More than one-million species. Only one Bug Fair happening at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. There are a variety of exhibitors so we can see everything from exotic insect collections to bug related products.

And, then there’s my favorite, the Bug Chef Cooking Demonstrations! Yum! Bug Chef Aly Moore says don’t squirm! She says bugs have been a dietary staple for millions of people around the world for centuries.  Have an open mind! Remember when people thought sushi was not an appropriate menu item.
