2017 All Bugs Good and Bad Webinar Series

Imported Fire Ants, Ant Pests September 25, 2017 Print Friendly and PDF

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, vegetable pests, and house dwellers as well as arachnids too.  Not all insects are bad, though, come and meet some of our native pollinators!  Webinars will be on the first Friday of each month at 2 p.m. Eastern time.  Click on the title for more information.
