5th annual Arizona Insect Festival

The Festival will take place on Sunday, September 20, 2015, from 11 am to 4 pm at the University of Arizona.  More ant 20 booths in the Student Union Grand Ballroom, 3rd floor will offer theme-based interactive activities and exhibits about the importance of insects in our lives.

Please join members of the VIPER Institute at the Stings N' Things booth brought to you by the laboratories of Dr. Justin Schmidt, Dr. Warren Savary and Dr. Leslie Boyer.

Insects are tiny and often tasty – and they are in a big world with lots of big nasty things that want to eat them. But many ants, wasps, and bees have a trick to level the field: they can sting, too.  Come see insects, spiders and scorpions and learn about what happens when they sting.
