    Insect Fair: Encinitas Abuzz
    Rachel Cobb
    Adore ladybugs, beetles, and other critters of wee size? Be at the San Diego Botanic Garden on July 22 and 23, 2017.

    SAM, THE GIANT GALAPAGOS TORTOISE... will also make a cameo at the festival, which is presented by K&M Pest Solutions. True, a Galapagos tortoise is rather larger than a ladybug, but we'll state, with some confidence, that fans of one will be fans of the other. In fact, other reptiles will make a showing at the Encinitas spread, including lizards and snakes, so if insects and lizards are two of your faves, you are absolutely going to score a "More Than One Cool Thing" kind of day. How to get in and get to all of this lavish lizardness and lively ladybug-a-tude? Just pay admission to the 37-acre garden, or be a member. Now, time to decide if you want to taste cooked mealworm larva. Or, if you're so curious about it, the cooking station'll be your very first stop.
