Quail Botanical Gardens’ Family Insect Festival is July 11, 12

The event features thousands of thousands of insects, lizards, snakes and the famous “Madagascar hissing cockroaches.”

Children 12 and under are admitted for free and can practice bug collecting, hands-on insect arts and crafts, and even taste cooked mealworm larva in flavors such as mesquite, teriyaki and barbecue.

More than 20 informational booths will be set up with entomologists and other bug experts on hand. Dr. Mike Glassey will bring his hawks and owls for close viewing.

The festival is sponsored by the County of San Diego Department of Agriculture Weights and Measures, Lloyd Pest Control and Quail Botanical Gardens.
