1 day to go to National Insect Week
Monday, June 25, 2018 - 10:00 to 17:00
Find out about insects living in dead wood, trees, meadows, and ponds at the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust Caerlaverock Wetland Centre.
See if you can spot some of the insects described in our daily trail!
Female water snipe flies Atherix ibis clasp each other and cluster in big round aggregations on the end of branches overhanging rivers – males entering the swarms are mated repeatedly until they die. The females then lay their eggs in to the water – and all die still in their tight aggregations.
