Stand by your man? We're willing to bet these female roundworms wish they had thought twice before doing that.

Smell is a powerful sense, but just how powerful? These locusts may be key to helping us figure it out.

Don't let the beauty of the iridescent emerald ash borer deceive you, their presence in Colorado is proving very destructive.

Whether wooing potential mates or fending off predators, these colorful little fruit flies are using their unique markings to their advantage.

The habits of cockroaches, while sometimes unpleasant, have helped us better understand the past...even if that past involves dinosaur poop.

It's not the first time insects have appeared in advertising, but it's definitely one of the more clever uses. See how 4,500 ladybugs made a big impact.

The impact of invasive species can greatly alter our ecosystems. Learn just how big an influence they have on our health and our world.

A company out of the U.K. genetically modified fruit flies to help preserve the olive crop in Spain. Beneficial? Controversial? Ingenious? What's your take?

This may be one of the coolest, most interesting bugs we've come across to date. When you see their "hairdo," you'll know why.

Satisfy your curiosity and celebrate the scientific side of bugs with the people who know them best.
Introduction

Insects. Bugs. Creepy, crawly creatures. Some people fear them, but here at Orkin, we study them. We know that every creature has its place on the planet — whether they harm people or property, or help the environment thrive. We also know that the best way to control pests is to learn as much as we can about them in general, both the bad and the good. We’ve been studying bugs for 100 years — we even have scientists on our staff to ensure we keep science at the forefront of our work. We continuously take the insect insights we gain and apply them to our business, and we believe it’s made us better at what we do.

In studying bugs to better control them, we’ve found we’re fascinated by them too — they’re curious little creatures full of unexpected complexity. And that’s why we created The Ecologist: to celebrate the science and uniqueness of bugs.
