Details

Kelly will talk about Illinois’ Most Unwanted, the latest pests in Illinois that threaten farmers, gardeners and homeowners. Kelly will discuss identification characteristics, host preferences, where these insects are right now and what their population means to Illinois. With the knowledge of the pest damage that has already occurred from unwanted pests like Emerald Ash Borer and Gypsy moth, identification of these future invading insects and locating hot spots is key for prevention.
