Arthro-Pod EP 78: Insecticide Resistance with Caleb Hubbard

On today's episode of Arthro-Pod, the gang meets with Caleb Hubbard of the University of California Riverside. Caleb is a veterinary entomologist that works with house flies that can cause issues with dairy farms. These flies can be tough to control but also complicate things by becoming resistant to the insecticides we use against them. 

Tune in to learn about what insecticide resistance is, how it develops, and how researchers try to figure out ways to study it. Also, we learn a recipe for maggot food that sounds pretty yummy.
