Monitoring and Managing Insect Pests

Learn the life cycles, signs and symptoms, and methods of control for the most common insects in our landscapes. Get up-to-date information on easy, less toxic strategies for managing insects and when treatment would do more harm than good. In the classroom portion of each section, you will become acquainted with current seasonal insect threats; then spend a morning identifying them in the field.
