Pest Management Workshops for Greenhouse and Nursery Growers Thursdays in October

OktoberPest is a series of workshops designed to help improve knowledge about pest management. This year we will focus on pest insect order recognition, boring insects, invasive species, and slug and snail management in commercial nurseries.

Our workshops and information sessions provide a focused learning environment for pest management professionals.

The participants of this workshop will learn visual recognition of key insect orders that contain pests of ornamental plants in the Pacific Northwest as well as their associated damage.
