Myth Busters: The Truth About What’s Bugging You
February 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Insects are the most diverse group of animals on Earth. With over 1 million described species, insects account for about 75% of all animal species. Insect diversity is essential in maintaining functional ecosystems, productive natural areas and working lands, and overall biodiversity. However, human perceptions of insects are often negative resulting in insects being misunderstood, underappreciated, and in some cases, unnecessarily feared. This session will cover a variety of “insect myths vs. truths” with the goal of reversing common misconceptions. Presented by Kelly Gill, from The Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service.
