Blade: A flat, thin structure especially used of mouthparts and antennae. Blast: Plant disease similar to blight ; the common name for the sudden death of flowers, buds, or young fruit caused by disease.

Blastokinesis: All the displacements, rotations and revolutions of the embryo in the egg are collectively known as blastokinesis.

Beneficial Insects: Means insects that yield useful products such as bees, lac insects or silk insects; are parasitic or predaceous on harmful insects or other organisms or act as pollinators of useful crops.
This can be inserted to produce the following simplified equation: dN K−N = rN dt K The resulting rate of increase per unit time produces a typical sigmoid growth curve. When point ‘K’ is reached, population growth stops because death and emigration rates equal birth and immigration rates, and either the population crashes or a steady state is established. Cartridge: The part of a respirator which adsorbs fumes and vapours from the air before the applicator breathes them in. Catalyst Case-Making Insects: Many larvae construct tubes or shelters in which they live and from which they feed.
