Do you have ants, flies, spiders, moths, bats, mice or bed bugs in your home? How about insects on your fruit, vegetable and flower gardens and in your lawn? Ticks in your grass? The cat from next door? Are you itching and scratching yet? In this workshop, we cover some basic prevention and control techniques for pest management using no or minimal pesticides. By learning more about several common pests found in and around your home, you will be able to promote a healthy home environment and become a more eco-friendly gardener.
