Mar 16, 2024- Pest Management

Time: 9:45am – 11:30am

Although many critters compete with us for the fruit from our trees, we should NOT feel intimidated or overwhelmed. This is because smart people have already figured out how to manage most pests. Learn how to deal with fruit tree pests. Our speaker will share specific examples, techniques, products and stories to build your confidence the next time you meet a pest challenge.

Presented by: GREG ALDER, a Master Gardener, Director for the California Avocado Society, and creator of the Yard Posts, a website/blog with 3K followers and helps gardeners in SoCal grow food at home.
