Insecta: Science That Stings

Episode 1 of 1

In INSECTA: SCIENCE THAT STINGS, leading insect scientists explore the painful stings and the fascinating science behind a variety of bugs as they study the often unseen world surrounding us. The half-hour documentary offers an intimate look at the people with a passion for bugs and discovers why they study the creatures that many people avoid, even capturing YouTube star Coyote Peterson as he is intentionally stung by a tarantula hawk. Through interviews with entomologists Cara Gibson, Wendy Moore and Justin Schmidt, INSECTA: SCIENCE THAT STINGS illuminates the intriguing features and striking appearance of different insects, including the bombardier beetle that can generate a small chemical explosion when touched.
