NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. — Controlling insects is a lot more complicated than just applying pesticide controls. To effectively manage insects, you must:
- Identify the insect;
- Understand its life cycle;
- Distinguish between beneficial and harmful insects; and
- Apply the right control at the right time.
This one-day, hands-on class covers all four of these topics with practical tips and quick identification clues. This course is taught by Dr. Paula Shrewsbury, Extension Specialist, University of Maryland. She will bring a truck full of specimens to view and discuss.
Recommended Text: Managing Insects and Mites on Woody Plants: An IPM Approach. The cost for this text is $29.95 for Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) members and $44.95 for non-members. For ordering information, please contact the TCIA at 603-314-5380.
