Bug of the Month


"Bug of the Month" features insects and some other invertebrates commonly seen on the Boston Harbor Islands. Many of these species are not native to the islands, but they are now very abundant and widespread, and visitors are likely to see them if they take the time to explore the microwilderness. Enjoy!
