Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club presents Insect Festival at SD Botanic Garden
The San Diego Botanic Garden’s Insect Festival took place July 25-26.
The Encinitas event featured thousands of fascinating creepy-crawlies, including live lizards, snakes and the famous Madagascar hissing cockroaches.
The festival was presented by the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club and sponsored by K&M Pest Solutions.
Bug collecting, interactive insect arts and crafts, as well as tasty cooked mealworm larva — in various flavors including mesquite, teriyaki and barbecue — were just some of the activities held at the Festival.
