SQUISHY THINGS TO THE RESCUE! BUGS EATING PLASTIC!

posted by Brian Ross - 

I normaly avoid putting bugs and spiders and other icky things on my blog, but this could be such a huge find, I have to give the creepy-crawlies some credit.


Click the pic above for the article from the BBC tells us that scientists in Cambridge U. have discovered that moth larvae can digest plastics, which could be a huge pollution reducer in the future. 

And that's not the first time that insects have helped humans.  Ever hear of "maggot therapy?"  Fly larvae eat dead tissue, so if used properly, they can help prevent infections and gangrene.  I heard WWI stories about that.  Article below.

And as any fan of CSI knows, how they grow can tell Gil Grissom how long ago someone had been murdered.  Go get 'em, Gil!  "Whooooooo are you?  Who-oo!  Who-oo!"
