This week, Jen chats with Natasha Mackay, an Entomology Research and Outreach Fellow (EROF) for Summer 2021! We talk about Natasha's childhood fascination with bugs and nature, her interest in outreach and extension, and the amazing work she's doing this summer working on trapping methods and biological control of the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug on Michigan apples! We also chat about where she hopes to travel to find bones and the cool bone earrings she makes in her free time!
