Meet our partners – Bug Girl

bug_girl_by_skepchickjillBug_girl has a PhD in Entomology. Her bug research involves using pheromones to try to control insect populations without pesticides. Essentially, she makes male bugs horny, and then prevents them from mating. (Please don’t extrapolate from that more that is warranted.)

After a decade or so as a professor, she decided to jump the academic ship and went on to be a designer, web mistress, and forensic consultant. She is now at a University in Connecticut, giving students (mostly) helpful advice.
