1. Yellowjacket behavior
We study seasonal activity and foraging distance of western yellowjacket (Vespula pensylvanica) to help to determine the best practices for baiting technique.
2. Use of baiting for yellowjacket IPM
In a collaborative project with University of Californaia Cooperative Extension, we experimentally incorporate the monitoring / baiting program for yellowjacket IPM in a recreational part in Irvine, CA.
Following video shows a baiting trial at a research site in Irvine, CA.
