Thank you for all the entries naming insects for the competition to win the first copy of the new book.

However, there can only be one winner and the contest is just 24 hours young and someone has come forward to claim the prize. The correct answer is the humble BED BUG.

A global problem, the bed bug has afforded our winner the signed copy and much envy from fellow entrants.

Congratulations Agnela F from Goa in India.

Thanks again to everybody who entered.

(For the attention of Robert from Bowling Green, Kentucky: a mouse is not an insect but they can be very annoying all the same.)
