Two Free Insects Lectures

I will be doing two free lectures coming up.  (Both are the same, so pick which one is more convenient for you.)  The first is July 14th 7 p.m. at the Greene Public Library in Coventry.  The second is at 6 p.m. July 21st at the E. Smithfield Public Library.

Insects in the Garden 

What was that bug?  Insects are part of gardening, and knowing which ones are beneficial and which are pests will help you take the best advantage of them.  There are over 4000 types of bees in North America and many are in crisis!  There are over a billion beetle species.  Learn about a few good ones and a few you should look out for.  Join Melissa Guillet as she helps you identify several common insects, which herbs and flowers will attract beneficials or deter pests, even how to raise butterflies!  Live and preserved specimens will be available for examination.  (Don't worry, nothing that bites!)
