Another amazing article. The one thing I take away from this blog is the incredible adaptation. So many different varieties of this insect developed to feed on different parts of the plant at different stages of development. The most interesting of the many facts was the one where the mother covers her eggs in excrement to make them unappetizing and also to give them a protective shell.
Insects are fascinating (to me). They always have been. You explain the information so clearly and the photos are a great assist. Really, thank you very much.
