National Insect Week is HERE
Wednesday, June 20, 2018 - 08:30 to 23:00
Come and join us to look for Moths at Greno.
We will learn about Moths and their habitats with local expert Ben Keywood and set up a Moth trap to see what species we have at Greno Woods.
Whilst we are on site in at dusk we can look out for other nocturnal species and enjoy the peace of being outside in the evening.
To attend this event please register in advance.
Wheelchair users and People with limited mobility please contact organiser in advance
There are lots of contenders here – possibly the pretty red and blue rove beetle Paederus – very, very tiny amounts of its poison have been used to cure chronic ulceration in people. Ladybirds are pretty poisonous (and pretty) and can bleed foul-tasting poisonous brightly coloured blood from their knees.
