Interesting study. Either they have somehow evolved to live shorter lives (periodic/fortnightly events?) Or there are persistent stressors, which would be interesting to study persistence of, by continuing their breeding cycle in the lab (idk if that's possible or practical).

Is 50 years really long enough to allow insects to evolve noticably?

Doesn't it depend more on breeding ftequenct and less on absolute time period?
