Hi, my name is Anthony Sheppard. I am currently studying biology at the  University of Wisconsin La Crosse. In my free time I enjoy playing sports   with friends, going out to eat, longboarding, hiking, fishing, hunting, snowboarding, watching  movies, and hanging out with friends and family. Some of my all time favorite things include: Lost, deep fried pickles, sloppy joe's, and the Green Bay Packers. I hope that you enjoyed learning about the green house thrips as  much as I did!
