Class: CSI for Bugs
Thursday, April 18, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM (COT)
Sometimes only symptoms or signs remain after insects injure plants. Like a crime scene investigator you can use these clues to identify the perpetrator. Accurate identification will enable you to design the right strategy for managing the pest in the most timely and efficacious way. Join us to learn the basics of this approach, known as ‘symptomology’, and put your skills to the test during the field activity at the end of the evening. Getting There The Metrorail station is Brookland-CUA (Red Line) which is a 10 minute walk.

At our office, there is ample street parking and we accommodate bicycles on-site. Instructors Dr. Michael Raupp, Professor & Extension Specialist, University of Maryland Who Should Attend?
