Here is our very popular Invasive Species Bug Mask collection! We have both line-drawn versions for coloring in, and pre-colored in with simple bright colors according to the actual true look of the insect. Our masks are great because they meld biologically accurate information with a fun and cartoon-like appearance. They are perfect for your invasive species lesson plan, ecological role playing, and more- whether for Halloween, Earth Day, or any other day!

Click on any image to take you to that file; choose either a pre-colored invasive insect mask, its corresponding line-drawn bug mask, or download both masks for a given species for whatever uses you might have. Please note that the spongy moth mask comes in male and female moth forms (2 pages, only male moth is shown in the image preview) and the Asian longhorned beetle mask comes with a separate page to print the long antennae.
To help you select a mask that applies well to the trees and issues where you live and work, below we’ve suggested two or three species for of the USA’s and Canada’s basic regions. However, these are just suggestions, so feel free to use any and all insects if you’d like. Enjoy!
