Collection kits are now available

This week we have assembled kits for Washington Co. residents to use to collect some of the black fly adults that are buzzing around their heads this spring and summer. The kits include five plastic bottles of ethyl alcohol for killing and preserving specimens, as well as labels for recording when and where the adults were collected. Specimens collected with these kits will help with our efforts to identify which species of black flies are causing the nuisance to people, and whether the species change throughout the season. If you would like more information on how to receive one of these kits, contact us through the link above.
