Date & Time

March 9, 2017
9:00am - 3:30pm (Check-in time: 8:30am)


Controlling insects is a lot more complicated than just applying pesticide controls.

To effectively manage insects, you must:

  • Identify the insect
  • Understand its life cycle
  • Distinguish between beneficial and harmful insects
  • Apply the right control at the right time

This one-day, hands-on class covers all four of these topics with practical tips and quick identification clues. This course is taught by Dr. Paula Shrewsbury, Extension Specialist, University of Maryland.
