Understanding Natural and Organic Pesticides
Thursday, June 17, 2021
10 to 11 a.m.
Virtual attendance via Zoom video and audio internet connection
Presenter: Phil Roudebush, Extension Master GardenerSM Volunteer
This presentation outlines the use of natural and organic pesticides including soaps and oils, botanicals, minerals, and biopesticides (microbials). Pests are any unwanted living organism found in your home, garden, or landscape. While a good pest management plan will start with preventative, cultural, and other non-chemical methods, a pesticide may also be considered. Selection guidelines, proper use, and reasons for pesticide failures will be discussed.
