You can help control purple loosestrife in your county through 4-H, the classroom, as a family project, or with a wetlands or community service group. When doing this as a 4-H project onebeetle lifecycle is raised so youth can observe the insect and plant lifecycles. The first generation of offspring is released into the wetland.

Steps to follow when doing this as a 4-H program:

* Please send copies of any newspaper articles (or information of radio & television appearances) to your Extension Office and the State 4-H Office. This information is very important to Extension and the SeaGrant College program to show the impact of the work we do and to be accountable to the citizens that support our work.
