This workshop provides an introduction to Ireland’s wasps. During this workshop we will look at the features used to identify Ireland’s wasp species, as well as their life cycles, habitats and where to find them. The main focus will be on socia and solitary wasps. Weather permitting, this will be followed by fieldwork to search for wasps and test your identification skills! This workshop is suitable for beginners and those wishing to refresh their knowledge.
