Cicadas, Mosquitoes, and Ticks…Oh My!

Speaker Series: “Cicadas, Mosquitoes, and Ticks…Oh My!” – Marten Edwards, Ph.D.

Join Muhlenberg College entomologist Marten Edwards as he presents his research on mapping the distribution of periodical cicadas in Pennsylvania — with a preview of what we can expect in 2021, the next time that our famous Brood X cicadas will make their presence known. He will also present highlights from his eight years of studying ticks in the Lehigh Valley region. When not chasing cicadas and ticks, Dr. Edwards has been studying the ways that Asian Tiger mosquitoes survive our local winters, and he will share some of the newest findings.
