests
Bugscope Teamyes, seeing as how they can't blink!
- Bugscope Teamsetae in between the ommatidia are often mechanosensory
- Guestis it eaten by anything?
Bugscope Teambigger insects might like to eat them, or even lizards or birds
- GuestI lost control and wrecked im no longer driving
- TeacherShannon is going to drive
Bugscope TeamShanno is the supreme commander
- Guestvrooom vrooom shannon
- Guest@ harrison don't knw just wondering
- Guestwhy would they need the setae on their eye
Bugscope Teamthey often tell the insect when things are touching it or what direction the wind is going
- Bugscope TeamShannon... sorry having trouble spelling names apparenly
- Guesti thought it was supreme ruler
- Bugscope Teamand regular words
- GuestWho`s at the top of this bug food chain?
Bugscope TeamShannon is right now.
- GuestapparenTly so
Bugscope Teamyo exactically
- GuestThe BUG chain
Bugscope Team could be birds
- Guestwhat is that dandruff looking stuff
- Guestwhats all those chunk all over
- GuestDude has warts
- Guestwhat about frogs
Bugscope Teami think they usually like insects to be a bit smaller I think. Maybe a baby assassin bug for the frog
- Guesti meant chunks
- GuestWhat is the stuff like dandruff
Bugscope Teamthat is dirt mostly
- GuestOhh thanks cate
- GuestThis bug should take a shower
Bugscope Teamthis insect did not keep itself clean
- 4:16 pm
- GuestObviously so
- Guesthow do they get covered in so much dirt
Bugscope Teamsometimes 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
- GuestClean them selfs? or preen?
Bugscope Teamsome insects have built-in combs that help them clean, for example, their antennae
- GuestNot in MY shower!!! no!!!!
- Guestoh thats cool\
- GuestAre the setae sticky?
Bugscope Teamthey can be. It helps them walk on vertical surfaces
- TeacherIs this how they can spread disease?
Bugscope Teamprobably the easiest way is through oral contact with a surface
- GuestDo they have anything similar to fingers>
Bugscope Teamjust their claws, which are the curved parts
- Guestwhere do they live
- Guestprobably not in evan's shower
- Guestthat looks gross
- Bugscope Teamwe 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 Teamthat is how people get diseases from insects
- Guest@Scot Fly claw, leg seperates, 4 appendeges 2 oval edges have concretita things
- GuestWhats the strongest thing in a bugs body?
Bugscope Teamsome of the mandibles are strengthened with minerals such as zinc and calcium
- TeacherDoes this work like a lobster claw?
Bugscope Teamyes it does!
- Guestwhat do they use their claws for?\
Bugscope Teamto grasp prey and hold it while they chew it up with their chelicerae
- GuestAre the claws or the setae more useful?
Bugscope Teamthe 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
- Guestlike bones!
Bugscope Teamyes like bones, but in insects/arthropods the bones are on the outside
- GuestAre the scorpian's claws posionous ,since their tail stingers are?
Bugscope Teamno, but they could pinch you. It wouldn't hurt quite so much though
- GuestLucky us, no wall-climbing scorpions.
- Guestthats where the poison in some is right?
Bugscope Teamwe think it is only in the stinger
- 4:21 pm
- Guestwhat are the hairs for on the claw
Bugscope Teamthey are like cat or mouse whiskers. They tell the insect when the claw is touching something
- GuestWhere are these bugs found
Bugscope Teamin southern states like Texas, Arizona, New Mexico
- Bugscope Teambehind the claw is carbon tape, which I stick the insects on before it goes into the microscope
- Guestthanks cate
- Guest(ant) How do the mouth/claw thingys work, is there it`s mouth behind that?
Bugscope Teamthe mouth is to the south in this case
- Guestthats cool
- Bugscope Teamnow you can see the mouth, to the south
- Guestis it true that with all scorpions that when a blacklight is shone on them that they glow in the dark
Bugscope TeamI think almost all of them
- Bugscope Teamthe 2 bumps are the eyes
- Guestmouth/south heh heh ryhme.
- Guestevans turn
- GuestAre those teeth?
Bugscope Teamthey function like teeth; they do not really have teeth
- TeacherEvan is going to drive now
- Bugscope Teamcephalothorax basically means head and thorax combined. The thorax is where the legs are on an insect body
- Guestfasten your seatbelts then duct tape yourself down because evan is driving
- Bugscope TeamEvan this is it, you are the master and commander
- GuestAhh were all going to die!
- GuestIm super champian of the world!
- Guestlooks rough but relatively flat
Bugscope Teamyes they look very armored
- Guestdont crash evan youre not a certified driver!
- Bugscope Teamsomething that has a cephalothorax is not an insect. an insect has a head, thorax, abdomen, six legs, and two antennae
- Guestlol rebecca
- Bugscope Teamthe thing to the right is a fang
- 4:26 pm
- GuestBig fang
- Guestwhat do centipedes eat
- Guestthey eat ...?
Bugscope Teamthey eat lots of things- insects, other scorpions, if they are big enough they will even eat small lizards and even mice
- Bugscope Teamthis is a serious centiopede
- Guesthow does the driving work do you just have a lot of microscopes set up to a server
Bugscope Teamonly this one
- Guesthow do they eat other scorpions?
- Bugscope Teamnone 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
- GuestIt must be horrible and expensive for centipedes to get shoes!
- Guestdo you at the lab ever get to disect the centipede?
- GuestWhat does this do
- Bugscope Teamthe software interfaces with the microscope at the level of the machine language, so we can control it quickly without other software slowing things down
- GuestWhats this do?
- Guestwhat does this do
Bugscope Teamwe are looking at where a spider spin's its web from its body
- Guestso does it cycle the slides with the "specimens" on them
Bugscope Teamthis is a bunch of critters on a single stub, and they're in a vacuum chamber with electrons hitting them wherever we are looking
- Guestthats a long time to have an area be numb cate
Bugscope Teamit can be scary
- GuestThis is a leg.
- GuestWhat's with the feathers
- Guestwhfat ijds that
- Guest(other picture) the things towards the back look like the things octopus use to grip
- Guestlooks almost like ferns
Bugscope Teamthey do!
- Guest@esem thanks just a little curious
- Bugscope Teamthey are all hairs
- Guestooooops i meant what is that
- GuestWhat do spiders use to spin their webs?
Bugscope Teamthey have silk glands and produce web via the spinnerets. the web is liquid until it hits the air, and then it polymerizes
- Bugscope Teamhere are more eyes
- Guesti mean dysect( terrible @ spelling) you know look in side it. Do you get to dysect a centipead?
Bugscope Teamwe don't usually, but some entomologists do. That is sometimes the only way to know if an insect is male or female.
Bugscope Teamcentipedes are very flat, so it isn't very easy to dissect them
- GuestGotta go! Thanks!
- Bugscope Teamon the edge of the scorpions head
- Guesthave you been stung or whatever it is by a scorpian cate
Bugscope Teammy mom has. Thankfully the most I've been stung is once by a wasp
- Guestthats how you spell it!!!!
- Guestthat looks broken and cracked what is it
Bugscope Teamit was pretty flat when we got it; I don't think Cate did that.
- 4:31 pm
- GuestGota go, Next time guys. thanks!
Bugscope TeamThank you, Evan!
- GuestBye Esem, Scot, and Cate! Thanks so much for answering my questions! I had lots of fun!
- TeacherBryce is going to drive
- GuestGota go, thx so much!!! It was really cool let us know if you guys do this again! :)
- GuestKevlar is Body Armor
- Guestwhats kevlar
Bugscope TeamKevlar is an artificial polymer that is very strong and resistant to cutting as well as to bullets when it is woven into cloth
- Guestbullet proof vests and stuff actually mad while trying to create a strong new tire
- Guestisn't spider web stronger than steel per millimeter
Bugscope Teami think it's comparable to kevlar
Bugscope Teamaccording to a website it is half as strong as kevlar and is comparable to a high grade steel
- Guesto ok
- Guestahh coool
- GuestBye guys
Bugscope TeamBye Aidan! Thank you!
- Bugscope Teamin 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
- Guestbye i have to go thanks so much guys!
Bugscope TeamBye Nolan! Thank you!
- Guest@ Esem oh i bet it was
- TeacherThey look like they are part of the face
- GuestIs that more debris
Bugscope Teamnear and upon the eye, yes
- Guestthats amazing where did you learn that cate
Bugscope TeamCate is super smart.
- Bugscope Teami read it in an article
- GuestI know that cate is really smart
- 4:36 pm
- GuestWhat is the pentagonal shape
Bugscope Teamthat is what the surface of the cuticle looks like
- Guestshe seems like it see more proof to my theory that reading is the main cause for higher intelligence
Bugscope Teamhaha yeah
- TeacherCan they really see with their eyes
Bugscope Teamlikely 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 Teamwe did not find the dustmites that made those bitemarks
- GuestWhy is there sand
- Guestwhere are the bitemarks at
- Guestare those eggs?
Bugscope Teamcould be frass, not sure
- Guestwhats frass
- Bugscope Teamthe ridged things we see are the insides of the tracheae
- GuestI typed it first
- Bugscope Teamwe have never seen mite eggs, who knows, maybe that's what they are
- Guestwhats frass
Bugscope Teamit's what entomologists call insect poop
- Guestha cool
- GuestWhat are the hair tings
- Bugscope Teammites are not insects, but I'm sure the term is interchangeable with arachnids
- 4:42 pm
- Guest@ESEM yes it is
- Guestmy actuall name is jadin so everyone knows
Bugscope Teamha ok
- TeacherJadin will drive before we log off
Bugscope Teamwe gave control to jelli
- Bugscope TeamI was having trouble finding Jadin.
- Guesthe's just a ninja
- Guesthow are you replying to four things at once esem
Bugscope Teamhe is most likely clicking on things a lot. Maybe he is having some lag issues
Bugscope Teamyeah not very well
- Bugscope Teamthe ESEM computah froze up
- Bugscope Teamjelli i wouldn't use that pillow if it has grass in it since that means it has a lot of bugs
Bugscope Teamfrass, not grass
- Guest@ cate yeah
- Guestwhat is the pillow looking thing to the left
Bugscope Teamhaha it has frass on it like Jadin's grandfather's pillow
- 4:47 pm
- TeacherWhat is the roud object to the left?
Bugscope Teamit is some kind of hardened droplet, not sure. I don't think it belongs there.
- Guestthanks a lot esem (im being sarcastic)
Bugscope TeamYo sorry Jelli.
- GuestIt's an evil monster!
- Bugscope TeamESEM is sometimes very bad.
- Guestohhhhhh i love anomalies it like a glitch in the matrix
- TeacherIt's been an hour, is it time for us to log off?
Bugscope Teamwe should close down in a few minutes
- Bugscope Teamnow you can see where we were -- the bitemarks were on the neck region of the cricket
- Guestthank 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 TeamThank You Jelli!
- GuestHarrison says goodbye
Bugscope TeamBye to Harrison.
- TeacherOk. Let us know when. we have two students left. This has been great!
- Guestwhat is that
- Bugscope Teamthese are the chelicers of the scorpion, what it chews its food with
- 4:52 pm
- Bugscope Teamthis is a female housefly
- Bugscope Teamyou can see her sponging mouthparts
- Bugscope Teamand her compound eyes
- Bugscope Team as well as one of the antennae; the other is busted off
- TeacherIs this the mouth?
Bugscope Teamright in front, but it is a little dry
- Guestwhere do you get the flyes for this along with everything else
Bugscope Teamthis one came from my sunporch
- Guesti see
- Bugscope Teamthe scorpion and the centipede came from a classroom in Arizonica
- TeacherWhat is this?
Bugscope Teamthis is the mouth -- the muscular sponging mouthparts
- Bugscope Teamflies spit digestive saliva onto their food and then sponge it all up
- TeacherIt looks divided intwo
- Bugscope Teamtime for us to go
- Guestthanks for your time scot and everyone else i had a great time but I should go now bye;)
- Bugscope Teambut we really appreciate getting to work with you
- Bugscope TeamThank You Jelli.
- 4:57 pm
- TeacherDoes the saliva disolve the food?
Bugscope Teamit dissolves the sugary components of the food the fly wants to ingest
- Guestthanks you too
- Guestbryce says goodbye
Bugscope TeamBye to Bryce!
- Bugscope TeamSee you next time!
- TeacherThanks for this session. It has been really informative. The students were supposed to have left at 4:30 but many stayed on.
- Bugscope Teamawesome
- Bugscope Teamhttps://bugscope.beckman.illinois.edu/members/2011-171
- Bugscope Teamthat is your member page
- 5:03 pm
- Bugscope Teamif you just remember
