Strange Invaders: Ants, Termites, and Bed bugs
Have you heard the news? San Francisco took top honors in 2012’s list of our country’s most bedbug-infested cities! We are so good at being superlative! Even in locations that didn’t make the list, we home-dwelling humans often have to do battle with creepy invaders trying to share our living spaces and possessions. Come and hear the latest research on the biology, detection, and control of these uninvited houseguests. (You might be surprised to discover which is the most dangerous room in your house.) Get ready for a fun night of creepy crawlies, disturbing stories, and props-a-plenty to go around. This event is presented in partnership with Wonderfest, The Bay Area Beacon of Science.
Speakers: Dr. Vernard Lewis, UC Berkeley
Location: SoMa StrEat Food Park, 428 11th Street, San Francisco. (This awesome venue has a humongous, heated, indoor seating area.)
Eats: Bring your appetites! SoMa StrEat Food Park is San Francisco’s first permanent food truck pod. They host up to ten gourmet food trucks at a time, along with the city’s only beer and wine truck.
Sounds like great way to learn about bed bugs and have fun, for anyone in the San Francisco area!
