  • October 5, 2017 – Vampires of the North with Robert Holmberg from 7 PM to 8 PM in Edmonton at Kings University.  Most likely, every human that has ever lived has had some blood pilfered by a biting fly. There are five families of biting flies in Alberta: mosquitoes, horse flies, black flies, no-see-ums, and certain muscid flies. We will cover their diversity, habits, life cycles, medical and veterinary importance, and how to avoid being bitten. Preserved specimens will be available for viewing.
