Mother Nature's Miracles
Perfect for Classrooms, Youth Camps and Birthday Parties. This exciting and informative program is based on teaching about basic Entomology.

Gulf Coast Exploreum
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.
I've Got Bugs!
Ryan Bridge "The BugMan" has been using LIVE insects to help teach a variety of audiences about the cool world of Entomology. Insect will always draw a big crowd.

"Hands-On" is the key to the excitement of this unique exhibit and the reason that people enjoy it so much.
Black Widow and Wasp / Hornet
Black Widows can be a potential problem in Central Pa, so I help people remove them from their property and then use the live spiders in educational programs. Wasp and Hornet nests can be a huge problem for almost anyone. In addition to teaching about them, I can remove them and make life a little less stressful.
