About Andrew


Hello, my name is Andrew Pugliese. I am an 12 year old homeschooler who lives outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I have been collecting and keeping bugs alive since I was 4 years old.

My two brothers, who are ten and six years old, help me find bugs. A bunch of the photographs in this blog were taken by my Mom, who takes amazing pictures.

All bugs are extremely important to the ecosystem. For example, bees pollinate flowers so we can have food. My personal favorites are Praying Mantises because they have so much personality. I once had a Chinese Mantis that every time I let someone hold him, he flew right onto my face.

The reason for this blog is because I want everyone to understand just how important bugs are. We couldn’t live without them. Bugs are fascinating creatures
