Blog Profiles: Bug Blogs

Bug Blogs We Love - mediablog.prnewswire.com

I never considered myself a big fan of bugs, but recently I realized that I must be because I have two bug tattoos and think moths are some of the greatest living creatures on this earth (behind foxes, octopuses, and dogs).

If you’re curious to learn more about insects, check out these unique blogs.

1. What’s That Bug

I see bugs all the time that, frankly, scare me, so I end up with a collection of bug pictures on my phone. What’s That Bug is a blog that responds to readers’ letters and pictures to identify the bug in question.

Daniel Marlos, aka “The Bugman,” uses his blog to bring humans together with the natural world.

I really enjoy this blog because some of the people submitting have a genuine wonderment and enjoyment for bugs and it’s refreshing to see.

Posts I enjoyed: First Luna Moth report for 2019 and Beelike Robber Fly eats Japanese Beetle.

2. Charismatic Minifauna

The Charismatic Minifauna blog is run by Wired Magazine. Ph.D. entomologist Gwen Pearson goes by the name “Bug Girl” and is the Education and Outreach Coordinator for Purdue’s Department of Entomology. Through her writing, she is trying to help everyone discover a love for bugs.

Her blog posts have more of a narrative, magazine-style of writing that can make even bugs seem less creepy and crawly.

Check out these posts: Just Give Up. It’s Impossible to Bug-Proof Your Home and Hey Guess What Killing Bugs With Fire Is Still a Bad Idea.

3. Wild About Ants

Growing up, I had an ant farm themed like Disney’s “A Bug’s Life” that was made for children. I’m not sure what happened to it and honestly don’t know if it was humane (I was 6), but I did really enjoy it.

Roberta Gibson’s specialty is ants. This blog features up-close photos of different ant species and in-depth research about ants.

Posts I liked: Question for the Consult-Ant about Ant farms and Featured Myrmecologist: Dr. Kaitlin M. Baudier.

4. BugBlog

The photography on this blog is a real treat and I had to include it in the list.

BugBlog is run by biologist Africa Gomez who uses photography to document animal behavior. The photos on this blog are high-quality, up-close and personal images of different bug species which are quite vivid and beautiful.

Posts I loved: Painted Ladies, the world travellers and How do female dragonflies avoid male harassment?
