The rapid decline in the population of bees cannot be derived from a single factor. Like many environmental problems, the summation of several factors give rise to the problem that is the possibility of the extinction of bees. Although there may be a number of popular ideas about why bees’ populations are on the decline, some stand out above others. Things like parasites, chemicals, habitat destruction and changes, and reproduction issues all contribute significantly to a decline in the population of bees across the globe.
Introduction: Pillbugs and sowbugs are terrestrial isopods that belong to the order Isopoda and the arthropod class crustacean. According to the Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology, the terrestrial isopods have evolved from the marine forms. However despite the fact that they seek moist environments they must also avoid an overly moist environment (Journal of Insect Science, 2008). The two different species resemble one another phenotypically. However, pillbugs are a dark gray and the sow bugs are a light gray with posterior projections. Pillbugs also curl into a ball when they feel endangered and the sow bugs do not. The pill bugs used in this experiment were female. Isopods primarily live in dark, damp habitats in order to prevent dehydration (Isopod Behavior Lab). The purpose of this experiment was to determine the type of environment isopods prefer. First we tested to see if the isopods preferred a dry or moist environment and then we tested to see if they preferred the potting soil or the leaf litter environment. For the observation of isopods in response to moisture experiment it was said that each of the two different species would prefer a different environment. For part two, Observation of Isopods in response to other variables, it was hypothesized that the Isopods would prefer the potting soil or the leaf litter environment.
Bed Bug Control Once thought eradicated in the United States, bed bugs have made a comeback in recent years. Contrary to what some people believe, bed bugs are seldom a reflection on the cleanliness of the property. Bed bugs have been found in expensive hotels, upscale boutiques, hospitals and airplanes as well as movie theaters, taxis and libraries. They may be brought home from a cruise or a train ride.

Vladimir Mayakovsky's “The Bedbug,” written in 1928-1929, appears to satirize the New Economic Policy. Mayakovsky separates his play into two acts to demonstrate two contrasting ideas, and the idea to stop the progressing bureaucracy from being a participant in the fight for communist power. In “The Bedbug,” Zoya Beryozkina is a working class woman who is rejected by Prisypkin; he abandons the working class world to marry a bourgeoisie woman in the effort to advance himself in society. After attempting suicide, Zoya seems to be quite fine fifty years later when they unfreeze Prisypkin from the past. The first half of the play ends with a tragic fire killing everyone in its presence, with one man unaccounted for. Ironically the only people to survive and advance are Zoya, the working class woman who attempts suicide in scene two, and the people who are associated with the working class. These two acts reflect the removal of the apparatchiks who took advantage of the resources supplied to them by the working class. This is demonstrated in scene one when
