Ryan Bridge began collecting bugs more than 30 years ago. Now, he’s looking to share his entomology knowledge with kids as a way to help them learn to read.

The Mount Wolf resident published “Insects With Wings” in September, part of his continuing mission to interest kids in the bugs they might see every day.

“They are not all ugly or pretty. Some we like, and some we don’t. It doesn’t make them all bad or useless,” Bridge said in a 2008 York Daily Record/Sunday News article.

“Everything bigger than insects tries to kill them. Because of that, insects have to be real creative as to how to survive. They are the bottom of the food chain and are necessary for everything above them. A mosquito may be pesky to us, but it is food to others.”
