New book available on bee and wasp management

Wasp and Bee Management: A Common Sense Approach is an in-depth reference based on the principles of integrated pest management (IPM). It includes detailed identification information for wasp, hornet, yellow jacket, and bee species. The risk for stings, swarms, and property damage is discussed and non-chemical recommendations are given if action is appropriate. The spiral–bound, 5-inch by 8-inch book is easy to use when scouting for wasps and bees around the landscape, home, school, or business.

The book has 60 +color photographs, plus descriptive profiles of over 22 wasp and bee species, detailing habitat, appearance, behavior, risk level, and more. It also includes instructions on trap-assembly, a checklist outlining seasonal management tasks, an appendix to help identify common species and their risk level, and a list of resources for further information.
