What happened to that insect that spent the summer on my porch? If only some insects migrate, what do the rest of them do in the winter? Help solve the mystery of what happens to insects in winter with clues found right in your own neighborhood! In this online presentation, naturalist Charley Eiseman will investigate his own backyard in western Massachusetts to discover what happens to insects in the winter, where they go, and what evidence they leave behind. Learn what lies beneath a rolled-up leaf, who lives inside that gall in the oak tree, and what left behind an intricated system of trails beneath the bark. The life cycles and winter evidence of many common Massachusetts insects will be uncovered.
Presenter: Charley Eiseman, freelance naturalist and lead author of Tracks and Sign of Insects and Other Invertebrates, also Leafminers of North America, and 'BugTracks' blog. He has published over 40 scientific papers on insect natural history, including the description of over 60 new species. http://charleyeiseman.com/
