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.
Insect Week encourages people of all ages to learn more about insects.
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.
