To reserve this seminar,
Currently California is facing the continuing problem of invasive insects and weeds and the destruction they are bringing to our state. There is an average of one new invasive insect introduction every month. The speaker will review why this problem exists, information and identification on many of the current weeds and insects we are battling, and new low impact methods for controlling these pests. She will also discuss the explosion of the disease known as Leaf Scorch on many of our landscape trees in Southern California that is being spread by the Glassy-winged Sharpshooter.
