National Insect Week returns in 2020

Bug bonanza at Erddig

Friday, June 29, 2018 - 10:00 to 17:00

Our house team is always on the hunt for bugs that could damage our collection. With 10 to find, join the trail to see if you can spot our big bugs hiding in the rooms of the house.

The outdoor trail features both welcome and unwelcome garden guests with 10 in total to find. Look out for our information panels to find out more about the good, bad and the ugly.

See if you can spot our two new insects including a hummingbird hawk moth and a sabre wasp.
