Tons of Information about Pests, Bugs, Insects and other creepy crawlies. Great to learn about this vital part of our ecosystem.
A lot of information about bees, including types of bees found worldwide and the history of bees. There is a section devoted to information on bees for kids. There is also a listing of factors affecting the decline of the bee.

Insects, they’re everywhere! The Insecta Inspecta team investigates termites, ants, bees, butterflies, beetles, fleasand many other insects with great scientific accuracy. The connections between history, science and art are clever.Comic bug cartoons sprinkled throughout the site offer unexpected entertainment along with genuinely well researched entomology. Insecta Inspecta World was built under the critical review of the Smithsonian Museum, NMNH for its 1999 Bugfest celebration on the Mall. The world is covered in bugs, so shouldn’t you know a little bit about them?
