National Insect Week returns in 2020
Entomology at Home for National Insect Week
National Insect Week #NIW2020 on 22nd to 28th June 2020 will not involve physical events, to reduce the transmission of Covid-19 virus.
We hope you will join us in a virtual campaign to celebrate the little things that run the world.
Over the next weeks and months we will be expanding our online resources and activities, linking out to the many National Insect Week partner organisations, so that as many as possible can do entomology at home.

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.
