To read the full Berberis sawfly larva story, click here and scroll back through the posts. Tip: It’s a long (but thrilling!) story, and includes the Natural History Museum in London and a World First for me here in Heslington. You might want to brew a cuppa before you embark on the saga …

Alternatively, if you want to hear all about it in person, then I’ll be telling the tale (the abbreviated version!) as part of my Buzzing! show the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition in London this coming Saturday (5 July) from 1pm. Entrance is free. No need to book. See you there!
