Manage those maddening mosquitoes
Tuesday, April 6, 2021 by Tai Moses
If it’s not one thing it’s another, and mosquitoes are definitely another of those things we have to worry about. Fortunately, it’s not difficult to manage the pesky insects – if you practice a big dose of prevention. Wizzie Brown, an expert in integrated pest management with the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, reveals the secrets of mosquito management on the next Wild Neighbors webinar, hosted by Balcones Canyonlands Preserve staff. Brown will discuss “non- or less-toxic ways to control and avoid mosquitoes this year … how to reduce habitats that can lead to mosquito issues around your home and in the landscape, treatment of standing water that cannot be removed, impact of spraying, and use of repellent.” Thursday, April 29, noon-1 p.m. Register for the webinar here. Past episodes of the Wild Neighbors speaker series are archived on YouTube.
