ST. PAUL — Bugs are their forte.

Insect experts from around the world meet this week in Minneapolis.

The insect conference at the University of Minnesota is drawing researchers from 19 countries, including the U.S., China, Brazil, Israel, Australia, France and Italy.

The researchers specialize in insect-eating insects, such as bees, wasps, ants and flies.

They have merged two conferences — one usually held in North America, the other in Europe — into a single event that begins Monday and runs through Friday. It's called the 1st International Entomophagous Insects Conference.
