The Mother of Invention

This morning Shannon came into the lab to find this crafty humidifying chamber for our fly populations. Pans of water on the floor, A humidifier, and an eerily-suspended washcloth. Here in India, we don’t need climate chambers, as the temperature is almost always 25ºC inside and 60-80% humidity. So we keep our insects in a semi-chamber that is mainly to keep them contained and isolated. But for about 2 months of the year, the humidity drops down to around 30-40% during the days and we need to increase the humidity.  They say that necessity is the Mother of Invention, but I think it’s Hinal and Pavan 🙂
