Forensic scientists studying bugs, such as maggots on corpses, can play a vital role in solving criminal puzzles. OK, so bugs don’t actually solve crimes…..Forensic entomology is the science of studying insects at a crime scene. The contents of a maggot’s tummy, for example, can give clues as to how long a body has been decomposing. Catching flies may be a bit more difficult!
