An Uneventful Summer For Invasive Insects Throughout Iowa
Iowa was not invaded by so-called murder hornets this summer. The Asian Longhorned Beetle did not arrive in the state to kill the state’s maple trees. And the European paper wasp kept a low profile.
On this Horticulture Day edition of Talk of Iowa, host Charity Nebbe speaks with Entomologist Donald Lewis for a 2020 insect update. Horticulturist Richard Jauron joins the program to answer listeners' plant questions.
