How does the 2017 yellow jacket population compare to previous years? Will a changing climate mean more regular population increases of these stinging things?
Lynn Kimsey from the UC Davis Department of Entomology and Nematology will give an overview of yellow jacket diversity and biology, and how to distinguish them from other wasps. Kimsey will also discuss effects and treatments of stings, and even more importantly, how to prevent or treat outbreaks.
The program will begin at 6pm Sept. 21, with refreshments and no-host bar from 5:30-6pm at the Tahoe Environmental Research Center on the campus of Sierra Nevada College in Incline Village.
Seating is open at 5:30pm to guests who have pre-registered, open seating starts at 5:50pm, and the program begins at 6pm. A $5 suggested donation will be collected at the door.
