Entomologist Justin Schmidt, Ph.D., focuses on a group of insects called Hymenoptera, namely stinging ants, wasps and bees. He has traveled across the globe looking for bugs, and getting stung by them, on purpose. He ranked 83 insect stings to develop a pain index, and now has written “The Sting of the Wild,” which takes the reader on a journey inside the lives of stinging insects. Presented by Friends of the Salazar-Ajo Library.
