    Clue: The following STORY clarifies meanings of Biology and Insect vocabulary terms in the puzzle worksheet:

    Ellen keeps learning incredible facts about insects while exploring with James, Nancy and another scientist, Rachael. Their ENTOMOLOGIST is an INDEFATIGABLE worker and feels no TREPIDATION about being around huge insects. He has an INSATIABLE curiosity about how bees POLLINATE and the unique PROBOSCIS of the butterfly.
    The other INDUSTRIOUS scientist with us, concerned about safety, suggested QUARANTINE for the group of observers who were bitten. The idea of confinement indoors is the NEMESIS of every outdoor researcher. Upon leaving a SUBTERRANEAN cave with our geologist, James and Ellen sprayed a pungent INSECTICIDE that created an UBIQUITOUS odor.
    One day Greg joined a zoologist who, while on a NOCTURNAL foray, examined the EMBRYONIC LARVAE that were INDIGENOUS to the tropical landscape. In a few weeks they hoped to witness their METAMORPHOSIS and anticipated seeing many different IRIDESCENT hues on the nascent insects.
