Where did Bug Domain come from?

Bug Domain was created by hobbyist entomologist Nicholas James in 2020 as a repository for his ever-growing collection of bug-related knowledge and trivia. As a writer, Nicholas wanted to provide an accessible platform to introduce people to his love of insects through a resource that educates, entertains, and provokes further thought.

Bug Domain is all about making bug knowledge easily available to everyone. After all, like it or not we are surrounded by these fascinating creatures. Why not take this chance to get to know them better?
