4-H Entomology Project
Learn to collect, identify, and possibly mount insects. Learn about insect’s individual traits and habitats, and their relationship with humans in their uses and control.
All project manuals are received through the Larimer County 4-H Extension office. These will be distributed to 4-H members through their organizational leaders (club leaders) after enrollment is complete. For more information on enrollment visit Join 4-H.
- Unit 1 – Level 1: Introduces the world of insects. Activities focus on how they look and move and provide some background for studying important entomology topics.
- Unit 2 – Level 2: Shows how to make insect collection tools, and expands on the basic concepts of biodiversity, invasive species, integrated pest management, and forensic entomology.
- Unit 3 – Level 3: Delves even deeper into the basic concepts and encourages youth to take control of their learning by doing their own research using the scientific method and reference materials.
E-log / Record Book
4 -H Record Books are also called e-Records. They can be downloaded from the State 4-H Website. Each project has its own record book that members are required to complete each year. The links to e-Records in the specific project areas are below. Record books are turned in at Interview Judging before our County Fair. In June, you will need to schedule an interview for each of your project areas and bring your record book with you to Interview Judging the week of the Larimer County 4-H Fair.
