Join Suzanne Wainwright-Evans, a leader in the horticultural entomology field, for a workshop on pest management. Dealing with pests within conservatories presents numerous challenges, including the public nature of these spaces and the constraints associated with pesticide application. Additionally, the presence of various pest species requires management to understand numerous insect & mite species. This workshop will explore pest control strategies, emphasizing the utilization of biological control methods. The session will also cover the use of pesticides and their compatibility with beneficial organisms. The initial hour and fifteen minutes will be in lecture format, followed by an open discussion where attendees can share images of specific issues for discussion.
Cost: $50 for members
After registering, please email photos of pest issues in garden and/or questions for our speaker to firstname.lastname@example.org
