Heather's Best Buggy Tips

To find your own "bad boys": 

  • Get down and dirty:  I lay down on the ground close to bugs.
  • Gently turn over logs or rocks:  I put them back when I'm done.
  • Leave on a night light: Later, I check to see who has visited. 

If you are really good:

  • Don't catch them: I spy on them instead.
  • Catch them in the act: I sketch or write about them in my journal.
  • Visit the same spot over and over: I discover who lives in the neighborhood, sneak down their trails after them, peak in on them eating dinner. 


​​​​​Bugs who burp. 

Bugs who slurp.

Bugs who eat their siblings!
