DNI: Hissing Cockroaches

Thursday, May 3, 6:00-7:00 pm

What is a Hissing Cockroach? Is it dangerous? Not at all! You won’t find these as a kitchen pest. Visit the Conservatory to meet these gentle bugs face to face. Find out where they come from, what they eat, how they live, and why they hiss. You can make a cockroach craft and enjoy a fun “buggy” treat, too! We’ll have live specimens of these sociable insects on display in our Bugs! exhibit, so you can get a good look at them.
