All About Mosquitoes! – Monday, June 18, 1 p.m.

The rainy season is upon us and that means mosquitoes! We’re joined by someone from the Lee County Mosquito Control District, which is one of the most robust mosquito control programs in the world, to find out how the district works to keep the pesky insects at bay. Plus, we’re joined by a University of Florida Entomology professor who is a national expert on controlling mosquitoes, to find out why mosquitoes seem to target some people, but not others.

Encore Presentation – FGCU President Mike Martin’s North Korea Connection – Tuesday, June 19, 1 p.m.

When President George W. Bush asked New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson to travel North Korea on a diplomatic mission, he took a group of experts with him. One person who joined that delegation was Florida Gulf Coast University President Mike Martin, who was the education expert.
We’ll talk with President Martin to learn more about his time in North Korea, and what insights he brought back with him. We’ll also get an update on how the university fared during the 2018 Florida Legislative Session.
