Insect Night Walk

Lab director Meuti and Graduate Student Robin Bautista-Jimenez volunteered at the Entomology Department’s annual “Insect Walk” on Saturday July 22nd. Specifically we helped kids and their families create “Maggot Art” by dipping fly larvae into paint and allowing them to crawl around the paper. This new station was a big hit and not only provided a unique souvenir for the kids, but also gave us an opportunity to teach youngsters and their families about insect metamorphosis, locomotion and the ecological roles of flies.
