On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
The good news: Stink bug populations seem to be declining in our area, meaning the armor-plated pests shouldn’t be as prevalent this year. The bad news: The region’s ash trees are in danger from the emerald ash borer. The beetle has turned up in many Maryland counties and in Baltimore, where a majority of the street trees are ash. The University of Maryland’s “Bug Guy” joins us to examine these and other insects, from mosquitoes to ticks to bees.
