As you beetle about your busy life this week, spare some time for the little crawlers that do so much for our world. It’s National Insect Week, which 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. Events are taking place all over the UK this week, so why not get involved?
If you’re feeling inspired, why not build a bug hotel or follow some of our Ten Tips for Wildlife?
