Automated colrn pest trapping

Do you know if anyone is doing automated pest trapping in Hancock or surrounding counties, i.e. counties with high densities of corn? This is an automated trapping system that catches relevant pests (corn borers), reports data over the cellular network to a secure server where the grower/extension agent can see results.

Our small Christian school (28) students has set their stem project of the year to beautify and upgrade our school & landscaping. Would it be possible to get a speaker from the extension service come speak to our students to give us ideas and help with getting this project going?

Odd looking bee?

I've never seen a bee quite like this before. It's congregating on some exposed "hot" grass clipping in the process of decomposing.

(edit). I figured it out. It's a yellow dung fly
