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.
In January 2014, after an intensive national search for an insect display provider, the Gulf Coast Exploreum Science Center in Mobile, AL selected Ryan "The BugMan" Bridge. Ryan provided over 2,500 insects, mounted in over 60 museum cases, as the accompaniment to their hosting of their 8-month run of the IMAX movie, "Butterflies". The images below show the amazing display of insects.
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.
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.
Bee swarms can be a huge hassle. In addition to teaching about bees, I can help rid you of them, as well.
Inspiring kids to take an interest in insects is exactly what I love to do.
The 8-page book focuses on the Kingergarten thru 1st Grade level and can be used to help teach young children to read. At only $3 each, this is a great book to read to your kids at bedtime!
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!
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 am available to teach a wide variety of educational programs, geared at multiple audiences. From elementary schools to retirement villages, I offer an educational, and entertaining, program for kids of all ages.
Kids love bugs … and parents love having a party for their kids that is not only highly entertaining, but educational, as well. You’ll love hearing your child squeal as they hold a giant hissing cockroach!
