Hey can anybody who knows a bit more about gastropods than me let me know if the things in the circle are eggs or something else? I am inclined to think eggs bc as you can see in pic 2 there’s more right by the slug, as well as just how they’re all grouped together, but I’m unsure and they look a lil weird compared to pics I saw online. I also have been checking on it constantly so I know these are a very new development ? Any help would be appreciated :’) I’m not sure what else they could be BUT eggs and if they are I wanna make sure to prepare for them.
Idk if this has been asked before, but how many times have you been stung by bees? Is it common for bee scientists to be stung? Also what is the most colorful bee species in your opinion? Thank you for your blog, I learned stuff about bees today
Under 10 times probably. So not much at all. My thesis work and the work I’m doing now doesn’t involve having to open hives which is when you typically get stung.
Bees are pretty chill and the times I have been stung were when we were opening hives for maintenance or I was being an idiot.
It depends really what work you’re doing. If you’re a bee geneticist you’re probably never going to be stung compared to a beekeeper or a researcher that needs to be opening hives.

How Florida Mosquito Control Could Trim Disease in Northern States

Researchers in Florida have pinpointed the local overwintering habitats of mosquitoes that host eastern equine encephalitis virus. They hope targeted control efforts can cull those mosquitoes before they transmit the virus to birds that carry it north to other parts of the country.

Caterpillars have a few methods of self defense, depending on the family or species. One technique most caterpillars I find use, is regurgitation.
The caterpillar creates a ball of regurgitated foodplant from its mouth, then spits it out onto the attacker. From my knowledge, this attack is harmless to humans. It seems to be used to either startle, or disgust any predator looking for a meal.
