This event is part of the Fruit IPM for the Home Garden and Landscapes Conference. 

We’ll discuss a few of the common insect, disease, wildlife, and weed pests that affect berries. Traps and scouting equipment to monitor for these pests will be on hand for participants to view. We will also talk about the time-sensitive nature of monitoring for pests and how to do this in your landscape.
