      EVENT DETAILS
      Air Potato Challenge - Leaf Beetles Available for the Public

      Manatee County residents and public land managers are invited to come out to the Manatee County Agriculture and Extension office to learn more about the invasive air potato vine and a biological control, the potato leaf beetle.  Receive a free supply of beetles for use on your property. The insects will only be available for pick-up during this event. For those who have registered, your beetles will be set aside for pick-up during the event. All others will be on a first-come-first served basis. Limited supply of beetles. Air potato vine is one of Florida's most problematic invasive plants. The air potato leaf beetle is a small but formidable enemy of this invasive plant. Residents are encouraged to bring a cutting of air potato for confirmation.
