The "Bug of the Month" articles were written to alert insect lovers (a.k.a. ent-thusiasts) to interesting Pacific Northwest insects to be observed at the time of year they were published. (Some species included are not season-specific). The articles are listed below in publication order, with the month and year of the original newsletter issue. More articles will be added from time to time; maybe even an index some day. Click here to learn about our industrious authors!
