Michelle Gleeson is an author and entomologist. She is the Director/Presenter of Bugs Ed (, and in this workshop we will explore the amazing world of insects found in our gardens, including the good, the bad and the ugly! Tips on how to encourage beneficial insects and how to ward off the baddies will be covered as well as how to recognise and identify some of the common groups of insects found in our own backyards.

You will see amazing images, dead specimens and some live local insects and then a short “bug hunt” around the gardens will help us to put our identification skills into practice.

There will also be a Q&A session to finish and if you have any bugs you would like identified, put them in a jar and bring them along. Michelle will also have her new book for sale "Miniature Lives – identifying insects in your home and garden”.
