Insect Pests

If insects are causing problems at your house, we may be able to help.  Our guest will be Phil Nixon, extension entomologist at the University of Illinois. He’s been with us many times before to take questions on a wide range of pests, everything from ants and roaches to silverfish and centipedes: the common pests that cause problems in our homes and gardens. Sometimes the key is just trying to get along, but if it’s a bug you just can’t live with, Phil can tell you how to make it go away.

Today's guest on Focus, writer Amy Stewart, takes us underground to investigate the numerous different species of this creature and how they contribute to the health of our planet and population.
