Modern Entomologic book of the early twentieth century by the physicist and botanist Jean-Henri Fabre. He is considered by many to be the father of modern entomology.
Does the insect know beforehand the sex of the egg which it is about to lay? When examining the stock of food in the cells just now, we began to suspect that it does, for each little heap of provisions is carefully proportioned to the needs at one time of a male and at another of a female. What we have to do is to turn this suspicion into a certainty.
