Local Insects and Spiders in Winter
Charley Eiseman, Northfield entomologist
December 2 (Thursday), 6:30-7:30pm via Zoom - email firstname.lastname@example.org for the link.
Monarch butterflies may have all flown to Mexico for the winter, but what are all the other insects and spiders up to now? Join Northfield entomologist Charley Eiseman for a virtual tour of his yard on a winter day, in search of answers to this question. We'll encounter some overwintering bugs, along with egg sacs, cocoons, nests, and other evidence of their presence. For each of these clues we find, Charley will discuss who left it, their life cycle, and how they make it through the winter. There will be great photos, plus a preview of a cool 2022 calendar of Charley's leaf-miner photos that's available for purchase.
