Fall Fauna

Each fall, a number of interesting insects comes into the biology department.  Why fall?  Insects reach their greatest size and numbers then, many insects drop from the treetops to pupate, and people are out in their gardens harvesting the crops.  We will try to picture some of the more common fall critters on these pages as they come in.

 Spiders!  The Hickory Horned Devil - a common fall caterpillar
 Bees, wasps & hornets
