Entoblitz is an insect-collecting weekend hosted by the Texas A&M Entomology Graduate Student Organization. At Entoblitz we invite together the broader community of professional and amateur entomologists from throughout Texas and the adjoining regions. Through the collecting activities, Entoblitz Texas allows us to fill gaps in our knowledge of Texas insects by targeting localities and habitats for insect collecting that are under-represented in the insect research collections of Texas.
Entoblitz is open to anyone interested in insect collecting, or spending a weekend with insect collectors. This includes professional entomologists, insect hobbyists, friends and family.
This year's Entoblitz will be held on April 19-21 at Lake J.B. Thomas in Scurry County. Lake J.B. Thomas is a man-made reservoir located in the Southwestern tablelands ecoregion of west Texas.
