National Insect Week returns in 2022

Brilliant Bugs with National Museums Scotland

It’s National Insect Week from 22 – 28 June 2020 and we’ve got great activities to get you out and about, exploring the incredible world of insects and other invertebrates.

Make a bug hotel to make your outdoor space more bug friendly, create a beetle or butterfly out of recycled materials, go on bug safari on your home, garden or out on a walk and catch live bugs by making a simple pitfall trap.

Hottest and most explosive

Bombardier beetles spray boiling phenolic liquid at predators like shrews, at several squirts per second!
