Did you know that we share our planet with over 1 million species of insects?

That’s a lot of insects! Scientists are discovering new insects almost every single day.

Entomology & Home Schooling

Here at BioQuip, we provide an array of products related to exploration and education in the world of insects. The study of insects is called Entomology (en•to•mol•o•gy). Young people might be taken aback or completely fascinated by insects, this makes them the perfect tool for capturing and holding their attention.

Educational Fun & Games

Parents and teachers sometimes, discourage childrens interest in insects by suggesting that they are dangerous and might bite or sting. This is unfortunate because children grow up with no general knowledge of their vital roles as pollinators, recyclers, and part of the food chain. By channeling their natural curiousities you can help them learn the difference between harmful and non harmful insects and help them find the answers to their basic questions. All while having a really good time!

Did you know that insects don’t have bones or a backbone like us?

Insects are an invertebrates. That means they have a hard exoskeleton, or shell, on the outside of their bodies that protects them.

Insects are everywhere and can be observed and collected in nearly every habitat all over the world. As a group, their tremendous success can be attributed, in part, to their diversity and ability to adapt to a wide-range of environments. Because of their sheer numbers (over one million described species) insects impact our lives daily. They compete with us for food, they can carry diseases, and they impact our renewable resources affecting our economy. But insects are major benefactors too, controlling other insect pests, pollinating a wide variety of crops, and recycling organic matter. Insects have been reviled in movies and extolled in art, music, and literature.

Insects can be used in many ways, for all grades to highlight almost any subject, especially science. Browse through all of our products to find different toys and educational materials to supplement your curriculm.

Did you know that butterflies taste with their feet?

We taste with our tongues but insects don’t have a tongue. Instead, they taste with their antennae or their mouthparts. At least, most of them do.
