Do you sleep with bugs?

What is the impact that bed bugs are having on people. How do you get them, and how do you get rid of them?

What color does the Painted Lady Butterfly prefer?

Paige G, Mackenzie S, Mac F

In this project we are testing to see which colors the butterflies prefer. We are testing yellow, green, purple, and orange. This will allow us to detemine what type of plants butteflies prefer and we could plant flowers that would attract this type of buttefly.

Will the termites follow a trail?

Connor B, Sam F, Sarah P

We are giving the termites 3 color/pen options (black pen, blue pen, and a green marker)to see how well they will follow the trail. We will test the termites ability to follow a straight line and a curvy line.
