    The synergy between an insect colony and a curious entomologist is described. Together they determine the relative preference of insects to over 80 woody species. The relationship between wood resistance and insect attacks and wood density and chemical composition of wood is also determined. Finally, a series of chemicals is tested to increase wood resistance to attack.
