There's a lot more to your stripy picnic friend than meets the eye.

Wasps matter to you and the world. There are five times more species of wasps than bees, including wasps that mate inside plants and wasps that turn cockroaches into zombies. Wasps taught us how to make paper. They are architects and guardians of microorganisms. They are invaders, pollinators, pharmacists, seed dispersers, predators, and even nature's pest controllers. The endless forms of wasps provide us with a window into evolution's most remarkable inventions, and may even hold a cure for cancer.

Join us for a journey into the secret world of wasps that is guaranteed to blow your mind!

You'll also have a chance to buy a copy of Seirian Summer's acclaimed book, Endless Forms: The Secret World of Wasps.

Part of the newly-formed Oxford Entomology Society lecture series.
