Come join us in Raleigh, NC to learn more about those little critters we love to hate.
Ticks and mosquitoes quite literally "come with the territory". Their bites can be both a nuisance and a potential health threat by transmitting the pathogens that cause Lyme Disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, West Nile Virus and similar diseases. We will discuss the common species of ticks and mosquitoes found in North Carolina, and as well as recognizing the signs and symptoms of the common vector-borne diseases and ways to protect yourself from tick and mosquito bites.
Dr. Waldvogel, Extension Associate Professor of Entomology at North Carolina State University for 25 years, will be NCAEP’s dinner speaker on 25 September 2014. The topic of his discussion will be tick and mosquito borne illnesses in the Southeastern US. Dr. Waldvogel received an M.S. in Biology from Fordham University, an M.S. in Entimology from Penn State, and a Ph.D. in Entimology from NCSU. His work experience, excluding seventh grade math and science teaching, includes private sector efforts to develop biological pesticides with a focus in forestry and cotton. His current responsibilities include teaching three courses including one on pesticides, ornamental and turf pests, and a seminar course. The majority of his time is spent addressing arthropod and vertebrate pests in and around structures as well as Public Health pest issues.
