It's a matter of hiding in plain sight for a newly discovered species of ant. These insects are able to infiltrate the nests of other species and gain access to their food sources by "disguising" themselves by using a few unique techniques.
Scientists have discovered that insects' fear of their predators ultimately limits how fast they grow, which could be an important factor to take into account when monitoring how insects might react to climate change.
Scientists have examined century-old museum specimens in order to learn how global climate change will affect a common insect pest that can weaken and kill trees.
It turns out that two broad-spectrum systemic insecticides, fipornil and imidacloprid, may be especially toxic to honeybees.
Scientists are learning a bit more about butterflies; they've traced nearly 3,000 genes to find the earliest common ancestor of butterflies and moths, creating an extensive evolutionary tree.
A massive collection of 20-million-year-old amber may have revealed a whole new world to scientists. Researchers have uncovered fresh insights into ancient tropical insects and the Earth that they inhabited.
Did you know that bees have tongues? Now, scientists have taken a closer look at them to see what determines the length of their tongues, which could be crucial to understanding bee species' resiliency to change.
Researchers have found that some species of bees in Brazil "shout" when it comes to their food-recruitment signals.
Researchers have found that plants can respond to the sounds that caterpillars make when eating plants, which causes them to raise their defenses.
Trap-jaw ants are predatory hunters with venomous stings and jaws powerful enough to fling themselves through the air. Now, this species is spreading into new territory in the southeastern U.S., and may have actually started to evolve into a separate species.
A tiny spider from the Negev desert in Israel likes to go big or go home. This small arachnid routinely preys on insects up to almost four times its own size.
