This is the last issue of Home, Yard & Garden Pest Newsletter for 1999. You have probably already received a brochure for subscribing for the year 2000. We are reducing the number of issues from 22 to 20 next year, which will mean biweekly issues beginning in late July rather than mid-August. Pest problems are relatively insignificant at that time of year and, because we’ll be publishing fewer issues, we won’t have to raise the subscription price. Long-term sub-scribers will remember that the newsletter published 20 issues for several years. Before that, there were only 18 issues per year. We believe that we will be able to provide up-to-date pest information with 20 issues.
I welcome any comments about the newsletter, and I appreciate those that I receive during winter meetings. Send any comments to Phil Nixon, University of Illinois, 1103 W.
