Next Meeting - Wednesday, March 1, 2000 at the College Station Conference Center
Dr. Charles Barr speaks about Fire Ants.

  Fire ants currently infest over 300 million acres of land in the U.S. They have  recently spread into New Mexico, and California has a well-established infestation. Besides their obvious impact on human safety and simple enjoyment of the outdoors, fire ants may have profound effects on ecosystems that are only now being  investigated. Responsible control measures using Integrated Pest Management principles can minimize fire ant problems with minimal risk to people and the environment.
  Dr. Charles Barr is an Extension Program Specialist working with the Texas Fire  Ant Plan working mainly on fire ant control and public education. His doctorate  is in Rangeland Ecology and Management where his dissertation explored the effects of fire ants on rangeland plant species diversity and distribution.
