We humans often do battle with creepy invaders of our living spaces. Entomologist Vernard Lewis will present the latest research on the biology, detection, and control of villainous house guests: insects that occupy the nooks and crannies of our homes — particularly ants, bedbugs, and termites. He will also display some of the creepy-crawlers, both dead and alive. (Do NOT take these home!)
Dr. Vernard Lewis is emeritus Cooperative Extension Specialist in urban entomology at UC Berkeley's Department of Environmental Sciences, Policy, and Management. He chaired the United Nations' termite dream team: the Global Termite Expert Group.
