Happy National Insect Week!

It’s National Insect Week in the UK this week. For our part, there will be an open house on Thursday and Friday afternoon from 12:30-4:30. Come see what entomologists at the Natural History Museum are up to and do. I’ll be there preparing crowd pleasing large and colorful beetles, talking about preparation, the importance of well prepared specimens in active scientific collections to preserve and conserve the condition of the specimens as best as possible and the exciting world of field work.

Happy National Insect Week everybody!
