Collection spots in Illinois / Chicago area?

Recommended Posts

I’m making a trip down to Chicago this week (currently there!) and I’m thinking of making a few stops to search for cool insects/beetles. Anyone know any good spots and cool species that are found around? Preferably collection friendly as my friend is from the area and getting into bugs :)


so far on my radar is Cotalpa, Tityus, click beetles, emerald euphoria, and American millipedes. Also interested in other cool bugs!

I've been around Chicago but so much development, maybe there's a park somewhere with a few beetles. Love to see a good catch.
