What’s Bugging You?

Date(s) - Friday, Dec 02, 2022
12:00 pm-12:30 pm


Get practical solutions to pest problems with What’s Bugging You on Zoom from noon to 12:30 p.m. on the first Friday of each month.

This series is offered by Cornell Cooperative Extension Chautauqua County, in partnership with the New York State integrated Pest Management Program (IPM).

Explore timely topics to help you use integrated pest management (IPM) to avoid pest problems and promote a healthy environment where you live, work, learn and play.  IPM is a wholistic approach that uses different tools and practices to not only reduce pest problems, but to also address the reasons why pests are there in the first place. Each month, speakers will share practical information about how you can use IPM.

Each month, there will be a timely topic in 25 minutes, including time for questions. Then, in an IPM Minute, they will cover a specific task you can perform in the next few days to help you avoid pest problems.
