Pesky Pests heading this way 

Time: Saturday, April 14 at 1 pm
Speaker: Ken Fry


There are many insect pests that are not native to Western Canada that have become naturalized and are now a common occurrence in our yards and gardens. There are other species of insect that have arrived in North America but have not quite made it to Alberta. And there are still others that only occasionally make their way to Alberta only to die during the winter. This session will introduce you to a selection of these damaging visitors and discuss methods to protect your plants from those already here and how to be vigilant for those that might arrive, such as the Emerald Ash Borer or Asian Gypsy Moth.
