“A Bug’s Life” Insect Art by Kyle Bean
My house is invaded by ladybugs. Here’s what I learned from Wikipedia:
“they use pheromones as a means of communication during mating and hibernation. So powerful are these can be detected by others up to a 1/4 mile away. This helps ladybugs find each other and it lets future generations know of a good place to “camp out” for the winter. The pheromones don’t go away easily. The chemical “scent” can remain year after year, and not only on the outside of a structure, but also within the walls, where ladybugs tend to hide before emerging into your home. So, scrubbing pheromones off a house is a BIG task, if not impossible.”
Apparently, you can’t shake ’em.
Artist Kyle Bean certainly leads a bug’s life.
wow just beautiful, and oh so time consuming to accomplish! Thanx for this post…lovely!
A really interesting post, will definitely come back to visit this blog.
God meant some things to co-exist. Symbiosis. Community. Interdependence. Brain science tells us that our visual senses are merely a fraction of how we perceive the world around us – art included. Don’t fight the pheromones. Breath in the air!
Really interesting and clever sculptures.
