This time of year we find our lawns, gardens, and sometimes even our homes, invaded by a variety of pests. If you’re seeking strategies for dealing with these uninvited guests, you may find helpful information at the “Insects, Spiders, Mice and More” page of the Lancaster County website.

We've had several questions regarding bed bugs recently. The site contains reliable, science-based resources you can use to deal with the pests.

Nebraska Extension provides timely advice and addresses current landscape and garden questions through Horticulture Updates. If you do not find answers to your particular questions, please contact our office in Greeley, Loup City, Ord or St. Paul so that we may assist in finding more information.
