We drove up to Gainesville for 4-H Insectathon training. I loved holding the tarantula. It felt weird but it was so cool.
We had a mini mock contest and I realized how much I have to learn. I did managed to learn a bunch of the orders of insects just during the session.
We got to tour the University of Florida Entomology department. This room was entirely full of cockroaches!
Then an entire room of mosquitoes!
This one Mom wouldn’t go near, bedbugs!
It was great to work with the kids from Alachua county.
At the end of the day we worked on a service project. We helped make terminate monitoring stations that will be placed around Jacksonville soon.
I came home and was excited to get to work on my bug collections.
