What will you learn?

Wasps are some of the most essential insects in our ecosystem, accounting for around 50% of insect-on-insect predation. Discover how these dynamic creatures offer some of the best pest control possible to your garden while offering secondary pollinator services at the same time! Similar to native bees, there are around 4,000 species of wasps in North America. The vast majority of wasps are solitary and many couldn't sting you even if they tried. Learn why wasps are essential components of a garden and the surrounding environment.
