Information that will be useful in the future...

Typical velocities of some insects:
Dragonfly: 15.6 mph
Hornet: 12.8 mph
Horsefly: 8.8 mph
Honeybee: 5.7 mph
Housefly: 4.4 mph
Damselfly: 3.3 mph
Scorpion Fly: 1.1 mph

So that range is ~700 centimeters per second down to ~50 centimeters per second. So somehow I need a response and trigger time somewhere around 1/700th of a second for the fast guys and 1/50th of a second for the slow guys if I'm going to be predicting just where they will be at... uhm... I've said too much already...
