Watch video above to see these stories on AZ Illustrated Science on Tuesday, Sept. 11:

INSECT FEST: Many people find insects creepy or frightening. But entomologists at the UA hope they can change that perception at the third annual Arizona Insect Festival. At the event, visitors will be exposed to the interesting side of these creatures, as well as learn about their importance in our ecosystem.

MEET THE INSECTS: Guests bring some of the insects that will be showcased at the festival during an in-studio interview.

NEW SCORPION SPECIES: A new species of scorpion has been discovered in the Santa Catalina Mountains outside of Tucson. The species is named Vaejovis brysoni, after Robert Bryson Jr., a biologist from Seattle and a member of the group that discovered the scorpion.

BEES & ANTS EXHIBIT: We explored Butterfly Wonderland's large collection of butterflies. But the place also houses ants and bees.
