Ryan "The Bug Man" Bridge
My name is Ryan Bridge, and I am "The Bug Man" due to my passion for Entomology and most of all teaching people about insects while keeping it fun and exciting!Learn More »
For over 30 years I've had a passion for Entomology and I'm eager to share it with others. I travel throughout central PA and Maryland, doing a wide range of fun and educational programs, using LIVE BUGS!!
I've Got Bugs!
Ryan Bridge “The BugMan” has been using LIVE insects and Arthropods to help teach Entomology throughout south central Pennsylvania since 1995. Insects will always draw a big crowd. This 10‘ x 10‘ stationary exhibit consists of several tables with both LIVE and preserved insects and Arthropods, many being the largest species in the world. “Hands-On” is the key to the success of this unique exhibit and the reason people enjoy it so much.Learn More »

Mother Nature’s Miracles
Perfect for Classrooms, Youth Camps and Birthday Parties. This exciting and informative program is based on teaching about basic Entomology. Mostly a “show-n-tell", Ryan Bridge “The BugMan” explains how insects play an important role in the world and details their anatomy, life-cycle and defense tactics. Ryan will then introduce the audience to LIVE insects (many of which are the largest species in the world) and will encourage everyone to touch or pet the mini-beasts.Learn More »
Black Widow & Bee Swarm Removal
Black widows are a major program in Central PA, so I help people remove them from their house. I employ an 'eco-friendly' approach, so I catch the black widows instead of killing them with chemicals.Learn More »
Bee swarms can be a huge hassle. In addition to teaching about bees, I can help rid you of them, as well.
“The BugMan” uses 100′s of REAL bugs to keep audiences entertained, while providing an educational experience. He also brings LIVE INSECTS, spiders and even scorpions to make the day complete and encourages everyone to touch or pet some of the largest species of insects in the world! A “Bug Themed” Birthday Party, is a great way to hav a unique event!Learn More »
