Study Surveys the Insects in Raleigh-Area Homes
May 11, 2016
Sorry, North Carolina, you are not alone in your homes.
That, perhaps, should not come as a surprise. Hardly a week goes by where we don’t find a bug or spider hiding in a dark corner of our kitchen or bedroom, but many people probably don’t wonder how many others there might be—while many others don’t want to know.
For all of the high-tech science that cicadas are providing the researchers at North Carolina Central University’s Biomanufacturing Research Institute and Technology Enterprise (BRITE), it seems only fitting to talk a little more about the mysterious insects. That’s because there might not be another insect that provokes more emotional reaction than the periodical cicada; a creature that you will only find between the eastern half of the Great Plains and the Atlantic Coast.
Periodical cicadas are not found anywhere else on Earth.
I just don't think the human race gives insects enough credit for all they do for us.
Think about it. Insects must deal with the pressure of simply surviving in a world that is constantly evolving. That includes not being eaten by a bird that is flying by or getting snared in a spider’s web.
