Herbivores eat plants, and plants defend their tissues. To overcome these plant defences, herbivores have evolved a variety of offensive strategies. Bram Knegt studies the costs and benefits of a recently described offensive strategy, defence suppression, in the herbivorous spider mite Tetranychus evansi.
