Insect Training and More

This weekend we went to Gainesville to University of Florida to learn about the new 4-H Insectahon program. I had a great time learning new skills. I even got to hold a tarantula. 

We got to tour the entomology department and learn about their urban pest management program. This room was full of cockroaches!

Another room was dedicated to mosquitoes.

Another to ants! EEK!

One room was full of a grad students project on bed bugs.

It was fun to meet the kids from Alachua County and learn along with them.

We even worked on a termite monitoring station project. I helped Dad mark so he could melt holes int he clipboards. Mom and B worked on another part of the project.

Sunday we spent in Venice at Grandma and Grandpa’s house. We hiked around the lake and caught some bugs.

Then we spent the afternoon in the pool!

Monday was dentist day. My first trip to the adult dentist. I really enjoyed it and got to pick from the treasure box at the end.

Sadly I spent he evening and next day not feeling well. Mom figured at some point I was milking the sickness and brought in my schoolwork. Busted! I suddenly felt better and had no time for school.

I found this cool rock at the park!
