Extension offers 'Invasive Insects' webinar program

PRINCETON — The Four Seasons Gardening Program from the University of Illinois Extension continues with a session titled “Invasive Insects.”

U of I Extension Pest Survey coordinator Kelly Estes will talk about Illinois’ “Most Unwanted,” the latest pests in Illinois threatening farmers, gardeners and homeowners.

Estes will discuss identification, host preferences, where these insects are right now, and what their population means to Illinois.

With the knowledge of pest damage that has already occurred from the emerald ash borer and the gypsy moth, identification of these future invading insects and locating hot spots is key for prevention.

This program will be offered via a live webinar at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 23, at Extension offices in Princeton, Henry and Ottawa. This webinar may also be viewed from wherever someone has internet access by pre-registering at go.illinois.edu/4seasons_webinars.
