But Japanese honey bees are different; they evolved along with the hornet, and have developed an incredible trick to kill the hornet scouts as soon as they find their hive. This venom is strong enough to cause serious illness, and even death, to humans; indeed, they are the most dangerous wild animal in Japan, killing around 40 people per year (more than venomous snakes and bears combined).

These looked like the meal worms I ate, but bigger… I wanted to step it up and push myself a bit further. According to Robert Sanders of the university's media relations department, Rosemary Gillespie, head of the UC Berkeley Essig Museum of Entomology, will use a new $2 million National Science Foundation ( NSF ) grant to study how the hexapods and chelicerates explored their environments and settled into new niches, and how that led to the eventual increase in biodiversity. "One of the most puzzling features of the high diversity of species on remote islands is that these species almost certainly arose from one or very few colonizers," Gillespie, who is also a professor of environmental science, policy and management, said. "How was variability regained after such genetic bottlenecks, and how did it give rise to ecological diversity? "The islands of Hawaii are a great system for exploring how biodiversity changes in response to ecological change because it provides a chronological sequence of habitats from 0 to 1 million years ago on the Big Island, and further back in time as we go on to the older islands," she added. "The basic question is, 'How do you go from an empty habitat on a newly emerged island to a complex mixture of populations like we see on the Big Island of Hawaii, where things are just starting, to a fairly discrete set of species like we see on Maui?'" To answer that question, Gillespie and her colleague will begin by collecting DNA from the five volcanoes that make up the island of Hawaii, which was colonized by insects and arachnids over the past one million years, Sanders said.
