Description

This one-day, hands-on turfgrass management course will review common insect pests within our region and their natural enemies in landscape turf. You will learn to successfully identify turfgrass insects and the damage they can cause. Taught by Dr. Albrecht Koppenhofer of Rutgers University, this stimulating turf management course will improve your ability to assess the severity of an infestation and select the right control measures based on the insects' biology.

Confront insect infestation by understanding:

• Which insects have infested the turf

• How severe the infestation is

• How to use insect life cycles/biology to control them

• How to prevent future problems
