Insect Blog: Develop your vocabulary and reading

Hi guys,

I’d like to introduce you to a new blog about insects. It’s written by a guy called Chris who is an entomologist, which is a person who studies insects.

As you know insects is a topic that has appeared in IELTS reading quite a few times and is very difficult because of the academic vocabulary involved. So, this blog can help you become more familiar with this topic. Some of the posts  on Chris’s blog are very high level with a lot of technical language for other entomologists. However, other posts are written for people without knowledge of insects and are very interesting to read, particularly for band score 7, 8 and 9 level students.

The aim of his blog is to share information and teach people about insects that pollinate and insects that are pests. Here’s a link: pests and pollinators by Chris



  1. the link in the above article is not working. Could you please give me another active link for the same ‘pests and pollinators by Chris’ ?

  2. Thank you Liza

  7. Hi Liz! Thank you for everything!
    I would like to ask you in IELTS Exam in general,
    It would be possible to get band 7 if our scores were for example (6.5, 6.5, 7, 7) in IELTS Tests? IT (the overall band 6,75) will turn to band 7?

    All Thanks!

  8. Hi Liz,

    I hope you have the time to help me w Y/N/NG questions. (fyi, I finished with all the reading exercises you provided and all of them were very helpful thank you so much).
