Bug Walk a Success
Dr. Delano Lewis led a very successful "Bug Walk" at the site on Monday August 3. He explained about how he is doing insect inventories on the EBF site, then shared some interesting bug information around the site. A highlight was that participants got to see ants farming aphids. This "farming" behaviour is one of nature's many wonders - ants guard and protect aphids, which in turn exude droplets of honeydew which the ants feast upon!
