Insect Investigations

Season 7, Episode 7 of 13

This program focuses on four different insect species and some of their unique characterictics. The Horse Lubber Grasshopper is one of the few insects that's truly a "picky" eater. The Boxing Fly staunchly defends its territory in a special host organism: walnuts. The Water Beetle is a voracious predator, eating even birds. The Agave Moth is part of an intricate, balanced, and mutually beneficial relationship, acting as a pollinator for a flower.
