Well … maybe not Z. Not this time around.
Bugs that infest your pantry or bite you at night … those intractable weeds … the rot on your peony blossoms — each is a pest. Even mildew (yes, mildew) is technically a pest.
Our IPM educators statewide are writing up their quarterly reports even as we speak. Here, culled from the first batch of reports to cross our collective virtual desktops, a list (in no particular order) of questions we fielded from walk-ins, emails, and phone calls:
- asthma triggers, rodent burrowing, feral cat, exempt products, rodents, milk snakes, poison ivy, Japanese knotweed, voles, snakes, clothes moths, bedbugs, millipedes, mice, mouse traps, beetles, ticks, yellowjackets, toxic mold, jumping mice, pesticide laws, cat repellents, cockroach invasions, tiger mosquitoes, lone star ticks, deer ticks, 17-year cicadas, yellowjacket traps
Our educators are listing, too, their radio and TV interviews:
