What's Bugging You August 19, 2014

Aug 19, 2014

Aired Tuesday, August 19 at 6 p.m. Summer is in full gear and so are the insect around us, so once again we invited Dr. Beverly Burden, Associate Professor of Biology at LSUS and our resident Entomologist to join host Bill Beckett for a discussion about our insect world, both friendly and fiendish. They'll discussed what's new in the insect world and took your calls and questions about "What's Bugging You?"  If you have a photo of an insect you'd like Dr. Burden to identify please send that to wbeckett@lsus.edu

Some of the Insects we'll discuss tonight.
