Description
There are more than 60 species of mosquitoes in Wisconsin and a few can make life miserable. Mosquitoes are not just nuisances -- some species can transmit "bugs" that cause diseases like dog heartworm, West Nile or La Crosse encephalitis. Dr. Susan Paskewitz, Professor of Entomology at UW-Madison, will introduce some of the unique aspects of mosquito biology and provide an update on new species like the Asian tiger mosquito, which have recently appeared in the state.
