Greetings Air Potato Patrol!

We wanted to update you on what we have planned for this coming spring and summer and share some information you will hopefully find useful.

First: If you have any questions or want to contact us, the best way to do so is through our email at Don’t forget our Facebook page at This is a great venue for asking questions and sharing pictures, so please like our page and follow the updates we post. There is a form for asking questions on our website, located at (under the Contact Us tab), and I promise we will work at answering your questions in a timely manner!

Second: If you have questions on how to order beetles for your property this spring, most of those questions are covered in our last blog post here
We do have members in states other than Florida now, so if you have any questions about availability to your state just contact me one of the ways listed above.

Third: Please don’t be shy about telling other people about us and what we’re doing! If you are a member of a garden club, civic organization or any other group, we have newsletter articles already written we are happy to share. If you want to have myself or one of our other team members come and speak to your group, please get in touch. I can’t make any guarantees that we will be available, but we will do our best to help if we can.

And finally- please let us know what you would like to know more about. Maybe it’s about the ‘behind the scenes’ activities that go into raising thousands of beetles a year. Or tutorial videos on questions you have about better controlling the vines or detecting beetles. Just let us know and we’ll see what we can do!

Thank you all for your help,

Bill Lester
UF/IFAS Extension Hernando County
