Common Stinging Wasps Around the Home: Management Options 

Saturday, April 20 3:00 pm - 4:45 pm

 

Would you like to know the difference between a wasp that might sting and those that are unable or unlikely to sting?  How about do-it-yourself wasp management options that help you reduce the risk of being stung while also minimizing impact on the environment?       

Attend this seminar to learn more about what you can do before you call a pest management professional or apply a pesticide.  We will go over the physical appearance and biological differences between common wasps around the home and yard, and effective methods for homeowners to reduce encounters with stinging wasps.   

Emphasis will be on integrated pest management for homeowners: non-chemical options to prevent and suppress common stinging wasps, and the judicious use of least-toxic chemical options as a last resort. Saturday, April 20th from 3 to 4:45pm at Three Creeks Library: 800 NE Tenney Rd, Vancouver, WA 98685. Free. No registration required.
