Dr. Whitney Cranshaw - Colorado State University Pond Insect Study

At a meeting of the Colorado Water Garden Society a few years ago, Dr. Whitney Cranshaw, Professor of Entymology at Colorado State University, presented some of his findings based on a study of several members’ water gardens the previous summer. No one had ever done a comprehensive study of the types of wildlife before, especially the bugs and insects we all find in and around our ponds.

Comprised of three parts - 1) Water Garden Features Determine What You Will Find; 2) Potential Water Garden Insects; and 3) Predators Found in Water Gardens - the presentation was nearly an hour and a half. We have broken the presentation into ten (10) segments, with BOTH video and audio files available. Windows Media Player will play types of files with no problem.
