Master Gardeners Present: "The Good, the Bad and the Bugly" - Sat July 20

Home gardeners often encounter unwanted pests, insects or weeds, in their lawn or garden. Integrated Pest Management or IPM is a practice you can use to solve most garden pest problems while minimizing risks to people, pets and the environment. IPM programs are based on preventing pest damage or keeping pests at tolerable levels.

If you are interested in up-to-date information on how to safely and effectively handle garden pests, plan on attending the Public Education class, “The Good, The Bad and the Bugly” provided by the UCCE Master Gardeners of Amador County on Saturday, July 20, 2019. Pest identification and appropriate biological, cultural and chemical controls for the home gardener will be covered. Hand-outs will be provided. This class is free and open to the public. No reservations are required. Classes are held in the GSA Building at 12200-B Airport Rd. in Jackson from 9 am until Noon.

For questions, call the UCCE Master Gardeners of Amador County at the UC Cooperative Extension Office from 10am to noon, Tuesday through Thursday, 209-223-6838 or email mgamador@ucdavis.edu.  Website:  http://ucanr.edu/mgamador
