Avon Garden Club February Meeting

Interested in learning about bees? If you are interested in a discussion about bees, we have the perfect program to help you do that. Bees and other insects can get along just fine with humans until the insects get a little too close to home.

Why do honey bees move into house walls? Why are yellow jackets beneficial insects for most of the year, until late summer picnics? What keeps carpenter bees coming back to the same barn or fence, year after year?

In this program, Denise Ellsworth will discuss the biology and life cycles of common bees and bee cousins, including ground nesting bees, honey bees, bumble bees, carpenter bees, yellow jackets, paper wasps and more. Ms. Ellsworth will share how many of these insects are beneficial for most of their life cycles and consider ways to live nearby in peace.

Come hear Ms. Denise Ellsworth, OSU Program Director, Dept of Entomology, on Tuesday, February 19, 2019, at the Avon Garden Club meeting at 7 p.m. in the Orchid Room at Miller Nature Preserve at 2739 Center Rd, Avon, OH 44011 for this program. Direct inquiries to Kathy at (440) 668-3969.
