Bring enough supplies

Children need energy to do adventure. Bring a large bottle of drinking water and light snacks that are full, such as whole wheat bread. Avoid too much sugar eaten during the trip.

Teach ethics in the wild

The wild is useful for learning to respect one another. Teach children to respect plants along the track and do not carelessly pick, always keep calm and do not throw litter.

Dysdercus has a mouth consisting of a rostum and a stylet. The rostume is located on the anterior part of the head, is elongated and segmented as a wrapper for the stylet. This sucker is formed by the food tract and salivary tract. The nymphs undergo several molting processes to become imago.
