About this event

About 11, 500 different insect species have been discovered in Ireland. What six-legged insects live in our cities? This Biodiversity Week join Entomology Curator, Aidan O’Hanlon, for a short online talk on the six-legged neighbours living in our cities!

It is estimated that almost 90% of all animal life forms are insects. They are found in almost every environment on earth, and a small number of species have been able to thrive in some of the least-natural areas on the planet – in the cities, homes and gardens of humans. Urban environments are home to a surprising cast of insect species – most are beneficial, others are a nuisance and fewer still are potentially dangerous. Insects from around the world often show up in urban environments, and a small number of these can settle down alongside humans.
