This workshop is part of Lynden's Garden Series, a series of workshops throughout the spring and summer of 2017 that take a broad view of what it means to garden. For more information, click here.

Along with sun and rain, you can count on pests, both insects and diseases, eventually turning up in your lawn and garden. Knowing which pests to expect and how to identify when they arrive is the key to preventing a minor infestation from becoming a major setback. This session will help you become familiar with many of Southeast Wisconsin’s most common nuisance insect and disease pests, and provide an early look at some up and coming unwanted organisms that every homeowner will want to know about. You will learn several resources for identifying our most common pests and a variety of techniques for managing them.
