National Insect Week

Today (23rd June 2014) marks the first day of National Insect week. A week aimed at encouraging people to increase their knowledge of insects big and small that surround them! National Insect week is organised by the Royal Entomological Society (the study of insects). Locally and nationally there are going to be events organised such as bug hunts, glow-worm hunting and moth trapping! 

There are over 1 millions different species of insects that have been named and described worldwide. 

In the UK there are more than 24,000 species in the UK along and we can find these insects in all sorts of different habitats.

Insects can be pollinators, predators, pests, parasites and prey. But most importantly they can play an important part in conservation, food production, medicine and ecology

Whether we and applying creams and sprays to keep them away insects play an important part in day-to-day life. So get out there and explore them, and if you spot anything - send us a picture and let us know!!
