Forensic Entomology: Using Bugs to Solve Crimes

The first known murder investigation to solve a crime with insects took place in the 13th century.  Join Barnstable County’s Entomologist, Larry Dapsis, for a tour of criminal and civil investigations of the art and science of using insects.  Insects are phenomenally interesting and accurate detectives and have solved crimes where conventional techniques did not. Suitable for adults (might be a bit too creepy for kids).
