Our world contains countless swarms of insects that play a pivotal role in our ecosystem. Although they are the smallest species of living creatures by size, they are the most numerous ever. Studies have shown that the number of insects with their different species equals more than half of the number of other organisms In its various types, shapes, and different species; insects have a very large number of species, which is approximately thirty million different species, and this is at the level of the species that have not yet been classified. Insects belong to the range of eukaryotic organisms, and insects can live in all kinds of different environments and regions, even there is a percentage, even if a few of them, live in water areas.
According to experts, insects are harmful pests because they bite, bite, and spread diseases and compete with humans for food from plants. In most parts of the world, insects are food for humans. We get rid of trash, dead plants, and dead animals by eating them. The moths, flies and beetles is one of the most beautiful creatures.
Within the framework of the topic, the researchers believe that there is a need to study non-chemical methods to combat bedbugs insects, as a recent study revealed that bedbug insects in the United States have developed resistance to neonicotinoids, the most widely used insecticide in the world, and researchers confirm that although they found High levels of resistance to neonicotinoids in two regions within the United States, but that does not mean that bed bugs in the rest of America or the world are now resistant to chemicals, and Dr. Romero says that the latest study indicates that bed bugs are likely to It is not being effectively combated, by chemical means, in the near future.
Bed bugs are found in all continents except Antarctica, and it has been feeding people for thousands of years, while the spread of insecticides in the aftermath of the Second World War led to its elimination in various regions, but it reappeared as pesticide-resistant and flourished in homes with heating and in the connection areas of the baggage storage units in International travel field.
On the other hand, scientists succeeded in deciphering the genetic code of tick species, which is one of the most hated organisms that transmit Lyme disease, in a study that may lead to the development of new methods to combat these creatures that belong to spiders and feed on blood.
On the other hand, the results of a study published its results indicated that the favorable weather conditions in the breeding environments of royal butterflies in Mexico are expected to contribute to increasing their numbers to more than 100 million this year, which represents three times the numbers it was a few years ago.
The study, conducted by a researcher at the University of Texas for Agriculture and Mechanics, said that this increase is still below the target of one billion butterflies.
Royal butterflies are an icon of the region and distinguish themselves from other butterflies in the accuracy and consistency of their life cycle and the long distances and regularity of their annual migrations, and they love their striking colors after exiting from their cocoons covered with golden threads.
One of the most impressive festivals of butterfly festivals in the world is the immigration of the Royal Butterfly of 4,800 km in North America, when millions of these insects embark on a painstaking autumn trip from Canada in the north to Mexico and the coasts of California in the south. Royal orange butterflies pride in their veins. Black and white spots along the outer edges. The wingspan reaches a distance of ten centimeters and the body color is black. “It seems that the favorable weather conditions helped the butterflies during the winter because the weather was neither rainy nor cold because meeting the two workers together could be fatal,” said Craig Wilson, associate researcher at the university who works at the Center for Mathematics and Education. According to Reuters.
The number of royal butterflies decreased due to illegal activities to cut wood trees in forests, in addition to using pesticides that kill the lawn plant on which these insects depend on laying their eggs and feeding their juvenile larvae.
The disappearance of the cannabis plant is linked to factors, including the expansion of genetically engineered crops that can withstand herbicides that kill locally grown plants, including cannabis, and these insects are divided into two clans in the United States according to their autumn migratory patterns that migrate the first clan from the east to travel three thousand miles to Mexico Whereas, the West Clan cuts a shorter trip to California.
The mystery of mass emigration of royal butterflies remains unclear, while it is known that it directs itself using the position of the sun and the Earth’s magnetic field on cloudy days, but it is not clear how new generations of them find their way to winter season migration areas that they have not seen before.
Royal endangered butterflies face new obstacles during their annual migration, including torrential floods and hurricanes. As a result, these royal butterflies diverted from the natural path of their journey to find sanctuary in the valleys of Novo Leon, northern Mexico.
The American Fish and Wildlife Commission said that these butterflies may need protection under the American law to protect endangered species after losing the habitat (habitat) amid plantations, which led to a sharp decline in the migration activities of these orange and black butterflies.
On the other hand, researchers called a new scientific name for a short-legged spider living in the remote jungle of Oregon (Cryptomaster Behmouth), while insects chose to release the name of the American country singer Johnny Cash on a new type of spider, a black tarantula recently discovered. Below are the most prominent studies and research about the insect kingdom and its development.
