Searching for Minibeasts
You can find Minibeasts almost anywhere, so why not get out in your garden or local park or woodland or come to Bennachie to see what you can find! Minibeasts live in all sorts of habitats, many prefer dark, damp spots in gardens and woods.
The Woodland Trust has put together some great advice for going on a bug hunt, and they have a great Minibeast Hunt checklist for the creatures you might discover!
- Under stones and logs to find woodlice and millipedes.
- The cracks in tree bark and and deadwood to find beetles and spiders.
- Leaves for caterpillars and ladybirds.
- After the rain is a great time to spot the slimes-slugs, snails and earthworms.
