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 fire ants and landscape pests as well as other animals like arachnids and bats! Remember, the majority of insects are not pests. Let’s talk about the good guys too and a wealth of other topics. Webinars will be on the first Friday of each month at 2 p.m. Eastern time. Click on the title for more information.
