DARPA wants insects to spread genetically modified viruses… to ‘save crops’

Researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology and the University of Freiburg in Germany, as well as the University of Montpellier, France, have published a critique of the program, dubbed “Insect Allies,” in the October 5 edition of Science. They argue that “the knowledge to be gained from this program appears […]

“Insect Apocalypse:” US Farmland 48 Times More Toxic To Insects Than 25 Years Ago

Tyler Durden, Zero Hedge Waking Times A new study shows how “insect apocalypse” is unfolding across America’s farmland since neonicotinoid pesticides were introduced several decades ago. Researchers found that farmland across the country is 48 times more toxic to insect life than 25 years ago, and neonicotinoid pesticides account for a large majority of the increase in toxicity. […]

U.S. Congress Votes for Pentagon to be Investigated for Using Insects as a Biological Weapon

by Aaron Kesel In a real-life X-Files episode, United States House members are reportedly concerned in a bipartisan vote that the Pentagon may have unleashed biological weapons or entomological warfare in the form of ticks or other insects that caused the spread of Lyme disease. Roll Call, a congressional-focused newspaper reports that on July 11th […]

U.S. Military Ordered to Reveal if Insects Were Used as Biological Weapon

US lawmakers have voted to demand the Pentagon discloses whether it conducted experiments to “weaponise” disease-carrying ticks – and whether any such insects were let loose outside the lab. A bill passed in the House of Representatives requires the Defence Department’s inspector general to investigate whether biological warfare tests involving the tiny arachnids took place over a 25-year period. […]

New Swiss Studies Claim 5G Increases Body Temperature of Insects. Old Research Claims 5G Causes The Same In Humans Along With Excessive Sweating.

The Swiss organization Pro Natura has published new studies, which indicate that the frequencies used by 5G increase the body temperature of insects. Are we taking another step against nature? Both insects and 5G need antennas: insects use them as an olfactory organ, and 5G use them to propagate waves, which are invisible, but […]

Insects Could Go Extinct Within a Century, With ‘Catastrophic’ Consequences for Life on Earth

Olivia Rosane, EcoWatch Waking Times More than 40 percent of the world’s insects could go extinct in the next few decades, according to a report that lead author Francisco Sánchez-Bayo told CNN was the first global review of the threats facing the class that makes up 70 percent of earth’s animals.

DARPA to weaponize insects to spread viruses across the population… sinister plans exposed by team of scientists

(Natural News) The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is working on an agricultural bio-weapon, and a team of scientists are speaking out about it.

This experimentation has largely been conducted in labs, whereas […]

Scientists Worried: Pentagon Wants To Make Virus-Spreading Insects

By Mac Slavo Scientists are voicing their concerns over the Pentagon’s idea of making virus-spreading insects. Funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the project involves using gene-editing techniques like CRISPR to infect insects with modified viruses that could supposedly help make America’s crops more resilient. For example, if a cornfield were to be hit by an […]

DARPA Plans to Spread Viruses Using Insects — Scientists Sound Alarm About the Dangers

A team of scientist sounds the alarm in a new Science Policy Forum report about a mysterious US government program that is developing genetically modified viruses that would be dispersed into the environment using insects. by Tyler Durden The virus-infected or ‘Frankenstein’ insects are being developed as countermeasures against potential natural and engineered threats to […]

Scientists Accuse DARPA of Genetically Modifying Insects for Bioweapon to Spread Agricultural Viruses

By Matt Agorist In a scathing report issued this week, researchers with the Science Policy Forum have accused the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) of creating a technology—ostensibly used to genetically modify crops with insects—but that could be converted into a dangerous and illegal bioweapon. The current program is being funded by the […]

‘Exploding’ ants discovered: Kamikaze insects kill predators with toxic… well, selves

The ‘colobopsis explodens’ was discovered by a team of international researchers who identified 15 separate species of exploding ants in the tropical rainforest.
