2018 All Bugs Good and Bad Webinar Series

Please join us for this webinar series for information you can use about good and bad insects.  We used your feedback to bring topics that you suggested.  We will discuss troublesome insects such as invasive ants, landscape pests, and house dwellers as well as the 8-legged ones too (arachnids).  Not all insects are bad, though, learn the differences in identification and how to welcome pollinators to your area!  Webinars will be on the first Friday of each month at 2 p.m. Eastern time.  Click on the title for more information.
