Effect of herbs on insects(help D=)
 
Hi. I am not sure what insect I should work with. Anyone have any suggestions? Maybe even a vertibrate?

herbs? you'd want to try a certain disease or injury. You can try different herb's effects on worm regeneration. I know aloe is a possibility--apply aloe gel for worms, and see if the worm with aloe regenerates more quickly than the worm without alow.

thanks for replying but what I am thinking of is seeing if certain herbs effect the growth pattern but what I am not sure of is which kind of organism I should test.

does it have to be an insect?

I'm leaning towards insects because this year, you would have to sign tons of forms if it would be a vertabrate and also veratbates are sometimes hard to handle.

Another thing I remembered. Fruit flies are repelled or attracted to certain herbs, like clives, etc. If you put fruit flies in a U-shaped tube, and place certain scents at one end of the tube, you can see whether of not the fruit flies fly toward or away from that end.
