Did you know that just five groups of insects dominate your garden? And can you tell the difference between bugs and beetles? As it's coming up to half term for many UK schools, we meet the 'Bug Five', learn how to tell them apart, and see beautiful drawings by Lindsay's former student, Pandora Dewan. You are encouraged to select your own Bug Five, by choosing your favourite representative of each of the five groups. Then you can decide whether Lindsay's Bug Five are better or worse than those selected by entomologist Liam Crowley. You can download Lindsay’s worksheet and see more of her 'Garden Biology' series here.
