Event Details

Bad bugs, bad bugs, whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do when they come for you?

Catchy, eh? So are invasive insects! With the surge of modern industry and travel, animals, plants, and more can move from place to place easier than ever before. It’s a real problem, but with real solutions: us. This program focuses its lens on the state of NJ and five of the most impactful invasive insect species that now call the Garden State home. Join TBZ’s Educators to discover how YOU can help stop invasive species in their tracks.


This program is a 1.5 hours program, including time for Q&A with our expert Educators. The presentation will begin promptly, so please be on-time.

Program Dates:

  • Sunday, January 24 at 1 PM
  • Sunday, February 21 at 1 PM

Please note that both of these dates will present the same material and are not a series providing new information. Please only register for one of the sessions.


This program is recommended for ages 18+, but any who want to learn about invasive species and how to combat them are welcome to join! Each ticket is for 1 household, but please don’t exceed more than 5 people per individual ticket.

Fair warning! There are many pictures of insects in this presentation. If you have a trypophobia or entomophobia, this program may be a little difficult for you!
