National Insect Week returns in 2020
The following series of games/activities can be incorporated into a guided walk or used as stand alone wood ant games at an event or a nature club. Activities are played out at fixed points along the walk. It’s preferable but not necessary to have access to a wood ants nest. However, once wood ant activities have been interpreted through these games, appreciation will be greater should there be opportunity to watch real wood ants going about their business.
Insects can have interesting mating behaviours including specific calls, movements and gifts.
