Event Details

Come and learn about mealybugs in ornamental crops.They damage both foliage and flowers of many ornamental plants.We will provide this workshop to answer some of the following questions:

 How does a mealybug look like in a plant? Where should I be looking for mealybug in my plants? What insecticides are recommended for mealybug control?

If you want to learn about these and more questions, you are invited to attend our Mealybugs in Ornamentals Crops workshop, where we will cover this insect's identification and symptoms on plants and their control

We set limited spaces for a better learning experience on ID/Management and hands-on exercises.
