Vertebrate Pest Control in the Garden (Black-tailed Deer, Pocket Gophers, Moles, Rats, Squirrels, Birds)
Saturday, April 15th, 2017
1:00 PM – 3:00 PM
If 4-legged critters are destroying your garden and gobbling up the fruits of your labor, then this is the class from you. You will learn many useful non-poisonous abatement techniques to protect your garden from voles, moles, gophers, birds, squirrels, and deer. Topics will include trapping, creating barriers, and deterrents.
Presenter Master Gardener Janice Moody: Janice at one time maintained 6 acres in Pescadero, primarily by herself, which included gopher and deer abatement. With the help of about a dozen Cinch traps, she boasts the trapping of over 400 gophers in a 3-month period. She loves to share her tricks of the trade with her fellow gardeners who might view this as a daunting task.
Presenter Master Gardener Nancy Grove: Nancy Grove gardens on the mid-Peninsula, with a focus on water-wise perennial plantings, small fruit orchard, and raised beds. She raises essentially all of the produce needed for her family, canning and preserving to extend the harvest year-round. A founding member of the San Mateo/San Francisco Master Gardener Program, Nancy enjoys giving talks about various aspects of gardening, learning a great deal from her audiences in return.
