Ah, summer! A time for rest, relaxation—and hordes of creepy little things poised to munch on your flesh. If pests are keeping you from enjoying the great outdoors, consider attending Bug Phobia Be Gone!, courtesy of the High Park Nature Centre. Join Emily Macleod, an entomologist (that means she studies insects), for a full day of lessons, hikes, and workshops on bees, ants, arachnids, beetles, and many other beings that exist in our vicinity. Perhaps once you learn a little about the interesting lives and purposes of these insects, you’ll be less likely to scream, swat, and stomp when they come near.
