Alex Bic:

I grew up spending every summer and school break in a different country where my parents were teaching so I was able to see and learn about every variety of natural habitat and the animals that lived there. My interest in butterflies and other insects started at a very young age and continued through high school, when I volunteered at the Los Angeles Natural History Museum, then into college where I attended Purdue University to receive a Bachelor’s Degree in Entomology with minors in Forensic Science and Conservation Biology. Over time my hobby became my business and BicBugs was born in early 2011.

Victoria Bic:

Alex and I met at Purdue where I was studying Veterinary Technology at the time. I always had a love of the natural world and he opened my eyes to entomology on our first date when he showed me his collection- beetles as big as my hand! and butterflies and moths of every color and pattern imaginable. I was hooked! Once we graduated we decided to move to Arizona and go into business together. It’s such an amazing thing to be passionate about your work and really love what you do every day!

Alex and Victoria are Research Associates with the McGuire Center for Lepidoptera and Biodiversity at the Florida Museum of Natural History. They are members of the Lepidopterists’ Society, the Lorquin Entomological Society, and the Southeast Arizona Butterfly Association. They also have several scientific publications in various entomological journals and magazines throughout the world.

Jaclyn Ouellet: Office Assistant

Growing up, I was always fascinated by insects and reptiles and as I got older, I was drawn to them more and more. I decided to pursue biology as a degree after getting out of the military. Spiders, snakes and scorpions are my primary passion, but I appreciate how diverse beetles, bees, and other insects are. One day, I dream to be either a field entomologist, field herpetologist or both!

Ashley Welchert: Office Assistant

I am currently an Entomology graduate student at the University of Arizona, but I have not always known that studying insects would become my passion. Since childhood, however, I have loved the miniature natural life around me from the tiniest sea creatures I found on the Oregon coast to the biggest beetles I found in Arizona. After completing my undergraduate degree in Ecology, I found my way to learning about hydroponics and sustainable agriculture and I quickly became interested in investigating honeybee behavior in greenhouses. I still have that love of the beauty of all insects and tiny creatures, and continue to pursue that passion here with BicBugs!
