Purdue Extension: Expert Resources for COVID-19

Entomology 4-H Project

March 24, 2020

There are more kinds of insects in the world than all other organisms combined. They live on the earth's surface, in the soil, and in water. Insects live in deserts, rain forests, hot springs, snow fields, and dark caves. This project will help you study insect and their relationship with people. You can also learn how to collect, preserve, and identify insects.

Check the 4-H Handbook for complete exhibit details.


Members are required to complete ONE General 4-H Record Sheet per year which will include all projects that the 4-H member takes for the year.

Project Manuals may be requested through the lending library.  (Only Cats, Dogs and Small Pets require manuals).  Visit the 4-H Online Homepage to find directions for requesting manuals.
