Default Bug science in high school

Thought I would share with you a class assignment our 15 year old grandson used our back yard to accomplish earlier this month. He had to capture 10 (11 with one extra credit bug) insects. Moths and butterflies were ok but no caterpillars. He had a really nice dragonfly early on but broke the head off. Points would be lost for missing body parts. All insects had to be identified. The teacher took them out a couple of times to a wooded area behind the school but they only found a few bugs each. My garden was still very insect active so the kids were coming by to get their last bugs . My poor garden. What we do in the name of science...

Poor garden....Poor bugs!
Couldn't they teach it next year collecting what's already dead beneath the outdoor lights, stuck in the car grill, or what's found between the screen and sill?
