April 23: Insect Expo event teaches public about bugs

Posted by Scott Weybright | April 18, 2022
WSU’s Entomology Graduate Student Association (EGSA) hosts their annual public Insect Expo to introduce and educate the community about insects. The event features live insects people can handle, a pollinator table, hissing roach races, and other fun activities. This is free event for both kids and adults. Come learn more about bugs!

Two students sit at a table with cockroaches crawling on their hands. A sign on the table says  'cockroach derby'.
Madagascar hissing cockroaches are a popular attraction at the Insect Expo.

EGSA students will also be selling honey, t-shirts, hats, stickers, and more. Bring your kids, roommates, partners, and friends to play with some bugs. All the insects are non-biting and pretty cute. The Palouse Conservation District will be there talking about their upcoming City Nature Challenge.

The event is Saturday, April 23 from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in WSU’s Ensminger Pavilion.
