Entomology has been a part of my life since I was a very small child, in fact I can not remember a time where I was not interested in both art and entomology! I started coming up with these comics as a blend of the two, and also to enter into the SciComm world. I want to share my knowledge of the insect world with others in a fun and enjoyable way! All of these comics have basis in real life, which is part of the fun of them, of course they also have a good deal of dark humor! Check out the Facebook Page for these comics and more!

Entomological basis for the comic: According to termite researcher Hannah Davis: Termites routinely cannibalise sick or injured colony members. This is a hygienic behaviour to eliminate corpses, they can safely eat a sick nestmate because they've got all kinds of neat antimicrobials in their saliva. First instar larvae (yes, that IS the correct term) are ADORABLE. They have oversized heads, frequently get knocked over. If it's sick, however, they aren't going wait for it to get better!
