Amateur Entomologists' Society (AES)

The Amateur Entomologists' Society is a society for those interested in insects (entomology). Many members also have a wider interest in natural history.

Our objective is to promote the study of entomology, especially amongst amateurs and the young.

We publish The Bulletin, a peer-reviewed journal, Entomologist's Record and Journal of Variation, Invertebrate Conservation News and a magazine for our younger members, the Bug Club Magazine. We also issue a monthly email newsletter, where members can buy, sell or exchange entomological material. Members are encouraged to send articles and observations to the Society for publication in the journals.

The AES runs an Annual Exhibition and Trade Fair near London. The exhibition is the perfect place to buy entomological books, equipment or talk to like-minded individuals. Field meetings are held by study groups and by local groups of members. The Society holds its members' day every spring and other events throughout the year.

The Society also publishes a range of handbooks, leaflets and pamplets covering a range of different topics from Habitat Conservation for Insects to Rearing and Studying Stick and Leaf-insects.
