National Insect Week returns in 2022
Each year the Royal Entomological Society receives thousands of requests for help with identification.
These are a few of the annual highlights — distinct insects to look out for over the year.
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.
