August 25 – Bees/Wasps/Hornets

Questions to County Offices seem to have slowed down but one that has arisen and probably will continue to appear as we head into fall is about the differences between bees, hornets and wasps.  PJ Liesch referred to a publication “Social wasps and bees in the Upper Midwest” as a useful guide for providing answers.  It is hosted on the University of Minnesota Extension Site: https://www.extension.umn.edu/garden/insects/find/wasp-and-bee-control/ .

Guest speaker Laura Jull, Woody Plant Specialist, provided a list of newer trees and shrubs for consideration.
