Upcoming Insect Programs

If you are interested in learning more about bugs, the Bexar County Extension office (and myself) have a few educational programs scheduled for this spring:

May 17 - Understanding Your Wildlife Neighbors, 2-4:30pm. Now, I know this is not an insect program, but Judit Green, Urban Wildlife Biologist with Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has been gracious enough to agree to give a program on wildlife. She will cover identification, biology, habits, prevention and management of various critters that we commonly come in contact with.

May 18 - Beekeeping Basics - 9am-3pm. If you are interested in beekeeping or want to get started, this will be an excellent program. Hosted by Texas AgriLife Extension, Bexar County Master Gardeners, and Texas Beekeepers. We will cover the basics of bee biology (understanding what happens in the hive) and beekeeping basics to get you started with your first hive. For more information or to register, please email me at mekeck@ag.tamu.edu. We only have a few spaces left. Cost is $50.

May 29 - Bed Bugs 101 - 2-3:30pm - Its only a matter of time before we all encounter bed bugs! Learn bed bug biology, identification and inspection tips, prevention and management options.


** All programs will be held at the Bexar County Extension Office, 3355 Cherry Ridge, Ste 208.
Space is limited, please RSVP to Molly at 210-467-6575 or mekeck@ag.tamu.edu.
