CAMP WTML: Good Bugs, Bad Bugs, & Other Bugs of Interest

Insects that that are encountered in both residential and natural landscapes may be considered beneficial or harmful depending upon what they are doing. Over 95% of insects are not pests, but are just living wherever they find suitable food and habitat. Pamm Cooper of the UConn Home and Garden Education Center will cover some garden pests, some beneficial insects (like pollinators, lightning bugs, dung and carrion beetles), and benign insects (like walking sticks, native moths and butterflies) that are commonly found in Connecticut.

Registration begins July 25th, online or by calling the library’s Reference Department at 860-652-7720.
