Did you know that you can use bugs to control invasive weeds? There are weevils, beetles, flies and more that thrive by eating the weeds that crowd out our important native plants. Join us for a one-hour adventure in the field to place bio-control insects on invasive weeds. We will also include short ecology lessons appropriate to the surrounding habitat.
