It has been estimated that over humanities history more than 50 billion people have been killed by mosquitoes. That is approximately half of all humans that have lived on this tiny blue dot killed by mosquitoes. For this reason, mosquitoes have been called man's greatest nemesis.Mosquitoes are so dangerous to humans that some scientists have proposed eradicating them from this planet. Is that a good idea? Well, that's up for debate. But what we do know is when we control the mosquito population less people are killed by their bites. What is a mosquito? Mosquitoes are a common, flying insect that lives in most parts of the world, except Iceland for reasons no one knows. Over 3,500 types of mosquitoes can be found worldwide. Mosquitoes have been vectors of a lot of nasty viruses, such as malaria and yellow fever, for thousands of years. But up to a little over a hundred years ago, we didn't even know that mosquitoes caused these diseases. So, are mosquitos better than human? For this tiny animal, the answer is no, they are not better than human. Well, maybe they are ...Listen now to learn how this wee bug has changed the course of humankind.

Up into the 1800s, lobster was considered trash food in the U.S., fit only to feed prisoners, the poor, and cats. Surprising, huh? How did lobster rise from the dirty bottom of the food preference list to float at the very top amongst the high society? Find out how lobsters were entangled in protests and revolts of servants, snuck into passengers' foods on train rides, and were even caught up in World War II. Red to Green is a podcast focused on the future of food and food sustainability. We cover topics like cellular agriculture, cultured meat, food waste, food packaging, and more.

They cover the entire value chain – from ag-tech, alternative proteins, water supply, food security, decentralized food production, vertical farming, to food waste and carbon reduction. https://foodlabs.de/ The American lobster is native to the Atlantic coast of North America, mainly from Labrador to New Jersey. In the early days of the first settlers and way up into the middle of the 19th century, lobsters were so plentiful in this area that people could wade into the water and catch what they needed for dinner with their hands. While early colonists depended on the crustaceans for much of their food, the sheer abundance of the animal didn't help its popularity. When lobsters washed up on the shore after storms, they were considered smelly trash and used for fertilizer in the fields. They were the cheapest source of protein available in the area and therefore regarded as undesirable peasant food, too bland to be edible for discerning tastes. As 19th-century American navy captain and politician John J. Rowan stated: "Lobster shells about a house are looked upon as signs of poverty and degradation." Lobsters were also a common food in prisons, much to the displeasure of inmates, and were the food of servants.

Here at the soybean pest podcast, we do not limit ourselves to our namesake. After Erin summarizes ongoing effortst to track insect pests of soybeans, we look to Iowa's other commodity, corn. She breaks down the progress of soybean aphids, Japanese beetles, thistle caterpillars and leaf hoppers (in the drought plagued corner of nortwest Iowa). We discuss corn rootworms, and old wives tale connecting rootworms to lighting beetles and a surprise attack of stink bugs to a corn field in southeastern Iowa. If you want more immediate pest alerts, consider joining the Midwest Pest Alert Network: https://pestalerts.extension.iastate.edu/ After the pest talk, Erin shares a new insect identification challenge from University of Nebraska. See how well you do against Professor Doctor Erin, she scored a 97%. https://4h.unl.edu/online-insect-id-contest?fbclid=IwAR1uNzEBoqEgQx9QYcw8_p4nepJCnX9Mmwqd8twbSFx-owINXDfX90JARoM Matt completes the pod with a Fun Insect Trivia question.

It's said the first cut is the deepest – for forages, it's also the longest in terms of plant development and giving pesky insects the opportunity to snack on the growing crop. Christine O'Reilly, forage and grazing specialist with the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA), discusses how the season is going so far in preparation for (or shortly after) the first cut for many forage farmers, as well as scouting and management tips for alfalfa weevil and potato leafhopper, the two major insect pests with which Ontario forage growers must contend.

Holmberg's Morning Sickness - Brady Report - Tuesday June 14, 2022
Ant-loving professor, Adam Hart, shares his passion for leaf cutting ants with Jim Al Khalili. Why do they put leaves in piles for other ants to pick up? Talking at the Hay Festival, Adam describes the experiments he designed to test the intelligence of the hive mind. When does a waggle dance become a tremble dance? And how do the honey bees know when this moment should be? We like the phrase ‘as busy as a bee'. In fact, bees spend a lot of time doing nothing at all, a sensible strategy from the point of view of natural selection. And where does Adam stand on insect burgers? Producer: Anna Buckley

It's clear that animal feed supply chains in their current form are unsustainable for industrial animal production systems. To keep up with increasing global demand for meat, alternatives to the traditional feedstocks should be considered. So, what role can insect protein play? In this webinar, an expert panel discussed how insects are developing as an alternative protein, the opportunities for scale and impact, and the regulatory and financial environment needed to make it happen. Panel: Sara Walton, sector lead, agri-food standards, BSI Arnold van Huis, emeritus professor, laboratory of entomology, Wageningen University Cindy Dunston Quirk, CEO and founder, Scout & Zoe's Premium Pet Products Adrian Charlton, principal scientist, Fera Science This discussion, held in partnership with BSI, was moderated by Toby Webb, founder of Innovation Forum.

In episode 39 of the Outdoor Minimalist Podcast, we get to talk about eating insects. While I'd love to do an episode on insect proteins in a human diet, today we are going to focus on insect proteins, our pets, and the planet. There is a lot to be said about dog nutrition and the impact our pet's diets have on the environment. To help make this topic a bit more palatable, I had the pleasure of chatting with Wesley Cooper, the co-founder of Neo Bites. Neo Bites is a company on a mission to accelerate the shift towards sustainable animal nutrition through insect protein. Neo Bites is the product of Wesley's desire to play a pivotal role in the fight against climate change. During his time working in the food and beverage industry in NYC, his life-long passion for sustainability led him to learn more about the climate impact of our chosen protein sources. It was during this time that he was introduced to insect protein, and Neo Bites came to fruition shortly after.

Colorado potato beetle is a crucial pest of potatoes. It's aggressive and comes back year after year. It can destroy a crop. But the key challenge with this pest is its ability to develop resistance to many different chemistries, making them ineffective. What can growers do about it? What options do they have? Tune in for insight from the field.

Director of the UW-Madison Insect Diagnostic Lab PJ Liesch -- otherwise known as the Wisconsin Bug Guy -- outlines how you can protect yourself from Wisconsin's top pests. Mosquitoes will take advantage of this rainfall to breed. Remove standing water from your property -- a water bottle cap of water can breed over a dozen mosquitoes. While the itching is a nuisance, ticks are the No. 1 target for entomologists because of the diseases they carry, such as Lyme disease. Insect repellent and thorough tick checks are key to preventing disease. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Oliver Milman joins the scientists tracking the decline of insect populations across the globe, including the soaring mountains of Mexico that host an epic, yet dwindling, migration of monarch butterflies; the verdant countryside of England that has been emptied of insect life; the gargantuan fields of U.S. agriculture that have proved a killing ground for bees; and an offbeat experiment in Denmark. With urgency and great clarity, Milman explores this hidden emergency, arguing that its consequences could even rival climate change. Join on us as we discuss The Insect Crisis, with acclaimed journalist Oliver Milman who dives into the torrent of recent evidence that suggests this kaleidoscopic group of creatures is suffering the greatest existential crisis in its remarkable 400-million-year history, on this installment of Leonard Lopate at Large on WBAI 99.5FM.

The Insect Crisis - Oliver Milman The Not Old Better Science Interview Series Welcome to The Not Old Better Show on radio and podcast. Great to be with you today on a beautiful spring day…not a cloud in the sky…birds chirping…just perfect outside…but, is it? It isn't, because the world's insect population is in decline — and that's bad news for humans. Our guest today is science and environment author Oliver Milman. Oliver Milman will join us in a moment to discuss his new book, Insect Crisis: The Fall of the Tiny Empires That Run the World, and Oliver Milman will tell us about his devastating examination of how collapsing insect populations worldwide threaten everything from wild birds to the food on our plate. From ants scurrying under leaf litter to bees able to fly higher than Mount Kilimanjaro, insects are everywhere. Three out of every four of our planet's known animal species are insects. In The Insect Crisis, acclaimed journalist Oliver Milman dives into the torrent of recent evidence that suggests this kaleidoscopic group of creatures is suffering the greatest existential crisis in its remarkable 400-million-year history. What is causing the collapse of the insect world? Why does this alarming decline pose such a threat to us? And what can be done to stem the loss of the miniature empires that hold aloft life as we know it? That of course is our guest today, author and science writer Oliver Milman reading from his new book, Insect Crisis, and we'll answer questions about insects as pests, they're not, the full scope of this insect loss, what the loss of pollinators means, and a portrait of a crisis that threatens to upend the workings of our collective history. Part warning, part celebration of the incredible variety of insects, The Insect Crisis is a wake-up call for us all. Please join me in welcoming to The Not Old Better Show on radio and podcast, science and environment best-selling author Oliver Milman.
