Aquatic insects

Lakes, creeks, wetlands, and ponds are home to some marvelous creatures. Use this kit to collect and study macroinvertebrates, the insects who live in water for part or all of their lives. Which, and how many, of these animals are living in your water body can even help you understand how healthy it is.

Kit includes:

  • Small nets
  • Tubs for samples
  • Ice-cube trays to separate out insects
  • Magnifying boxes and glasses to inspect closer
  • Tweezers and spoons
  • Aquatic health evaluation sheets
  • An example lesson plan

Just add insects!
