Welcome to the 4-H Entomology Project. It will introduce you to many new and exciting experiences. The Entomology Project is fun; it may help you prepare for the study of insects as your life’s work, or help you learn how important insects are in the lives of everyone.

Ask your agent or leader for a project book and keep complete and accurate records. This is an important part of the project. You may use additional sheets if necessary. Enjoy your project and plan to participate in 4-H Entomology Unit II.
