:shock: Good Q, Philip. :clap: :clap:

Pseudocopulation either refers to insects obliviously mating with deceptive flowers, which then achieve their own fertilisation; or it describes external mating methods, such as that used by frogs or starfish.

Nature is more manipulative and deceptive than any human could contemplate. :shock: But, all in the name of propagation of the species; if she wasn't so persistent and irresistible, there'd be no species for her to gloat over. :wink:

Which insect erupted over the Mooiplaas area in the Kruger National Park some time ago and managed to reach phenomenal plague proportions over the Mooiplaas ranger section and especially the ranger’s house and staff living quarters?
