The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in Bexar County will present three educational programs on Zika and mosquito reduction at its office in Suite 208 of the Conroy Square office complex located at 3355 Cherry Ridge Drive in San Antonio.

The programs are free and open to the public. The meetings are set for:

•Thursday, Aug. 25, from 10-11:30 a.m. and 2-3:30 p.m.

•Tuesday, Aug. 30, from 6-7:30 p.m.

“With locally transmitted cases in Florida, Zika has been in the news and on people’s minds a lot lately,” said Molly Keck, AgriLife Extension entomologist and integrated pest management specialist in Bexar County. “In Texas, we are bracing ourselves for cases spread from our local mosquitoes. And with the recent rains, we can expect the mosquito populations to spike in the next couple of weeks.”

Keck said Zika is spread by Aedes mosquitoes, which are found throughout Texas and live and breed in back yards, so individuals can play a large role in reducing their numbers and the likelihood of contracting Zika.

“The program will show what people need to know about Zika and mosquito management from an entomologist’s perspective,” she said.

For more information and to register, contact Nick Vazquez at 210-631-0400 or Keck at
