Betty Faber

Entomologist Betty Faber studies insects. Her friends call her "Betty Bug" because she spends most of her time studying cockroaches. She admits that she was scared of flying cockroaches when she was a girl. Betty turned that fear into curiosity. She's learning how cockroaches have managed to survive for more than 250 million years. See Betty work with bugs in DFTV Show 212.
