Beetle Face Mask


This reusable, one-size-fits-most cloth mask features Ten-lined June beetles (Polyphylla decemlineata) from our entomology collection. Found in the western United States and Canada, the adult beetles have amazingly layered antennae that look like antlers when extended. The large surface area help detect pheromones, chemicals used by insects to communicate. 

Comprised of two layers of polyester cloth, the mask comes with silicone adjustment beads on the nylon spandex ear loops for a custom fit. Machine washable.

This face cover is not a substitute for N95 or surgical masks and is not FDA approved. However, evidence shows that wearing non-medical masks in combination with social distancing helps reduce the transmission of viruses in public places.

For hygiene reasons, face coverings cannot be returned or exchanged. All sales are final.
