Ticks and Wasps of Washington
 
Living in the Pacific Northwest is great, isn’t it?  Whether you live in an urban or rural environment there are arthropods that bite or sting.  Does the very mention of ticks and wasps cause you or your clients anxiety?  Proper identification is key for successful management.
 
Dr. Peter Landolt, retired USDA-ARS, will discuss identification and life histories of commonly found Washington wasps. Dr. Elizabeth Dykstra, Washington Department of Health, Public Health Entomologist, will provide the latest on ticks and tick-vectored diseases found in Washington.  Learning to properly identify these fear-inducing arthropods will lead to successful management and reduce pesticide misuse.
