4-H Entomology

There are more kinds of insects in the world than all other organisms combined. They live on the earth's surface, in the soil, and in water. Insects live in deserts, rain forests, hot springs, snow fields, and dark caves. This project will help you study insects and their relationship with people. You can also learn how to collect, preserve, and identify insects.
