- Bugscope Teamthis is the underside of an ant's head; you can see the edge of its compound eye on the lower left
- GuestI have arrived
- TeacherCan AI have control
- Bugscope TeamYou should have it now.
- Bugscope Teamum I just took it away and gave it back to see if that function was working
- Bugscope Teamai has control
- GuestHooray, it's working!
- Bugscope Teamthe carnivorous hemiptera are said to have triple jointed probosci
- Bugscope Teamis this a Turing test?
- 12:20 pm
- TeacherEvery year....same thing
- Bugscope Teamthis is awesome
- Bugscope Teamlooks like an ocellus
- Guestwhat are those hairs for?
Bugscope Teamoften, or usually, they are sensory
- Bugscope Teammechanosensory, chemosensory, thermosensory
- TeacherOr for looks
- Bugscope Teamthey may also help disguise the ambush bug, or assassin bug
- GuestHow do the structures of the hairs on insects compare with human hairs?
Bugscope Teamthere are big differences depending on what purpose they serve
- Bugscope Teamhuman hairs turn out to be mechanosensory, of course
- GuestIs that just debris on the compound eye or is it something special?
Bugscope Teamrandom juju
Bugscope Teamdebris. usually it's just dirt or dust. bugs do live a lot on or in the ground
- GuestIs juju a scientific term?
Bugscope Teamfor the past 10 years
- TeacherCan Larry hanks have control?
- 12:25 pm
- Bugscope TeamLarry! You have control!
- Bugscope Teamif you are a descriptivist, juju should be in the lexicon by now
- Bugscope Teamfruitfly vestiture, compound eye
- Guestwhy does this have hairy eyes?
Bugscope Teamwe think they help the fly sense wind speed and direction
Bugscope Teamwe see them on fruitflies
- Guestdo all flies and bees have hairy eyes
Bugscope Teama lot of flying insects do. the hairs help with flying better
- Bugscope Teamfor some insects, setae, and more likely microsetae, help with thermoregulation
- Bugscope Teamthe eyes are on the side of the head
- Bugscope Teamsilverfish have scales like mosquitoes, moths, and butterflies
- 12:30 pm
- TeacherCan earth19999 have control.
Bugscope Teamthey have control
- Guest(Elephant in the room)
- Guestwhat are all the hairs on the silverfish meant for?
Bugscope Teamthey are likely mostly mechanosensory, some chemosensory, some thermosensory
Bugscope Teamthe silverfish spends a lot of time in dark areas, and mechano sensing is important
- Bugscope Teamfemale mosquito
- Bugscope Teamyou can tell by the non-ornate antennae
- Bugscope Teamscales are also setae, modified setae
- Bugscope Teamthe ommatidia are a bit shriveled..
- Guestscot, you're psychic!
- GuestLooks like this guy got his wax job...
- Guest(Dr. Ray just said that)
- Bugscope Teamthe tiny dots we see now are on the nanoscale
- Guestwhat are those bumps on the ommatidia?
Bugscope Teamwe think they are similar to the rods and cones in our eyes
- 12:36 pm
- GuestHow do you guys feel about live TV appearances?
Bugscope Teamhaha We worked with your school in S. Africa. That was enough for us re TV.
- Guestahh its the sarlacc
- Bugscope Team exactly!
- Bugscope Teamnow you can see microsetae, which are not sensory
- TeacherHanbrolo should control the scope now
- Bugscope Teamplus setae, plus the spiracle
- Bugscope Teamhanbrolo has the force
- Bugscope TeamHan I think the original preset shifted since we set it.
- Bugscope Teamup way close you could see brochosomes
- Bugscope Teamwhich are usu 250 to 400 nm in diameter
- Guest wait..hansolo never became a jedi
Bugscope Teamnot accredited
- Bugscope Teamnope he didn't but everyone has some amount of force

- GuestWe aren't talking about boots here Dr. Ray
- Bugscope TeamDr Marten.
- Guestwhere are they
- GuestIt is time.
- Bugscope Teamproprioception
- Bugscope Teamwe are somewhere on the fly
- Guestwhat are we looking at SCOT
Bugscope Teamthis is the base of the cranefly's haltere
- GuestCan we watch "Let the Right One In" on your projector?
- Bugscope Teamyou can see a pollen grain there, below
- GuestSo I heard Dr. Marten is cool
- 12:46 pm
- Guesttell me about doc marten's
Bugscope TeamI heard that John Fluevog did one of the original designs.
- GuestThere's too much juju on this fly
- Guestis there any other insects that tony can look at
Bugscope TeamDorian Gray
- Bugscope Teamthere he is; the last one was his portrait
- Bugscope Teamthese beetles have interesting sensillae on the palps
- Bugscope Teamyou can see the pulvillus as well, or could a second ago
- GuestDo you have any insect eggs available for viewing?
Bugscope Teamno sorry. we dont see them too often
- Bugscope Teamthis looks like the remnants of a biofilm
- 12:51 pm
- GuestWhat's the most interesting insect you've been able to put under the SEM?
Bugscope Teamwe like earwigs because they often have mites, we like hexapods although I guess by definition they're not insects
- TeacherCan apicellam have control.
Bugscope Teamthey have control
- Bugscope Teamwe like weevils and leafhoppers
Bugscope Teamand cerambycids of course
- GuestAre the bugs you put under the scope limited by size or can you put bigger bugs under the scope too?
Bugscope Teamthe stub is 1.75 inches in diameter; some bugs are so large you don't really need and electron microscope to see them
- Bugscope Teamso we could put a cicada in but it would take up most of the available space, and they're not very interesting
- GuestHas anyone seen my friend Hopper?
- Bugscope Teamgeneralists are less interesting than specialists
- GuestGot any Lepidoptera?
- TeacherTicks are really cool
Bugscope Teamin the lifespan of a tick, it often gets broken open; they can seal the cuticle back up
- 12:56 pm
- GuestHave you gotten bugs from school groups that are too big to put under the SEM?
Bugscope Teamyes often
Bugscope Teamfor instance cicadas are usually too big
- Guesthave you had the opportunity to examine exotic/ endanger insects under SEM?
Bugscope Teamonce we had an Israeli fly in the 'scope that was one of six known in the world
- Guestwhy you no finish talk about doc marten
- Guestahh, the face only a terrified mother could love
- Bugscope Teamwe see bacteria on the surface of ticks, regularly; so if they can re-seal their cuticle when it bursts open, clearly those bacteria can live inside as well as outside the body; why, perhaps, they're so dangerous
- TeacherOk it is about time to go :(
- GuestCan you guys do fossils?
Bugscope Teamwe have done them, and once even for bugscope. it isn't very interesting
- GuestThanks for the Brain Blast!
- Guestthanks!!!! Have a greaaaaaaaaat afternoon!!! EAT FROST FLAKES!!!! THIS WAS VERY FUNNY
