Chronicle of the attempts to weaponize insects, from ancient bee bombs and poisonous honey, torture in the ""bug pit"" of Bokhara, wasp venom tipped arrows, flinging flea infested dead things into besieged cities (they may not know HOW it works, just that it DOES), Japan's Unit 731, Hitler's scheme to use Colorado Potato Beetles on British agriculture, DDT in southern Italy, scorpions in Viet Cong tunnels, ecoterrorists and Medflies in California, spiders with microcameras, bees trained to detect landmines and the potential for weaponizing West Nile virus as spread by mosquitoes.
