National Insect Week returns in 2020
(Ancient Greek - odontos = tooth)
Acrobatic aerial predators, and very large, grasping "raptorial" jaws to capture prey
National Insect Week encourages people of all ages to learn more about insects.
Every two years, the Royal Entomological Society organises the week, supported by a large number of partner organisations with interests in the science, natural history and conservation of insects.
