Aardman - Lloyd of the Flies banner

The Royal Entomological Society and comedy star Lloyd of the Flies shine a light on the wonderful world of insects.

Lloyd is a housefly and the hero of Aardman’s children’s comedy series, Lloyd of the Flies. He is the first ever non-human Ambassador of the Royal Entomological Society. Lloyd and his friends have teamed up with the insect scientists at the RES to create a fun and fascinating interactive Bug Hunt and we can’t wait to hear what you think! 

Meet Lloyd

This is Lloyd, a young fly who lives in a rotting apple with his parents, little sister PB and 224 maggot siblings! With his best friend Abacus the woodlouse, Lloyd often gets himself into sticky situations.

The Bug Hunt

Lloyd’s family has booked a stay at a luxury bug hotel but Lloyd has lost the map. He’s also managed to misplace his family and friends.
