This is a busy week and I have lots of things to share:
This first piece was in my email and I really appreciate the Cass County Extension office reaching out to the editors to share this information, it is so relevant right now.
The recent warm weather seems to have brought out many insects. The Cass County Extension office located on the fairgrounds north of Weeping Water has received numerous calls requesting information on how to control these pests. Examples include: Asian Lady Bird Beetles, Millipedes and Box Elder Bugs. We have posted University of Nebraska publications on our website that should answer questions about the pests. For those without internet access, please call the Extension office at 402-267-2205 for help. Their website address is http://cass.unl.edu/home
