Bug Month

UConn Extension is hosting the 6th Annual Bug Month virtually in July.  Keep checking the website to see what's buzzing! We’ll be posting butterfly and moth descriptions as well as fact sheets on problem bugs such as the Emerald Ash Borer and Brown Marmorated Stink Bug.

You will even be able to follow the life cycle of beautiful Luna moths!

Bugs are the unsung heroes of our ecosystem. They pollinate our crops and gardens, prey on pest insects, and aerate soils by breaking up decaying material to recycle nutrients.

Lets celebrate bugs this year by taking pictures of them for the photo contest and by improving the environment for them.
