National Insect Week returns in 2022

National Insect Week 2020 is Here!



This year National Insect Week 2020 is encouraging everyone to discover the insects in their gardens, parks and green spaces – to take photos, create art, identify species and celebrate the insects all around us.

The National Insect Week website has videos, competitions, interviews and resources for all ages, a one-stop-shop for entomology, the study of insects.

The week is a unique initiative to promote awareness of insects and their importance in the UK and around the world. It is organised by the Royal Entomological Society, supported by thousands of people and partner organisations up and down the country.
