What draws yellow jackets and wasps to your school, and what are the best ways to eliminate them? This webinar explores options to help keep students and staff safe from yellow jackets and wasps on school grounds. These insects present risks that range from painful stings to potentially severe allergic reactions. This webinar provided insight on how to identify these pests and the steps you can take to manage them as part of an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program.

A Cornell University study on reducing stinging insects on school grounds was presented along with an overview of the tools needed to monitor, exclude, remove and trap yellow jackets and wasps. The effectiveness and associated costs of these methods were discussed. During this webinar a school district highlighted their experience with these stinging pests and the steps they took to prevent future dangerous encounters.
