← Insects are scared to death of fish

... One final point: there is no mention in the article of the flies even trying to fly away from the predator. This suggests to me that they were not distressed. This only leaves eustress as the cause of the shorter lifespan, unless there's something we're not being told about the insects' behaviour.
