Episode Description:

The possibility of getting stung creates such a powerful fear response in most of us the first response to the sight of a wasp is “kill it!” But not Scott Tucker! In this episode of Expedition New England Scott leads you on a journey into the wasps that will create a brand new appreciation for these insects as we discover yet another invasive species has crept into our eco-system. This time it’s Polistes Dominulus or commonly known at the European Paper Wasp. Thanks to the help of longtime friend Stephen Arpie and Connecticut State Entomologist Gayle Ridge O’Connor the ENE team pieces together the clues and figures out that these wasps are taking over our native range as they continue to dominate the insect world without any natural predators. As well as the wasps episode #92 also flashes back to a nocturnal scuba diving adventure at Weekapaug Point RI with long time friend and scuba partner Chris Pimley to investigate marine life under a new moon. And finally, Scott weaves the first chapter of an unfolding story about his son Race August Tucker who was rushed to the ER with a double kidney infection. You won’t believe the history of species of bacteria found growing inside him.
