Newly Discovered Wasp Plugs Nest With Cork of Ant Corpses – Phenomena: Not Exactly Rocket Science
"For specific hints, you need to travel to the forests of China. There, Michael Staab from the University of Freiburg has discovered a new species of wasp that protects its young by stuffing the entrance to its nests with ant cadavers. The practice reminded him of European ossuaries—buildings like the amazing Sedlec Ossuary that are piled high and deep with human skeletons. In honour of these sites, Staab named the insect Deuteragenia ossarium. It’s the bone-house wasp." - imabonehead from Bookmarklet

Steatoda nobilis is a spider in the genus Steatoda, known in the United Kingdom as the noble false widow and often referred to as the false widow.
Arrived in England before 1879, perhaps through cargo sent to Torquay. In England it has a reputation as one of the few local spider species which is capable of inflicting a painful bite to humans, with most bites resulting in symptoms similar to a bee or wasp sting. - Halil from Bookmarklet

Call for killing of birds deemed health hazard splits conservationists - http://raptorpolitics.org.uk/2014...
Call for killing of birds deemed health hazard splits conservationists
A consultation by Natural England, the body that advises the government on the natural environment, has made the case for allowing people to destroy the birds‘ nests and remove their eggs, amid growing concerns that they threaten health and safety. - Halil from Bookmarklet
I bet we see an increase in bugs and mosquitoes now! Not sure what health and safety risks they pose, but we need birds to eat the mosquitoes etc. - Halil
That's right up there with our government putting a call out to hunt barred owls because they're threatening spotted owls. Or killing sea lions because they're eating endangered salmon. Never mind that humans are the reason that spotted owls and salmon are endangered to begin with. The stupidity with which people act out against nature is appalling at best. - Hookuh Tinypants
The article only really cites them as 'pests' to homeowners and farmers because they nest under roofs and eat crops and crop residue. Not really a health and safety problem, in my opinion. More of a nuisance issue. Sometimes when animals have sufficient populations and are lobbied as pests, the governing body will allow people to kill them indiscriminately. It is very common in the US with both birds and mammals. - Jenny H. from Android

Electromagnetic noise could set European robin adrift
The internal magnetic compasses of migratory birds can be disrupted by weak, man-made electromagnetic interference, according to a new study carried out by researchers in Europe. The unexpected effect was seen in European robins, which were unable to orient themselves in the presence of broadband, radiofrequency noise believed to be caused by AM radio and electronic signals. - Halil from Bookmarklet

Clues to why whales are not recovering in numbers in the Antarctic - http://www.wildlifeextra.com/go...
Clues to why whales are not recovering in numbers in the Antarctic
From these bones the study revealed that there was much more genetic diversity in that region than there is today. This lets scientists and historians know that some knowledge about whale behaviours in that area has been lost forever with the decimation of whale populations as a result of whaling. - Halil from Bookmarklet
“The waters around South Georgia Island were productive feeding grounds for great whales before whaling,” he said. “Yet they have not returned here in any numbers, despite nearly 50 years of protection. That suggests the possibility that the local population was extirpated, resulting in the loss of some cultural knowledge about the habitat.” - Halil

Changing behaviour to reduce consumption of illegal wildlife products in China - http://www.traffic.org/home...
Ideas discussed recognised the various ways in which public behaviour could be changed and a fully integrated approach was recommended that encompassed reducing consumer demand in concert with strengthened efforts to reduce the supply of goods into the market and protect species at source. - Halil from Bookmarklet
Meeting delegates identified key reasons why illegal wildlife goods are consumed, such as for corporate gift-giving, as health care tonics and treatments and as monetary investments. To address the drivers of such trade, mutual co-operation across a wide range of diverse sectors would be needed. - Halil

Alan Titchmarsh was sent a personal apology from David Cameron after a Cabinet minister called him a “complete muppet”. Mr Paterson’s comments came after Titchmarsh claimed that the horticultural industry had warned of ash dieback years before it was first discovered in Britain in February 2012, and that official advice to wash boots after visiting woodland was like “sticking a plaster on a broken leg”. - Halil from Bookmarklet
Extra news: Ash disease 'unstoppable' as it spreads to nearly every Irish county - Meanwhile, another tree-killer, Japanese Larch disease, has now been detected in 30 locations. Gougane Barra forest park in Co Cork has been laid waste by the disease, as a major outbreak there has led to 16,000 trees being felled. http://www.independent.ie/irish-n... - Halil
More than 750,000 trees have been planted across Wales, replacing larch trees felled due to disease, says Natural Resources Wales. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news... - Halil
