With Mario Bonneau and Dominic Ouellette, biologists and entomology technicians at Montréal’s Insectarium

Surrounded by bugs, pampering them, making sure they’re comfortable—that’s how Mario and Dominic spend their days! Come and meet these bug lovers, and visit the facilities that house the dozens of species of insects and arachnids they’re raising for the new Insectarium. Get an inside look at the Insectarium’s scientific collection at the Biodiversity Centre. But be forewarned! This experience will drastically change your perception of insects!

In French only.
