The Pike County Extension has a busy July calendar of events beginning with the Backyard Insects & Wildlife Program for those who are dealing with backyard insects and wildlife. The program will be at South Alabama Electric Co-Op community room on July 18 between the hours of 9 a.m. and noon.

The Backyard Insects & Wildlife Program is for those who are dealing with nuisance pests and wildlife in their home gardens and want to know the best control tactics and for those who simply need to know the good bugs from the bad.

The topics for the very informative program include: Fire Ants and Other Home Pests; Lawn and Garden Insects and Managing Wildlife for Homeowners.
