About the event
The presenters will also share results from long-term beetle monitoring datasets, including the White River and Douglas Creek, and recent beetle herding experiments. Participants are encouraged to ask follow-up questions about tamarisk beetles and other biological controls in the area.
We'll then visit a local field site (location TBD) where beetle herding lures have been set and answer questions about how to use lures on your own. For interested participants, the Colorado Department of Agriculture will be providing a limited number of lures to take home and use. They will also provide details on how to acquire biocontrol agents and lures in the future.
Lunch will be provided. All interested parties are encouraged to attend; we feel this information could be particularly beneficial to landowners, land and wildlife managers, local governments, and students.
