A Bug Life

One topic that has come up a number of times on this blog is the importance and value of getting outside. In fact, a recent entry talked about preparing summer outdoor activities for children.

Still, one thing about the outdoors many people dread is having to deal with what we typically call "bugs," especially the ones that bite and/or sting. To help with this concern, the National Wildlife Federation is providing some tips for interacting with bees, wasps, mosquitoes, and ticks.

The information is great for making outdoor experiences safer and for appreciating the role insects and other crawly things play. With this knowledge, we might be able to build a more positive relationship with these species and enjoy our nature outings a little more.
