WCAX Winter Bugs PKG 2/19/13

At some point, I will get out of February with this backlog of pieces. This one was me dabbling back into the science-y realm that I love to talk to an entomologist about what the winter this year (which was VERY different than the winter last year) means for the state’s bug population. It’s a question we’d been getting from gardeners, since there are many in Vermont.

The real response is that it’s too early to know for sure, but they are “cautiously optimistic” that many of the pests that were rampant last year with the warm winter we had would not be as bad this year.

The piece was supposed to debut on my show, but the evening news needed to fill time during the week and they used it instead, so it aired on February 19 at 6 p.m., and again on my show the next morning.

It was an interesting piece for me to do, since it was a good follow-up to the bugs piece I did last summer. If you look, you can see bits of the footage from that in this piece…
