Insect Pests and (Non-Pests) of the Lawn and Landscape
Wednesday, February 9

The vast majority of insect species found in lawns are not pests, and do not require management.  Routine preventative insecticide applications; or applications made before a problem has been diagnosed, pose great risk to beneficial insects that are a part of nature's balance.  This presentation will explore examples of harmless and beneficial turf insects, as well as a few that are capable of causing lawn damage if not managed.   Join NC Cooperative Extension Agent, Thomas Glasgow for an informative morning.
