Pest Management Workshops - Every Thursday in October
We had a great 13th season!
It is over now but you can see that types of classes we offer below. Planning for the 2014 workshops will begin later this spring. Hope to see you there.
Want to learn more about the recently introduced pest azalea lace bug? Concerned about pollinator protection and the impacts of pesticides, particularly neonicotinoid insecticides, on bees? Are you interested in ways to stop diseases before they get started? Come to our OktoberPest workshops! OktoberPest is a series of workshops to help you improve your knowledge about pest management. This year we focus on five topics: azalea lace bug, aphids, pollinator protection, Verticillium wilt, and Pythium diseases.
Classes are held Thursday mornings at the North Willamette Research and Extension Center, 15201 NE Miley Rd, Aurora, Oregon. Still one of the best deals around, we're keeping our registration fees at the low price of $25/workshop. More detailed 2013 OktoberPest agendas in English and Spanish will be posted mid-September.
Oct. 3 When Rhodies Wear White: Integrated Pest Management of Azalea Lace Bug
During this workshop, participants will learn more about research-based knowledge for pollinator protection, Colony Collapse Disorder, and the impact of neonicotinoid insecticides on honey bees and bumble bees.
This class will help attendees learn practical tips that can be implemented in nurseries to reduce the risk of plant damage from two soil-based plant pathogens, Verticillium sp. and Pythium sp.
