Songs of Insects Walk - Southern Montgomery County

Join naturalist Cathy Stragar for a walk around the Woodend Sanctuary.  We'll listen to insect songs and try to catch a glimpse of the singers: katydids and crickets. 

This walk will help you get ready to participate in Cricket Crawl 2014—an evening sound census of late summer insects on August 22.  As we walk we’ll be focusing on the eight target species of the Crawl. To preview and listen to those eight, and to learn about the Crawl itself, visit

Free, no registration necessary.  No dogs please.

    Bee expert Sam Droege says in response to your question:
    The answer to the person's question is that they are more likely to be yellow jackets or wasps rather than bees. If they can send me a picture I can be of further help. There often is a way to put up a one-way excluder (insects go out, but can't come back in) however, that will essentially mean that all the insects die somewhere else. During the winter most of those colonies naturally die and the area can then be sealed up.

    Can anyone help me get rid of bees that are living beneath a board on the exterior of my house without killing them?
