Scientists at a Georgia laboratory have developed what could be a low-tech, low-cost weapon in the war on terrorism: trained wasps.

The tiny, non-stinging wasps can check for hidden explosives at airports and monitor for toxins in subway tunnels.

"You can rear them by the thousands, and you can train them within a matter of minutes," says Joe Lewis, a U.S. Agriculture Department entomologist. "This is just the very tip of the iceberg of a very new resource."

I heard about this on the radio the other day, and was instantly interested, I hope some one can give some more info on this, it sounds very X-filesish but interesting. Various animals senses are so much more sensitive than our own, it is well within the realm of possibility.
