The Scandalous Sex Lives of Mites
There are more species of mites than anything else on earth, and almost as many weird ways that they have sex. Some male mites carry immature females until they grown up and are ready to mate, while certain females mate once and carry the sperm for their whole lives, impregnating themselves at any time. Hear these and more Barely Safe For Nerd Nite sex stories about the mighty mite!

Her first book The Year of the Mite chronicles a year-long infestation of her home and skin by the parasite Dermanyssus gallinae. Visit Jane at www.yearofthemite.com

Sex and the Amazing Survival of Earth’s Oldest Insect
From Peru to Fiji to California, Chris Beatty has explored the past and present of dragonflies. Get a quick paced review (guaranteed not to drag on) of the 325 million year long fossil record of dragonflies and find out what has made this extraordinarily persistent species so successful. Also learn about a dragonfly native to California that may be one of the oldest species still in existence.
