Yesterday was our second annual Bug Day.

We learned about beekeeping and sampled honey with Tim O’Neal of Borough Bees.

We learned about cooking insects, complete with tasting, courtesy of Small Stock Foods’ David Gracer.

We released ladybugs into the wild and had a meet-and-greet with some hissing cockroaches.

Entomologist Louis Sorkin showed off various critters and Craig Zammiello from the New York Entomological Society taught us about arachnids and tropical insects.

This is just a partial list of what went on at Bug Day.

Thanks to all who turned out.  We’ll see you next year.



Here are a few photos from yesterday.  See more in the NYSCI Flickr Pool.
