Afraid of cicadas?

It's going to be a rough few weeks for Cincinnatians with bug fears and phobias, experts say. If you're one of them, here's help.

The cicadas are finally here - not all 5 billion of them, of course. But the red-eyed insects came out in sufficient numbers Wednesday night for Dr. Gene Kritsky to declare Thursday morning that the emergence is under way.

Caresheets for stick insects, praying mantids, cockroaches, tarantulas, crickets, rearing caterpillars and scorpions and information on fireflies.
One of the best ways to learn about animals is to keep and look after them. insects and other invertebrates are no exception. In most cases they are easy to look after (provided you've found out about them first) , inexpensive and don't require a vast amount of space. Below are links to care sheets for some of the more commonly kept invertebrates.
New Caresheets are regularly printed in the AES Bug Club Newsletter, to receive these caresheets before they become widely available on the Internet join the AES Bug Club Don't forget there are also plenty of interesting animals in and around your house which will make excellent pets. However check with an adult before you go picking up any strange animals and always make sure you know the type of housing required for any animal you want to keep. If you do start keeping wild pets it is an idea to keep them for a couple of weeks only and then release them. T HE B UG ... EWSLETTER B UG P ETS

Growing Muskmelons in the Home Garden
Ted W. Gastier
History and Taxonomy
Muskmelons originated in the hot valleys of southwest Asia. There are numerous botanical varieties of muskmelons including: netted melons, cantaloupe melons, winter (casaba) melons, snake or serpent melons, and mango or lemon melons. Technically, cantaloupes are only those muskmelons with a rough, warty surface and a hard rind; however, the name cantaloupe has been applied to the netted varieties of muskmelons. Whether you call them muskmelons or cantaloupes, we can agree that a vine-ripened melon from your garden adds high dessert quality and fine flavor to your family's diet. In addition, muskmelons are an excellent source of vitamins A and C.
Muskmelons are a warm season crop, adapted to mean monthly temperatures of 65 to 75 degrees F, and needing ample soil moisture and plant nutrients for growth. During the ripening period the best quality melons are produced when hot, dry conditions prevail. Under Ohio's humid summer conditions, choosing a site with adequate soil drainage as well as good air drainage can help to ensure the desired quality. It is important to allow the leaf surfaces to dry to control foliar diseases.
Fertilizers and Lime
Fertilizer and lime applications are best based on soil test results. Soil sample bags, forms and instructions are available from your county Extension office. In general, when using black plastic mulch, the following amounts of fertilizer nutrients per 1,000 square feet of plot space would be adequate: 1 pound of actual nitrogen, 2 pounds of phosphorus (P

Insects of Mass Destruction Could Insects Be Used as Bioweapons?
By Lee Dye
April 8
Ramaswamy, who chairs the department of entomology at Kansas State University, is concerned that the tiny little insects he has spent a lifetime studying could become implements of international terrorism. It's possible, he says, that even a stable fly, or something as tiny as an aphid, could be used to distribute deadly pathogens over a wide geographical area in a surprisingly rapid and efficient manner. Bugs as delivery systems for weapons of mass terror. "It wouldn't be as spectacular as the World Trade Center," he says, "but it would be more insidious." Poison-Fed Flies His concern began almost as a joke with a colleague at Kansas State. The two entomologists were talking a couple of years ago about the war in Afghanistan and the effort to flush terrorists out of the Tora Bora caves with high pressure bombs.

170. Boxelder Bugs, G75-237-A (Revised June 1992)
Life history and control of boxelder bugs.
(Revised June 1992)
Boxelder Bugs
This NebGuide discusses the importance, life history and control of boxelder bugs. Frederick P. Baxendale and David L. Keith, Extension SpecialistsEntomology Previous Category Catalog Order Info
Boxelder bug adults are about 1/2 inch long. They are slate-gray with three red lines behind the head and red lines on the wings. The rear half of the wings have a reddish margin and the abdomen under the wings is also red. Nymphs (young bugs) are bright red with darker heads. They resemble adults, but their wings do not fully develop until they reach maturity. Boxelder Bug
Host Plants
The primary host plant of the boxelder bug is the female (seed-bearing) boxelder tree where they feed by sucking plant juices. Boxelder bugs have also been observed on male boxelder, ash, maple and occasionally on strawberries, grasses, and various other plants, but they usually are incapable of full development on these hosts.
Plants are seldom injured seriously enough to justify insecticidal control. However, when large numbers of young bugs are observed on boxelder trees, insecticidal sprays will reduce the number that reach maturity and become nuisance pests during the fall, winter, and spring. When seeking an overwintering site, boxelder bugs often enter buildings through small openings around windows, doors, conduits, and pipes and through small cracks in or above the foundation. Large numbers may be seen around foundations when seeking entry. Inside the home boxelder bugs may stain curtains and walls. They do not damage food or other items in the home, nor do they bite humans or pets.

173. Arthrophoda Identification Photos
An overview of morphological features of the different Classes of arthropods and Orders of insects, with photos of Italian arthropods by Alessandro Strano.
HOME Download Ephemerides Images ... Curiosity IDENTIFICATION OF ARTHROPODA Introduction. Arthropods are the most numerous "phylum" of the animal kingdom: about the 95% of all known species belong to this "phylum". Arthropods can be distinguished from other animals because they are invertebrate and have articulate legs ; this character gives the name to the phylum. They have two compound eyes (formed by many eyes called ommatidia) and/or the ocelli (simple eyes). Most of them are oviparous, they lay eggs, but there are also viviparous arthropods procreating living animals and ovoviviparous arthropods, the incubation of eggs is internal and therefore the eggs open when they are laid. Generally arthropods are subject to the metamorphosis process. Here it is the list of the most common classes of Italian arthropods. The name of classes is the Latin one and, when available, there is also the link to the photos (in the legend there are the scientific name of order and suborder in black; family in blue; genus, species and subspecies in brown, and the common name in green). Photos were taken in Catania and Pedara (Sicily). Crustacea Class Crustacean dermoskeleton (external body layer made of chitin) is strong and generally covered by calcareous: most of them live in the sea and respiration is brachial. Their body is divided in cephalothorax (thorax and head are fused together) and abdomen; they have

By Julianna Kettlewell
BBC News Online science staff
The noise is beginning to grow A swarm of cicadas has emerged after 17 years underground in the eastern US.
Trillions of the insects will blanket the landscape in a frenzy of breeding, before dying en masse in June. The bugs, which have the longest known adult-to-adult cycle, will have to contend with a more developed world than the one they left behind in 1987. Some scientists say urbanisation is endangering periodical cicadas: at least one population is already extinct and others are at risk, they fear. Click here to send us your pictures of the cicada storm This month though, if you are in the thick of the action, it is hard to imagine a time without cicadas. Chocolate-covered cicadas are my favourite
