No. 18/October 22, 2010

Last Issue for 2010
This is the eighteenth and last issue of the Home, Yard, and Garden Pest Newsletter for 2010. At this point, we are planning on continuing this newsletter with the first issue being published in April 2011.

Periodical Cicada
We are expecting an emergence of periodical cicada throughout much of the southern half of Illinois in May 2011. These insects cut slits in tree and shrub twigs, branches, and trunks that are less than one and one-half inches in diameter.

Index 2010
An index of subjects from the 2010 newsletters is listed.
