Our episode today begins our descent into insect horror movies! For the month of October we will be discussing two movies in this sub-genre and dissecting what the insects may symbolize as well as the biology that may make them so scary! We start with The Swarm from 1978.
Trailer for The Swarm:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YpO4gvW6D3Q
Ridiculous moments from the film:
Materials on Africanized bees
Utah State extension sheet
University of Georgia extension bulletin
National Geographic video on Africanized bees
Of course, we also continue down our pest management path with a new pest profile. This week we describe the oriental cockroach, aka the waterbug, and talk shop on IPM based methods of control. Tune in if you find yourself dealing with this particular pest!
