Bess beetle moisture tolerance

Kylee S

We did an experiment on if bess beetles like moist environments or not. Our data was inconclusive. We think this is because that they live in very moist environments because their behavior was indifferent in each container.

We measured when and why a bess bug squeaks. We found that it seemed to squeak when it was distressed and/or scared.

This experiment is about Bess Bugs and how fast they can travel. This experiment is going to measure how fast a bess bug that is 1 inch long and weighs 1.4 to 1.7 grams can travel 1 meter.
