Ralph Maestre BCE lectured at the monthly meeting of the New York Entomological Society held at the American Museum of Natural History. Attending was Dr. Louis Sorkin BCE staff Entomologist at the Museum.
The lecture was on Advanced Termite Biology and Infestation Control. After the 45 minute lecture Mr. Maestre answered a wide range of questions and was given a round of applause.
Dr. Sorkin than led us out of the museum via his office, we passed rows of cabinets containing hundreds of preserved butterflies, several tanks containing various live tarantulas and were shown Dr. Sorkin's captive bed bug specimens.
The exchange of ideas continued over a wonderful dinner leaving my stomach full and my mind crammed with new information.
