At the NC Museum of Natural Sciences:
What’s Bugging You? Animals We Love to Hate
Wednesday, September 30, 2009
8:00 – 10:00 am with discussion beginning at 9:00 followed by Q&A
Location: The Acro Cafe – 4th Floor of the Museum of Natural Sciences
Fire ants. Mosquitoes. Flies. Ticks. Gnats. Bed Bugs. The list goes on and on.
They disturb our sleep, sting us, envenomate us, suck our blood, eat our food, crawl on us…yet at the same time, they pollinate our food and flowers, provide insect control, and increase biodiversity. So, what is a pest? Are some of these pests invasive species? What can or should be done about them?
About the Speaker:
Join Dr.Colin Brammer, Entomologist and Curator of the Museum’s Naturalist Center for a discussion on all things pest related in our next Breakfast with a Side of Science
