Spotted Lanternfly: an Invasive Insect Knocking on Wisconsin’s Door | Register here
April 26, 12pm
The spotted lanternfly (Lycorma delicatula) is an invasive insect that was first reported in North America in Pennsylvania in 2014. Since that time, this pest has spread through neighboring states, reaching parts of Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana. With spotted lanternfly (SLF) poised to appear in Wisconsin, this webinar will cover how to identify this invasive pest, its biology, and management approaches used in areas with established SLF infestations.

Bee Lawns: Using Your Lawn to Provide Food for Pollinators | Register here
May 9, 12pm
You may have heard of “No-mow May” with the goal of not mowing lawns in May to allow early-season flowers to bloom for pollinators. Because turfgrass alone doesn’t provide food for pollinators, an even more proactive way to provide food resources for pollinators is to intentionally incorporate flowers in your lawn that have the right type of nectar and pollen for bees – a “Bee Lawn.” In this presentation, you will hear from University of Minnesota researcher Kristine Moncada on the research behind bee lawns, about the best bee lawn plant species, how to establish and maintain bee lawns, and much more.
