Young Entomologists were introduced to the newest members of Queens Library at Steinway this week.
The extra large beetles are called Bessbugs. These adorable insects help the Earth by recycling decaying trees in the forest. Our beetles are fed small pieces of rotting wood to simulate their natural habitat in their observation tank.
Meet and greet our beautiful bessbugs every Wednesday from 3:30-4:30 in the children's story nook at Steinway Library.
