National Insect Week returns in 2020

Moths at Glencoe

Friday, June 15, 2018 - 22:00 to Saturday, June 16, 2018 - 11:00

Explore the weird and wonderful night fliers of Glencoe and join us at the Visitor Centre on Saturday morning to find out what moths have been caught in our harmless light trap that we’ll set out around the visitor centre the night before. There’ll be some marvellous moth crafts for children too!

If you like why not join us the evening before to help us set up the light trap. We’ll meet at the Visitor Centre just before sunset at 10pm on Friday 15th June. Our rangers will be on hand with bat detectors too and hopefully we’ll be able to hear and see the local bat population emerge from their roosts.

Wear warm clothes and it is advisable to bring midge repellent, midge net, torch and sunglasses (as the light traps are very bright!)

Shapely antennae

Antennal shape reflects insect ecology, male moths have feathery antennae to detect female pheromones at night.
