This program is part of a new series, Informational Talks for the Home Gardener, designed to provide free, one hour informational classes for the public.
This class will feature speaker Kyle Rossner, Entomologist with the CMC Department of Mosquito Control. Rossner will discuss the basics of mosquito biology, the history of mosquito management, the need for mosquito management in our area, surveillance and management methods, what people can do to manage mosquitoes on their own properties, and how the Department works to monitor and manage mosquito populations in Cape May County.
Jennifer Sawyer, Rutgers Master Gardener Coordinator Cape May County, said, “Everyone is aware of the nuisance factor mosquitoes create but they are also capable of transmitting disease.” “Knowing management measures in place and how you can help is important,” added Sawyer.
