Practical Skills for Managing Invasive Pests workshop

Workshop is 9 a.m. - noon.

Commercial and backyard growers are invited to join members from the Departments of Entomology and Extension for a workshop that highlights recent research results and reviews the latest recommendations for key practices in monitoring, identifying, and managing the spotted-wing Drosophila and Brown Marmorated Stink Bug on fruit and vegetable crops.

Although the spotted lanternfly has not yet been found in Ohio, this invasive pest has been detected in nearby states, so we’ll provide some tips to remain vigilant for this potentially new pest of grapes, hops, apples and cherries.
