Things that BUG You!

GNOEA met in person, Tuesday, June 15, 2021 to learn how to keep bees, bugs, bats, and termites out of your home and place of business. Marcus Azzarello, Franklynn Pest Control Co., Inc., a GNOEA veteran member, educated the group on ways to avoid and control these pests. He provided interactive “show & tell” items such as an active termite colony and samples of the damage they can cause.
