Are we right to be afraid of wasps?

For National Insect Week, an illustrated talk telling you everything you need to know about the nemesis of the summer picnic blanket! Wildlife journalist Dr Ben Aldiss explores why wasps sting; how you locate their alarm pheromone and how it works; the amazing abilities of wasps; the giant wasps’ nests of Florida and New Zealand; the biggest wasp in the world; the uses of wasps, and – most importantly – how to avoid being stung!
