Event description
Heather Holm presents - ‘Native Predatory Wasps: Their Role as Pollinators and Beneficial Insects’

About this event

Join award winning author and pollinator conservationist, Heather Holm, for a free online presentation on Monday, June 21st at 7:00pm. Her talk will be on Native Predatory Wasps: Their Role as Pollinators and Beneficial Insects.

Native bees and predatory wasps share the same lineage and also share many behaviors and habitat requirements. Predatory wasps feed their offspring invertebrates (insects and spiders) and bees diverged from this carnivorous diet to feed their offspring plant-based food (pollen and nectar). Flower-rich landscapes provide critical habitat for both adult bees and wasps because they each consume flower nectar; in addition, wasps need diverse, flower-rich landscapes to hunt for their prey. Heather will highlight many amazing natural history and biology facts about native wasps illustrating their nesting habitat, prey specificity, and the ecosystems services they provide—pest insect population control and pollination.
