Predators beware! The tiny bombardier beetle sends out a repeated blast of hot toxic fluids wutg steam and water at 500 cycles per second using a sophisticated valve system. The innocuous-looking insect is thus able to spray a spider, frog, ant, or bird and stun its opponent. Furthermore, the beetle can aim its weapon in any direction (even over its head) with its spray. Professor McIntosh shows that the bombardier beetle has inspired a number of practical applications including fuel injectors, pharmaceutical sprays, perfumes, and fire extinguishers.
