While on a camping trip with his father and T-Bob, Scott tests a bird caller that he built for a science project. Shortly after, their trailer is destroyed by a swarm of metal eating insects. Matt learns that those insects are called Roteks, a biological weapon for military purposes. One colony of Roteks is missing and the time until they multiply is running out quickly. M.A.S.K. is in for a race against time to find and capture the Roteks before that happens. But of course, V.E.N.O.M. also wants the Roteks...

"This is serious! I could be a bug's dinner any second."
"Ok Duane, M.A.S.K. is going into the pest exterminator business."
"First one to find a Rotek wins a brass ring... if the Rotek doesn't eat the ring first."
"I say, that doesn't look quite cricket."
"'Course those aren't crickets!"
"My holograms never miss. Now lets try this!"
"If those Roteks track me down, I'll be m - m-munched for lunch."
- "When the small are many, they are stronger than the strongest."
- After Matt Trakker approves the M.A.S.K. computer selection of agents, the computer says 'transmitting M.A.S.K. signal code' but we've already seen each agent receiving the call on their watches individually.
- During the overhead shot in the M.A.S.K. conference room, Matt Trakker is seen wearing his Rhino uniform. In the next shot it has changed to his Thunderhawk outfit.
- When Hondo McLean climbs onto the back of Buddy Hawks' motorcycle, Buddy's jacket is blue instead of purple.
