Insects as Weapons of War, Terror, and Torture

Once in awhile I run into an article that I find fascinating.  I was just alerted to this article from Annual Review of Entomology, 2012, vol. 57, 205-227, Insects as Weapons of War, Terror, and Torture by Jeffrey A. Lockwood, Department of Philosophy and MFA Program in Creative Writing, University of Wyoming, Laramie, Wyoming 82071

If you have a few moments, I recommend this excellent review.  Here is a snippet from the abstract:

For thousands of years insects have been incorporated into human conflict, with the goals of inflicting pain, destroying food, and transmitting pathogens.

There is also a related video.  For all you folks who love or hate six-legged creatures....
