Good garden bugs, and how you can mutually benefit each other

The creatures lady beetle imageare tiny. But the name of a workshop about them is … not quite as small as they are. “The Secret Lives of Good Garden Bugs and 2014 Buckeye Lady Beetle Blitz Volunteer Round-up,” led by CFAES’s Mary Gardiner and members of her lab, takes place today in Wooster (has already started; apologies), tomorrow near Cleveland and Friday in Cincinnati. The program is the same in all three locations. The focus is on arthropods that benefit gardens. You’ll also learn about, and can sign up to help with, two citizen-science research projects — one on native lady beetles, one on bee-healthy landscapes. (Photo: PhotoSpin.)
