Chloe B, Ariel I, Jose G, Karla C, Jasmine S, Riley K, Blake U
Two insects that seem to overwhelm us with their presence in the fall are the subject of this groups display. Hundreds of Asian Lady Beetles and Boxelder Bugs seem to gather on our windows and doorways. This display will feature some larger than life models of each insect. We will also be describing the insect's life cycle, explaining why they seem to be overpopulated during parts of the year, their usefulness and any possible techniques for keeping them out of our homes.
