The annual winter bug count occurs throughout December, January, and February for Alberta and Saskatchewan. Any arthropod (insect, spider, sowbug, etc) found active indoors or out, on land or in water (but not including pets or pet food) counts. Take a photo and post it on the iNaturalist Winter Bug Count Project for help in identifying it and to submit it to this year's count!
