The first Don’t Be Bugged webinar will provide answers on what works and what doesn’t work to control fire ants. Dani Carroll, a regional home grounds agent with the Alabama Cooperative Extension System will host the free webinar on Friday, February 1 at 1 p.m. Central time.
“Do a web search, and you will find lots of sites with home remedies for fire ant control,” says Carroll. “They are all over the internet. This webinar will help ordinary people learn what works and what doesn't.”
In this week’s Backyard Wisdom, I talk with Dr. Kathy Flanders about the webinar series. You will get a preview of the first webinar, future ones and learn how the series was created. You can listen to our conversation here .
More information can be found at the Fire Ant Home Remedies event page including how to connect to the webinar. On February 1, participants can use this link to connect to the webinar. If you can’t watch this Friday, the webinar will be recorded, and you will be able to watch an archived version online.
The webinars are sponsored by eXtension and the Alabama Cooperative Extension System. They are coordinated by the Imported Fire Ant eXtension Community of Practice.
