For those interested in using biological control to manage pests in the greenhouse or nursery, Oregon State University will be hosting an all-day program titled Bugs in the System from 9 a.m.–4 p.m. on Tuesday, April 29 at the North Willamette Research and Extension Center (15210 NE Miley Rd., Aurora, Ore.).
Those attending will learn how to use biological control for aphids, fungus gnats, whiteflies, thrips and spider mites, and meet with growers, consultants and biological control suppliers. The class size is being kept limited, so that those participating can get personal attention and have their questions answered.
The cost is $25, which includes lunch. Space is limited, and pre-registration is required. To learn more, download the flyer (PDF). To register, contact Jan Egli at 503-678-1264 ext. 110 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
