DIY Insect Collecting Gear!

by The Bug Chicks

Parents and teachers! Want to collect insects but don't have the tools? A couple of years ago, we teamed up with Junior Master Gardener and the Borlaug Institute to create insect nets, a Burlese funnel and aspirators out of common household items! These videos are based on activities in the fabulous JMG workbook.
