"Garden Insects: The Good, the Bad, and the Beautiful" presented by Diane Matthews-Gehringer, B.S. & M.S. Entomology
Saturday, August 6th, 9am to 11:30am at Skoloff Valley Farm in Susquehanna County, PA.
In this workshop we will become familiar with the insects that are commonly found in our eastern Pennsylvania gardens, learning about their life cycles, what they eat, who they eat, how to safely manage or discourage the “bad”, encourage the “good”, and admire the “beautiful”.
