Benjamin C

The purpose of this project is to answer the question does light effect how water scorpion ambush their prey. I put three damselfly larva and one water scorpion in each container. Next, I put three containers in the light and three in the dark. Then, I recorded how many damselflies each water scorpion ate each day for ten days. Finally, I figured the average a water scorpion ate per day in the light and the dark.
