It's National Pollinator Week: Do You Know Where Your Bee T-Shirts Are?

EGSA's 2018 t-shirt winners: Brendon Boudinot wearing his t-shirt,

You've heard the phase, "wear your heart on your sleeve"--which means to show your emotions openly. How about wearing a pollinator on your heart? It's National Pollinator Week. The UC Davis Entomology Graduate Student Association (EGSA) offers a...

"The Beetles" t-shirt is the EGSA's all-time best seller. Instead of the English rock band John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Star crossing Abbey Road in single file (that's the iconic image on the cover of their album, Abbey Road), think of The Beetles (four insects) crossing Abbey Road in single file. Beneath the images of the beetles are their family names: Phengogidae, Curculionidae, Cerambycidae and Scarabaeidae. Think glowworm, snout, long-horned, and scarab beetles.
