African Armyworm


This week, we discover the genes behind a longer life and the earliest remains of complex life here on Earth. We also investigate how drilling into a volcano could tell us more about its activity and we hear how pheromone traps are being used in villages across Africa to forecast and control outbreaks of the African army worm. Plus, we investigate why an electric toothbrush can make things a bit distorted, in Question of the week!
