Gangloff-Kaufmann, J. L.
The book includes 60+ color photos and information for identifying over 22 species of wasps, hornets, yellow jackets, and bees detailing habitat, appearance, behavior, and more. The risk for stings, swarms, and property damage is discussed and non-chemical recommendations are given if action is appropriate. Recommended for landscapers, homeowners, professional pest-managers, and others that may scout a property for stinging insects. The book details non-chemical methods to manage risks from wasps and bees. It also includes instructions on trap-assembly, a checklist outlining seasonal management tasks, and more.
This 88 page publication (NRAES-185) was originally published by the Natural Resource, Agriculture, and Engineering Service (NRAES, previously known as the Northeast Regional Agricultural Engineering Service), a multi-university program in the Northeast US disbanded in 2011. Plant and Life Sciences Publishing (PALS) was subsequently formed to manage the NRAES catalog. Ceasing operations in 2018, PALS was a program of the Department of Horticulture in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) at Cornell University. PALS assisted university faculty in publishing, marketing and distributing books for small farmers, gardeners, land owners, workshops, college courses, and consumers.
