The Big Question: "Are mosquitoes good for anything, or are they just annoying?"

Synopsis: Harrison visits an entomologist who explains to him how insects that eat insects can replace the poison farmers use to keep bad bugs away from their crops. Harrison is joined by a biologist who puts on a fascinating show and tell with all kinds of live bugs. He then puts school kids to the test by asking them to eat everyday products that most of us don't realize guessed it...bugs! And viewers find out that a lot of household products are made using insects (everything from carpets to lipstick!).

My Great Challenge: Harrison sets up a faceoff between Team Bee and Team Butterfly to see who the best pollinator is!

In the Field: Our roving correspondent Sidney visits a food scientist and a chef who cook her up a tasty bug stir-fry!
