Wasps; Management in the Home Landscape

April 30 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 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 workshop 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.

Tuesday, April 30, from 5:30 to 7:30pm at the Battle Ground Community Library; 1207 SE 8th Way, Battle Ground, WA 98604.

FREE! No registration necessary.

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.

Following the interactive talk, the instructor will lead participants in a walk around the property to identify and discuss wasp habitat in the built environment. Contact: erika.d.johnson@wsu.edu or 564-397- 5738.
