Entomology

Insects and bugs and other yucky stuff.
From Wikipedia:

Entomology (from Greek ἔντομος, entomos, “that which is cut in pieces or engraved/segmented”, hence “insect”; and -λογία, -logia) is the scientific study of insects. At some 1.3 million described species, insects account for more than 2/3rds of all known organisms, dating back some 400 million years, and have many kinds of interactions with humans and other forms of life on earth, so it is an important specialty within biology. Though technically incorrect, the definition is sometimes widened to include the study of terrestrial animals in other arthropod groups or other phyla, such as arachnids, myriapods, earthworms, and slugs.
