This site is intended for exchanging information with gardeners and others who are
interested in learning to cope with insects by :
a. providing a form for submitting key information and questions about your specific
insect problems. Click on

your further action (this information will be returned to you via E-mail).
c. providing links to other resources and books for you to learn more about insects, diagnosing insect caused
problems and insect control measures.
