Description: Chilli thrips, scale, fire ants, borers, … It seems the pests never stop coming. But often the pests are already being controlled by beneficials you may not be aware of. If you are not so lucky to have your own local beneficials, there are many new bio-control agents and softer bio-pesticides that can help control these pests while still following organic guidelines.
This workshop explains how to prevent pest problems from getting started, how to attract beneficials, how to ID insects, and how to select spray products that are eco-friendly and effective.
Ticket includes a delicious organic dinner and educational materials.
$65 per OHBA member and each employee
$80 per non-OHBA member. Non-members are ALWAYS welcome.
