'I Have No Idea What This Is': The Bug Show

How many times has the sight of long antennae, a shiny exoskeleton or a frenetically flying insect prompted the phrase, "What is that?!"

We have two experts in bugs and insects with us to help you identify the odd, exotic and beautiful creatures you're noticing around you, and advice on staying away from the one that bite and sting. Also, the important and fascinating ways that insects make our ecosystems thrive.  We're all about bugs with conservation biologist Kent McFarland and field naturalist Bryan Pfeiffer!
