Kristie Reddick and Jessica Honaker are two entomologists on a mission. They want people to think differently about bugs. Give them 15 minutes and they can change squeals of disgust into oohs and ahhs of wonder. Reddick and Honaker have master’s degrees in entomology from Texas A&M University and have traveled the world studying insects and arthropods. Honaker’s research has focused on aphids and the economic impact on pecan trees; while Reddick studies biodiversity and the distribution of camel spiders in Kenya, Africa. But a few years ago they turned their energy toward environmental science education. Under the moniker, The Bug Chicks, Reddick and Honaker take their menagerie of bugs to classrooms throughout the Northwest. They have produced a series of web videos teaching students of all ages about the world of arthropods and insects.
