Amateur entomologists society
The Amateur Entomologists' Society (AES) is one of the UK's leading organisations for people interested in insects. Entomology involves learning about insects and the environment.
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.
