Hardin to discuss beneficial insects

-A A +A


Presenter Laural Hardin returns to the Pajarito Environmental Education Center to discuss about which insects are beneficial, and what you can do to cultivate their benefits.

The talk begins at 6:30 p.m. today. 

Predacious beneficial insects are becoming the preferred method for treating problem insects in professional greenhouse production and in the backyard garden. Many people are unwittingly destroying beneficial insect populations with poor gardening practices. 

This hands-on workshop will cover the types of beneficial insects, and how they can be encouraged to thrive, or be safely introduced into your environment.

Hardin is a certified arborist and integrated pest management specialist. She specializes in diagnosing and solving tree and garden problems. With an interest in helping people understand the natural balance in the landscape, Hardin shares her knowledge about how to avoid most issues by learning to see the root cause. 

The cost to attend this program is $6.50 for PEEC members, or $8 for non-members. No advance registration is required.
