Bug Week 2022
UConn Extension is hosting the 8th Annual Bug Week from July 17-23. We are planning to have in-person events around the state. Keep checking the website to see what's buzzing! We’ll be posting more information sheets on trees, shrubs and perennials for pollinators.
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.
Let’s celebrate bugs this year by taking pictures of them for the photo contest and by improving the environment for them. Small changes to our yards and gardens can make big changes for the bugs.
