Douglas Tallamy returned from an insect-collecting trip in April to find a message on his answering machine. Being a professor of entomology at the University of Delaware, Tallamy often goes bug hunting. Being a human being, he often gets phone messages. The messages, however, never before included threats from lawyers.
How the lawyers discovered Tallamy dates back to another trip, taken three years ago. "I had driven through the tollgates after the Delaware Memorial Bridge, and they had bug zappers," he said. "And I remember sitting there and watching the bugs get zapped."
