GLC Natural Pest Management

November 24, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

Do you know that only about 1% of all species of insects you see in a garden are pests? The majority are beneficial insects, which can be attracted to your garden to help clean these pesky aphids and caterpillars, and to pollinate your fruiting vegetables and fruit trees for better crops. You need to provide them with appropriate food (certain flowering plants) and shelter.


Learn how you could employ and attract these little helpers before you reach for an insecticide spray. You will also learn how good soil is the key to growing healthy, organic food and the first defence in pest and disease prevention. 


Our expert will provide you with the knowledge and skills to ensure soil health and ways to control pests for your urban food garden.


 If you can, bring a sample of your problem pest/ diseased plant.
