Pollination Ecology: A Virtual Discussion on How Can We Help Bees
November 10, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Honeybees, both locally and nationally have been suffering catastrophic losses. During this Zoom program Larry Dapsis will review honey bee biology and the factors responsible for these losses. In addition, he will review the state of wild pollinators like bumble bees and the things residents can do to help them. Many of the fruits and vegetables we eat require pollination. The current situation with murder hornets in the US will also be discussed.
Larry Dapsis has been an entomologist since age 5. He has a B.S. in Environmental Science & Biology from Fitchburg State University and an M.S. in Entomology from the University of Massachusetts – Amherst. He also has forty years of professional pest management experience including vegetables, cranberries and household insects. He joined the Cape Cod Cooperative Extension in 2011 as a Deer Tick Project Coordinator and Entomologist and is a member of the Barnstable County Task Force on Lyme and other tick-borne diseases.
