Project Description Our afterschool program runs in 6 week cycles. This time we are focusing on "bugs" or Integrated Pest Management. In other words, how do we manage those pests around us that cause problems and damage without using chemicals that could cause more damage to the environment. We have a terrible tick problem in our area and would love for the kids to get a closeup view of this pest and see how it functions!
