“Bug Time” Speaker – Dr. Betsy Boyd Submitted by Sandy Anderson, Program Chair
Dr. Elizabeth (Betsy) Boyd will be our speaker on Tuesday, April 30th. We have asked her to speak on our garden insects, both good and bad...you know, those little critters that are now emerging on our rose bushes while the leaves and buds are nice and tender. If you have an insect you would like to have identified, this is the meeting to bring it in (in a jar, please).
Dr. Boyd has been a professor at the CSUC, Chico College of Agriculture since 2008. She obtained a
B. S. in Entomology from Washington State University in 2000, and her Masters in 2002. While pursuing
her doctoral degree from the University of California, Riverside, she made time to work with the local rose society in Riverside.
She is currently co-authoring a book on entomophagy (eating insects) and runs an annual event where students have the opportunity to cook and eat insects.
Dr. Boyd also is a licensed California Pest Control Advisor (PCA) and hosts the annual Ag. Pests FFA contest each year at Chico State.
Bring your “Buggy” questions to the meeting on April 30th.
