Horticulture / Community   

  • Emerald Ash Borer Workshop held August 13th at 6:00 p.m. at the Extension Office CANCELLED!!!!

  • Mosquitoes are awful this year!  Public Health Solutions has brought us some mosquito dunks, which can reduce mosquito number by putting them in landscape ponds, livestock tanks and other sources of standing water. Standing water areas can be treated with a biological larvicide. Bacillus thruingiensis israelensis (Bti) or Bacillus sphaericus (Bs) are naturally occurring soil bacterium that control mosquito larvae by disrupting the gut receptors and causes the larvae to stop eating anddie.  Biological larvicides are safe to use in water of livestock troughs. Stop in to pick up your free sample of mosquito dunk!
