The decline in pollinator populations is noticeable to farmers, gardeners, and those who spend time outdoors. The decline of insect populations is also the subject of numerous news reports. On today’s show, host Patty Peltekos asks: how does climate change impact Wisconsin’s insect population—and why should you never squish a stink bug? She’s in conversation with P.J. Liesch, the “Wisconsin Bug Guy” and Director of the UW-Madison Insect Diagnostic Lab.
