Hi, I'm Fred!
I'm passionate about the natural world, and I'm on a mission to help people understand and appreciate every part of the life around them. When I was little, I was head-over-heels in love with every single flying or crawling thing I could find. Pretty soon I was the neighborhood's bug expert, and people would bring me caterpillars and other insects to identify.
Now, as an "adult," I am still fascinated with everything on six (or more) legs. Fred's Bughouse is simply a way to share the accumulated knowledge I have built up over a lifetime. I still do my best to identify everything the good people of my neighborhood bring to my door, only now my neighborhood is the entire world!
Thank you for being a part of this story. I deeply believe that the more people know about the world around them, the better chance we all have of keeping our planet green, healthy, and crawling with wildlife of all kinds.
