Spraying Information

This includes local and international information and links.

 Many thanks to the volunteers  who have been working away on our section of Bolingbroke Road in the particularly miserable conditions (temperature, humidity and flies) this year.  We cannot eradicate the parsnips but we can reduce their numbers so that the County will not spray.       And this was done!

Lyme Disease Information

There is information on LymeHope, a Canadian not-for-profit dedicated to research and outreach.

Good news from CHIR :  An initiative is being lead to build a network facilitating collaboration, resource and knowledge sharing and building research capacity.
