There are 63 species of mosquito in Georgia — and they are still biting
Cooler weather may be upon us, but as we open windows and head outside, it is important to remember that we are still in mosquito season.

New research from the University of Georgia revealed that mixed land use — such as developments interspersed with forest patches — improves bee diversity and is leading to new solutions for bee conservation. UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences researchers found that small amounts of development actually had a positive impact on the number of bee species present in a given area.
