The Bug Physician is in! (Picture by Kathy Keatley Garvey)
Obtained a query about bugs that is been bugging you?
Head over to the Bug Physician sales space staffed by UC Davis Division of Entomology and Nematology doctoral college students on Saturday, April 23 at Briggs Corridor in the course of the 108th annual UC Davis Picnic Day.
The Bug Physician shall be in. Or, make that, the Bug Docs shall be in! They’re going to reply your questions, whether or not they’re about ants, millipedes, spiders–or such fan favorites as woman beetles (aka ladybugs), bees, butterflies, and dragonflies. Puzzled a few bug in your yard? Convey ’em in for identification!

The road-up of Bug Docs (all are doctoral candidates):
Doctoral candidate Xavier Zahnle research millipedes.
Griebenow and Oberski concentrate on ants, and Zahnle, millipedes.
Griebenow simply completed captaining the UC Davis Entomology Video games Workforce that received the championship on the Pacific Department, Entomology Society of America assembly. The workforce, comprised of Griebenow, Jill Oberski, Erin “Taylor” Kelly of the Geoffrey Attardo lab, and Madison Hendrick of the Ian Grettenberger lab, will now compete within the nationals in the course of the Entomological Society of America assembly that takes place Nov. 13-16 in Vancouver, British Columbia.
So, what’s your query?
- How do I hold ants from having a household reunion in my kitchen?
- What is the distinction between a millipede and a centipede?
- What’s an arthropod?
- What do millipedes eat?
- What number of species of bugs are there on the planet? What number of described species are there?
Ask away! And hold asking. Who is aware of, after you’ve got completed speaking to the Bug Docs, you might need to pursue a profession in entomology.
Now about these ants having a household reunion in your kitchen….Ought to we give them title tags?
