Join PNW's Bugs in the System workshop

From Robin Rosetta, with Oregon State University's awesome nursery pest group:

Are you interested in using biological control to manage pests but don't know where to start? Come join us on Tuesday, April 29 for the Bugs in the System workshop and tour to learn more about starting or expanding a biological control program at your greenhouse or nursery.

We begin with a workshop to cover the basics of programs for many key pests. We're bringing in the fabulous Suzanne Wainwright of Buglady Consulting, who works with greenhouses and nurseries across the country to help them develop and maintain consistent and economic bio control programs for high quality plant production. Next we have lunch with the experts and exhibitors (included in the registration), followed by a tour of a grower site using biological control. For this season's tour, we highlight the efforts of Iwasaki Brothers Inc. in Hillsboro, Ore. One of our earliest adopters of biological control, they have a variety of programs for successful control of a range of pests.

Always affordable, always informative, always fun, the Bugs in the System workshops/tours are a great way to get all the information you need to start a viable program using biological control in your system.

Learn how to use biological control in time to implement programs this season! For more information and to register for the Bugs in the System workshop/tour, check the link.
