Don't Mean to Bug You...

I'm sorry for the terrible pun, but this site was too good not to write about. is a great site for all of your bug needs. As a young lad, I used to search the yard high and low for creepy crawlers and put them in my little bug catcher my Dad made. I would then search the Encyclopedia looking for pictures that might match the bug I was holding hostage. :-) offers an entire library of information on every type of insect you could think name. It will supply you with the Order and Family name of the bug as well as assorted pictures. A nice biography of each insect is provided to give you important information. This site could be very helpful to science teachers or parents of adventurous children. even provides an Bug of the Week. This could be used by parents or teachers as a way of engaging students in the different types of insects in the world. They could use a map and locate where the bugs are found and see how diverse the world's ecosystem truly is. is just another fun and useful site designed to educate children about the things they love most. Take a look around and see if you can use it in your classroom or home.
