The Amateur Entomologists' Society is a partner organisation in National Insect Week. National Insect Week is organised by the Royal Entomological Society and runs every other year, it features a week long series of events promoting insects that take place across the country. Previous events included moth trapping, butterfly walks and a dragonfly day. It's the perfect time to meet some of Britain's most fascinating creatures close-up.

National Insect Week first took place in 2004 with a high-profile launch at the Natural History Museum in London. The launch included interviews with young entomologists by Steve Backshall from the BBC TV programme The Really Wild Show.
