Welcome to Treehopper!

I'm Parker, a recent graduate of McMaster University's Biology & PNB program and the founder of this website.


An avid entophile, I own two Madagascar hissing cockroaches, over 150 pinned specimens, and, of course, this website. In order to inform others about the world of insects, you need to know about the world of insects - I plan on using this blog as a tool to teach others as well as to motivate myself to continue learning.

Other Writing

I've written some interesting pieces for other websites as well. To learn more about insects, I'd suggest checking out the following:

Currently seeking opportunities!

Between jobs, I'm currently looking into full-time positions related to entomology, especially insect rearing. If you're looking for a motivated process manager, research/lab assistant, or field biologist, feel free to email me at parker.smale@gmail.com

Call Like a Cicada

Have any topics you think I should write about? Interested the world of entomology? Did I call a frog hopper a leaf hopper? Let me know!
