Boiler Bug Barn

Did You Know?: Boiler Bug Barn

Two beehives buzz with activity, a spider named Baby Spice spins a web, scorpions hang out, and hissing cockroaches munch on dog food — all in one room right on campus. Located in Smith Hall, this is the Boiler Bug Barn and it continues Purdue's entomology department's lively tradition of bringing insect education to the masses.
