The Love Bugs tour is sold out. Please join us next year.
Love Bugs exposes the surprising reproductive tactics of insects and arachnids. Entomologist Dr. Ralph Charlton takes you on tour of the Arthropod Rearing Lab to reveal what goes on behind-the-scenes:
- scorpion flies give nuptial gifts,
- damselflies are jealous,
- tarantulas become entangled in dangerous liaisons,
- mantis females lure males they love to eat.
Meet at the entrance to the Botanic Garden at 11:50 a.m. Please bring a copy of your ticket or invoice with you. The tour starts promptly at 12 p.m.
