Reminder: Wanted! Colorado Potato Beetle

Dr. Ian Scott, Research Scientist with the Southern Crop Protection and Food Research Centre in London is interested in obtaining live Colorado potato beetle samples for the 2010 Colorado potato beetle survey.  The purpose is to document the spread of tolerance to various insecticides.

What does he need? He is looking for approximately 150-200 adults per sample.  If you have a few you can spare, contact Dr. Ian Scott, his technician Dale MacArthur, or Dr. Jeff Tolman and they will arrange for someone to come out right away and take some beetles off your hands.
