A bee peers out from its nest in the ground.

Matt Bertone, Director and Entomologist, Plant Disease and Insect Clinic, North Carolina State University

North Carolina is home to numerous wasps and bees that don’t live in hives or paper nests, but rather tunnel in the ground to make homes for their young. Matt Bertone will highlight some of these insects, discussing their diversity, biology and other aspects of their lives above and below ground.
